Pokémon: Dapper Volbeat and Scuffed Cherrim

I’m not sure why or how I got attached to Volbeat and Cherrim, of all Pokémon, but here we are. I made Volbeat a dapper little guy, but Cherrim turned out to be very difficult to draw, for how simple it is.

WIP: Shinto Shrine with Shih Tzus

A work in progress illustration done in pen and pencil, scanned in using the CamScanner phone app; a shinto shrine courtyard with two Japanese-style buildings on the left, a large sakura tree in the center with a torii gate set before it, and a large Japanese-style gate on the right with a komainu statue visible beyond it. A dense forest with green-leaved trees can be seen beyond the wall in the back. Two anthropomorphized Shih Tzu dogs are walking up the path leading from the gate to the buildings, playing with a ring. A third Shih Tzu stands before the building, waiting for them.

There’s a number of things I’d change to shore this piece up: the composition itself is a little weak and some positions need tweaking, the gate’s roof flummoxed me wholly, and it’s missing elements that I either forgot about or passed on, considering the scale I was working with and my shaky hands.

This isn’t on my Redbubble yet, because I still need to finish it, but there’s other things.

WIP: Zorua Naptime

A work in progress illustration done in pen and pencil, scanned in using the CamScanner phone app; it features both alternate forms of the Pokémon, Zorua, sleeping side by side. One is grey with a white scruff, tail, and hair with red accents. It is sleeping curled up, rightside up. The other is a dark purple with a darker purple scruff, also with red accents. It is sleeping on its back.

There are definitely things I need to revise here: the tail, scruff, and head… poof on Hisuian Zorua; move Unovan Zorua further up to simulate being behind its counterpart and maybe some ground and shadows to shore up the composition ; and Unovan Zorua’s whole mouth deal and the angle of the head-to-body suchlike. But it’s pretty good for a first run through.

Kabuki Kitsune

A digital remastering of two traditional drawings featuring my original character, Murakami Momoko, a kitsune samurai, performing a kabuki pose. She is holding her peach blossom-themed spear vertically next to her and is wearing samurai armor with a blue top and a red bottom. She has a fox head and legs, furry hands, and three long tails curling behind her. She is standing on one leg with one hand outstretched. Across from her is a landscape scene with a stylized sakura tree and a rock. Grassy ground beneath both the landscape and Momoko is connected with a thin, looping strip of color.

I’ve pretty much finished with this, methinks. All that’d be left would be shading, but shading is hard and I am tired and I have been looking at this for a long time.

I’ve added this piece to my Redbubble – https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/103187263, if you’d like her to be on your stuff and things. Or you can take a look at my Ko-fi – https://ko-fi.com/sadayoshientertainment, if you wish.

Hut on the Beach – Rough, Ink and Pencil

I drew a whole landscape with ink and colored pencil, imitating traditional Japanese art. This fisherman’s hut on a beach is the initial scene of my game that I’m totally going to finish one day definitely.

A wood hut with a thatched roof sits on the edge of a beach; trees begin appearing farther to the right up the hill past the hut. A wood pier extends out from the beach into the choppy ocean. In the background, silhouettes of other islands can be seen with the vague shape of a mountain further beyond it.

Pokémon: Regional Variant Mareep Line

Here’s an idea that’s been percolating in my brain ever since regional variants were introduced: a Grass-type variant of the Mareep line, inspired by the Common Mullein plant that I frequently see around Colorado. This Mega Ampharos, to contrast the Dragon/Electric-type standard, is a Fairy/Grass-type.

I’m not particularly enthused by the Mareep and Flaaffy concepts, but the main genesis of this idea was replacing Ampharos’ tail with the Mullein; I threw its pre-evolutions together more as a service to that idea than anything else.

And you can watch the timelapse of me drawing this here:

WIP: Dungeons and Dragons Character Concept

While I was looking about for new spells for the warlock I’m playing in a Dungeons and Dragons campaign with friends, I came across what seemed to be a kitsune-themed spell and was diverted onto the tangent of searching for the kitsune patron. There wasn’t one, which is its own separate rabbit hole of an idea, but I did discover the game rules for playing as a gun. Whereby this character was thought up.

Here are some work in progress character design sketches I did of this as-of-yet unnamed character. She starts out as a saloon/tavern-girl who shifts to bounty hunting after an immortal outlaw destroys the saloon she worked at and slaughtered her coworkers. But she fails to kill the outlaw at the end and, as she’s dying, pacts with the Banished Gunsmith to continue her crusade, albeit as a sentient gun.

I’m really loving where this character ended up, predicated solely on the character feature, “is a gun” as she was.

WIP: Kabuki Kitsune

A drawing in traditional media of my original character, a Kitsune Samurai named Murakami Momoko; she is partially transformed into her fox form, with fox legs, furred hands, and a fox head. She is performing a Kabuki theater pose with her peach blossom-themed spear and wearing blue, black, and red armor.

A WIP of sorts, being that it was done with traditional media and therefore lacks stabilization for my congenital hand tremors.

Marvel Fanart – Viv & Riri Present!

I did a chibi panel redraw of Marvel’s Champions (2020) featuring Viv Vision and Riri Williams (Ironheart) presenting their messaging app, #ChampionsCharge. They’re my favorite Marvels.

Man-Moose On The Loose

Once upon a time, I was watching a video of a moose and her calves walking down a road and realized: Hey! That freaks me out a little bit! Too big. Too spindly. Too much leg. Whereupon this strange idea was produced and slowly, ponderously worked on.

Inspired by the bus scene from My Neighbor Totoro, here’s an anthropomorphized moose waiting at a bus stop. For this character design, I wanted to emulate the unnerving nature of a moose with this horrifying woodcutter. Instead of actually giving him antlers, I gave him a moose-themed umbrella as a further reference to Totoro.
