Weekly Art #20: Haunter

Haunter

I’m kind of shocked I didn’t do a Pokemon earlier. So here’s the last weekly drawing, of my favorite Pokemon: Haunter. I don’t care much for the name, though I love the design. Here’s a wiki page.

Too bad this guy’s defenses are terrible, but I still use it a lot in battling. Could never bring myself to evolve Haunter, as I just like its design so much better than its evolution’s.

Anyway, this is the last week I’m keeping up with this, so this blog will probably settle down to posting mainly about site updates and random design articles, whenever I get around to it. And random artwork, too, as I make it.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the other art; pretty soon, I will collect them all into a gallery to put on the main page.

Weekly Art #19: Missile

Missile

Every week, I draw a fictional character for fun. If I don’t already have one in mind for the week, I also take suggestions!

Missile, the top Pomeranian from Ghost Trick. He’s a loyal little doggie who likes to bark ‘Welcome!’ at visitors, and always tries to make his mistress happy. More about him on the wiki page.

I’m not at all used to drawing animals, so this one took me a while. I’m also not entirely sure if Missile likes doughnuts in-game, but his first appearance had doughnuts in it, so…

Next week is going to be the last weekly drawing (although I still might throw up art on an unscheduled basis), so if anyone has any last-minute suggestions, feel free to run ’em by me.

Weekly Art #18: Godot

Godot

Every week, I draw a fictional character for fun. If I don’t already have one in mind for the week, I also take suggestions!

Godot from Ace Attorney. I got a request for an Ace Attorney character just as I was getting back into playing Phoenix Wright, so everything ended up working out nicely. He actually has a page on Wikipedia, so here it is (although as usual, watch for spoilers if you care about them.)

This is gonna be a bit of a tangent, but apparently the bands on his sleeves are known as sleeve garters, and they’re actually used in real life to customize sleeve lengths. They were more common back when sleeves were only made in one length and people had to adjust manually. I’ve never seen one of those things before, and I thought they were just a design element to the character…well, you learn something new every day.

Next week’s probably going to be Ghost Trick or The World Ends With You. I’ve been getting into those games, too, and I haven’t drawn anyone from ’em.

Weekly Art #17: Rundas

Rundas

Every week, I draw a fictional character for fun. If I don’t already have one in mind for the week, I also take suggestions!

This week, I drew Rundas from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. He’s a Phrygisian bounty hunter who can manipulate ice, and is a bit of a cocky lone wolf when he’s hunting. Here’s his page on the Metroid wiki (because there’s a wiki for practically everything…)

I speedpainted this one, without any lineart. I think the effect turned out pretty good, it’s a bit different from the thick black lineart I’m used to. Then again, usually my weekly drawings are a departure from my norm, so hopefully I’ll keep experimenting. Now if only I could find good brushes to use so that I don’t end up with default circles all the time.

As per request, I think I’m drawing an Ace Attorney character next. But I’ve used waaay too much blue in my artwork recently, so I might try something else.

Weekly Art #16: Black Bat

Blackbat

Every week, I draw a fictional character for fun. If I don’t already have one in mind for the week, I also take suggestions!

This week, I drew Black Bat (real name Cassandra Cain), a formerly mute, incredibly skilled martial artist who happens to be the daughter of an assassin. You can learn more about this character’s (long) history here.

Unfortunately, DC Comics has pretty much benched her, which is a shame. I found her to be a very interesting character, especially back when she was still Batgirl, but oh well.

Just 4 more of these until I reach 20, when I finally finish up this little project. Next week I’ll likely draw a character that isn’t human.

Weekly Art #15: Nayru

Image

Nayru

Every week, I draw a fictional character for fun. If I don’t already have one in mind for the week, I also take suggestions!

Nayru from Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages. Ages was the first 2D Zelda game I played (I think), and it’s quite nostalgic for me, even if I did have a lot of trouble beating it. You can learn more about Nayru here.

I still can’t draw water, but oh well, I tried. Also, the official art for the old Legend of Zelda games have pretty big eyes (in comparison to what I normally draw), so I apologize for copping out and drawing her with her eyes closed.

In other news, this weekly drawing thing will probably wind down to a close in the near future, as I move on to other projects in the summer. I’ll probably try to get to another round number, likely 20, so there will still be a few in coming weeks.

Weekly Art #14: Cosmic Whale

Every week, I draw a fictional character for fun. If I don’t already have one in mind for the week, I also take suggestions!

This was an old piece that was never really finished and released, so I just touched it up for the weekly drawing (Some of you may have seen an unfinished version before). At any rate, it’s a scene from Ever17, a visual novel in which 6 people are trapped in an underwater amusement park.

The title refers to the Cosmic Whale Room, which is perhaps the strangest room in this amusement park, and the two characters in the picture are the protagonist (who has amnesia and is known as the Kid), and Sara, a girl who’s trapped with him.

Unfortunately, the image is also ridiculously full of spoilers, because it’s hard to draw fanart of my favorite characters in Ever17 without spoiling something – so if you’re at all interested in playing through the game eventually, it’s probably not a good idea to see what I’ve managed to draw.

Next week is a character from The Legend of Zelda. A female character this time, because I’ve been drawing way too many guys lately.

Weekly Art #13: Frederick

Frederick

Every week, I draw a fictional character for fun. If I don’t already have one in mind for the week, I also take suggestions!

Frederick from Fire Emblem: Awakening, which I’ve just gotten into. And which I’m terribly bad at. His description says that he’s fond of starting fires, so… Here’s his article on the Fire Emblem wiki, for the curious.

I’m also experimenting with drawing styles lately, this time it was pretty fun. Next week? Well, I’m always taking suggestions…

Weekly Art #12: Archer

Archer

Every week, I draw a fictional character for fun. If I don’t already have one in mind for the week, I also take suggestions!

Technically week 13, except last week I didn’t end up having the time to draw one of these. Anyway, still on my ‘attempting to draw backgrounds’ spree, though the backgrounds are perhaps starting to look less like random colors and more like actual backgrounds…yay?

This week, it’s Archer from Fate/Stay Night. You can learn more about him here, if you don’t mind spoilers.

Next week, probably a Fire Emblem character. Because a friend of mine got me really into the series, although admittedly the only thing I really know about Fire Emblem is the gameplay and the relationships…so I apologize in advance if I completely butcher a character.

Weekly Art #11: Cthulhu

Image

Cthulu

Every week, I draw a fictional character for fun. If I don’t already have one in mind for the week, I also take suggestions!

I got a request for Cthulhu, so I drew Cthulhu. I know absolutely nothing about Cthulhu, so I just googled and wikipedia’d, and this thing happened instead. It looks like a gargoyle, oh well. Here’s the wikipedia page for it.

Tried experimenting with a slightly different drawing style, without any outlines. Drawing without outlines is really, really weird. And yay, backgrounds! I have no idea what’s going on, though.

Next week’s probably going to be a character from a visual novel, though I’ll still consider suggestions.
