Persona 2 Sketches

I started a new save file in Persona 2 this week, and this time I'm determined to finally finish it. I've been really interested in what I've seen of Eternal Punishment so I gotta beat Innocent Sin first.

Clove's Costumes

Another one for the clothes changing project! It's been like a year or two since I continued this project.

So this one is for Clove! 

The only ones I've actually drawn before now were from the Clove Retrieval, Land of the Clouds, and Blizzard. And then I've drawn variations of Ducklin and Hillside Manor in the past. But these were really fun to make up. At first she is a lot more like childish and then once she meets Sarah, she starts to look up to her and takes on her black clothes/nets clothing style, thinking it's really cool. Then she gradually gets closer to JrTr and her clothes are more casual and relaxed. I definitely had to keep her green color palette all the way through, even if it isn't exactly apparent in the black clothed time. This was really fun to do, I love making up costumes that I've never drawn for my characters!

Gamishness Project Continued!

I decided to continue my Gamishness project, where I draw a scene from The Nays, but in the style of a video game.

This one takes place during the Field Ravens Eventure when Gair first meets Trekkon, Rasake, and the rest of the Field Ravens.

And for this one, I drew it in FF8 style! I actually enjoyed drawing the background more than the characters on this one, because it felt more natural to recreate in this style. Since the PS1 models are not detailed at all, I had trouble emulating that style because expressions is my favorite thing to draw usually. I referenced some scenes of the orphanage in FF8, because those were kind of what inspired the scenes in this part of The Nays to begin with. My favorite part about FF8 is the story, characters, and composition. Obviously there are better looking games out there, but I still really love how detailed the backgrounds are, considering their limited resources at the time. The compositions obviously still hold up really well. The updated resolution in the Steam Mod makes the art look a lot nicer too, but I tried to emulate the old style by sharpening and blurring certain parts, to feel more genuine.

Fruit Punch Type

Back when I was a kid, I created a monster catching show/game with my brother and his friend. We made it similar to Pokemon, but made up our own types. The most memorable type was Fruit Punch type. And then me and my brother were talking about how we need to make a monster catching game some time together, since we've never really made one of those before, other than concepts when we were really young. I remember there being an orange dinosaur and a purple/pink creature, so I did some concepts based on what I remembered being in the game.

More Blue Huevembers!

I love that the blues last longer in Huevember, especially because a lot of my Nays have blue color schemes (though the most probably have purple maybe?).

Rabiah's Brother

So I designed a new character the other day. This is Rabiah's older brother! I can't decide on a name, but my options are written on the left of the page. I'm kiiinda leaning towards Xavier or Derek, but I'm not sure.

Pokemon Week!

Since Pokemon Ultra Sun came out on Friday, and I went to see the new Pokemon movie in theaters on Tuesday, this has been a bit of a Pokemon week! So naturally I drew some Pokemon.

Buffalo Wild Wings Life Drawings

On Tuesday I went to see the new Pokemon movie in theaters, and afterwards me and my brother went to Buffalo Wild Wings. I sneaked in a few life drawings while I was there since it's been like a month since I've been able to do any.

Music Mania & Halloween Sketch

I haven't had a whole lot of time to draw digitally other than Huevember, so these are all I've really done in the past month that wasn't for Huevember or other projects.

I tried doing another music mania, but it just wasn't inspiring me as much as it used to for some reason. I was looking back on my old ones after I drew these, an I realized this might be my least successful Music Mania session. Oh well, just gotta keep drawing until I get unstuck again! As a bonus, I designed Dark Wolf and what the VR Headset looks like. I've been in the mood for recently, since I wrote up a whole description of that World and re-imagined some things from it.

Also this is a digital painting I did back for Halloween!
 I celebrated by rewriting the Timeless Abyss Eventure, which includes the Ghosts' Safe Traveling Day Ceremony (aka Tag World's version of Halloween). But I decided to draw this little mini-illustration of Snull scaring Ralphie (who is dressed as a pirate).

Cabba Digital Painting Process

I finally caught up in the Dragon Ball Super dub, and so far Cabba's my favorite new character they've introduced. Now I gotta wait every week for the new episodes.

But this drawing I did based on this original Vegeta drawing from the Saiyan Saga. I used the same palette, so this was a fun little challenge!

Here's the final digital painting!

And then here's my process on how I got here!

Sketchbook Music Mania Drawings!

Here are some Music Mania drawings I did in the car last weekend. I drew the one of Trekkon and Gair in the dark, which was reminiscent of old times. Except I had a phone to shed some light on it instead of waiting for the street lights to light up my page. Modern technology at its finest.

Daisetsu & Chavez

Two characters who were originally from Outlaw Bar.

Daisetsu is an unpredictable member of Red Moon who loves playing with fire. He carries a lighter with him everywhere, and often has the urge to set flames to whatever is in his sight. He enjoys burning his enemies to death, and has a lot of confidence in his abilities.

Chavez is a laid back man who co-owns a small cafe in Black Fortress. He is very protective of the cafe and becomes paranoid if anyone tries to take control of it, even the co-founder. He has to abandon his cafe once his wife, Fire2Ice is kidnapped by Kajur. He changes his entire lifestyle to journeying and adventuring to find her. He leaves his daughter Shimahari under the care of his friend Gradd while on his search.
