Six Fan Arts Challenge

Rize Kamishiro from Tokyo Ghoul & Jin Guangyao from Mo Dao Zu Shi

These side characters are essential to the plot! Sure, they’ve made the protagonists of their respective shows suffer… but what would the series be without them?

I only drew Rize and Mengyao/Jin Guangyao for this challenge. Then I got preoccupied with other things so… I filled this with some of my older (but still kind of recent) fan art.

Quaran-tober Days 2 & 3

Quaran-tober Day 1 HERE.

Day 2: Burst

If you pretend to be someone you’re not, won’t your inner self try to “burst” out? If you pretend for too long, will you even know your true self anymore? What is a true self, anyway?

Day 3: Wet

A teru teru bozu is a handmade doll hung to prevent the rain. I drew the teru teru bozu I made in 2015.

New Drawing Challenge: Quaran-tober Day 1

I participated in Inktober in October. Now there’s a new drawing challenge called Quaran-tober.

Day 1: Bloom

Sometimes people ask me if I will finish my drawings but to me, they’re already finished. I guess my idea of art is different.

I wasn’t motivated enough to draw before because I only drew at anime club or during Inktober. Now that there’s this new drawing challenge, let’s see how long I will keep this up.

Xue Yang Chibi Fan Art

Xue Yang is a character from Mo Dao Zu Shi and The Untamed (the live-action of MDZS). I actually did a significant part of this drawing on my laptop touchpad because I left my drawing tablet at home.

I drew Xue Yang before too. You can see it here.

Future cosplay idea of mine

I have the mask already, I’m just tired.

There’s a reason why I love No Face. I wrote a bit about it here. I still believe that No Face is the embodiment of a person’s personality and desires. I also believe that the environment is really important.

Inktober 2019 – Day 11

I’m debating on whether I should wrap this up since the month is over. I don’t really see myself drawing in the near future without this kind of prompt thing though.

Day 11: Snow

Final thoughts: If anything, I’ve realized that my art is not as sh*tty as I originally thought because I received a lot of encouragement and positive feedback from friends and peers. I am happy that I was able to bring back a hobby that I once thought was dead. I still prefer cosplay and blogging over drawing but now I know that this is something I can do for better work-life balance. I only completed 11 days, which is not terrible.

Thank you for being with me through this journey!

Inktober 2019 – Days 9-10

Days 1-3 post HERE.

Days 4-5 post HERE.

Days 6-8 post HERE.

I kind of forgot that I was doing Inktober until a couple of my classmates reminded me.

Day 9: Swing

I combined two things I adore: anime and literature from the 1800s. The Pit and the Pendulum is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, one of my favourite authors. I drew Emma from the anime, The Promised Neverland. The prompt is “swing’ so that’s why I drew a pendulum. ^_^

If you’ve watched or read The Promised Neverland, the reason for Emma being the one potentially killed should make even more sense because of the anime’s premise.

Before you say anything, no, this is not the first thing that came to my mind when I read the prompt. The playground swing was the first thing that came to my mind, but I have never liked doing what everyone else does (AKA, draw the playground swing).

Day 10: Pattern

I drew baby blue eyes flowers. I am not particularly proud of this one, but it’s better than nothing.

Inktober 2019 – Days 6-8

Days 1-3 post HERE.

Days 4-5 post HERE.

I’m so behind, but I’m no longer prioritizing art. I’m happy that I got back into drawing but I have other hobbies as well. Blogging, for example, is something I want to do more of, specifically reviewing anime. Expect a cosplay post really soon.

Day 6: Husky

Day 7: Enchanted

I drew Princess Mansherry from One Piece. She has healing abilities.

Day 8: Frail

I drew sick Rin from the video game, Catherine: Full Body.
