Re-sketched the body, got a little bit further with the lines, and got some of the colors set. Not bad for the ~1.5 hours I worked on it while being distracted.
Thought I’d do something a little different. While waiting for things to upload at work I’ve been reading some manga thanks to the horrible, wonderful Manga Reader app.
Jigokuren – Love in Hell
Though it is a odd, fanservice-y manga I couldn’t help but enjoy it. Even though it was a few months before I read the last few chapters I liked how the story concluded.
If I ever have money I might try to purchase it.
I’ve stared at the title of this one for a while trying to memorize it… and failed. I enjoyed the mysterious air of this one and soon felt guilty that I really wanted the main characters to get together since there was about a 14 year age difference… But they were just so adorable.
I also adore the art of this one. The style was just beautiful.
I refuse to look up if this one is on sale because I will buy it.
Story: good and cute but kinda predictable. I always feel bad when I want the siblings to end up together but within the first few chapters they had me doubting they were related.
Art: the style was nice… Except since it was an ecchi going on hentai I couldn’t help but be bothered by how thin all the women’s clothing was and how no woman wore a bra…
This one I’m not sure of I will buy but maybe… It’s at the bottom of the list.
Oh god… This story… I saw a silly page for it online and decided to see what it was about.
It started odd but okay however it quickly became weirder as the characters start acting on fetishes I’d never dream of doing. But the Stephen King like foreshadowing kept me going. (Memories of Bag of Bones come to mind: “I should have kissed her then. I never got another chance.”) Thankfully the ending didn’t leave me feeling drained.
As for the art: I felt the same way as I did with Gekkoh. Boobs just don’t work the way they seem to think…
I don’t think I’d buy this one and I’m definitely avoiding the live-action movies; the fetishes are a little too odd for me and I’d prefer not to cry like a baby if they keep the same ending since I have developed an unwanted habit of crying if a movie gets slightly sad.
But there we go. I feel a little more productive for the month. Hmm this may be something else I can continue for the hell of it…
I looked through my old drawings from high school – college and I can’t decide if I’ve gotten better or worse. One day I really need to take the time to scan more of them and finish them. I also wish I had as much time to draw like I use to. *sigh* The joy needing money and having too many hobbies.
I was thinking of ways I could get myself to update this blog more and had a wonderful idea!
When I beat a game or finish a book / movie / series I’ll draw a picture based off of our inspired by it.
…of course this plan has plenty of potential to fail… But it’s a thought.
All morning I’ve had two ideas I really wanted to draw.
“I know! I’ll draw them at lunch even if I should read some then.”
Lunch finally arrives and I realize… There are no pencils anywhere. The pencil stash in my old desk is gone. The pencil that would usually be in my purse is at home. I can’t even find a pen!
Oh well… Who knows when I would have finished them anyway.
