Murakami Momoko is my original character: a kitsune raised by humans and trained as a samurai. I’m ever-so-slowly working on developing video game with her, so I figured that I should put together a proper character sheet to reference.
I recorded and timed myself drawing this, because I was thinking of doing commissions in spite of my severe anxiety. It took about 2.5 hours, though I think I’ll later revise the torso again.
While the art itself went smoothly, this video, on the other hand, was just the worst to make. OBS seemed to purport itself fine, but Corel VideoStudio 2021 flipped. out. trying to deal with the video files. The preview was out-of-sync and useless, but worse? The initial sped-up video file occasionally flickered to a different frame every couple of frames. It would have been an epileptic nightmare.
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.
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.
I drew my original character, Murakami Momoko the kitsune samurai, recently. It’s also the first time I’ve drawn that spear both all together and from an angle, so that’s neat.
I do drawings in traditional media for holidays and birthdays, because my grandparents struggle with connecting things that I do digitally with me. Then again, they always seem surprised of the traditional stuff, too, so it’d probably just be easier to switch fully so that my shaky hands are less of a constant detriment.
I drew a two-tailed kitsune/fox napping in a bed of grass and flowers.
It’s a little rough, being done with pencil and pen. A bit of a given, really, considering the poor quality of my tools and my congenital hand tremors.
I’ve been doing some conceptualizing for the game that I’m definitely going to finish some time don’t worry about it. I’ve just about got the spear to look the way I want; it probably needs a few tweaks, but I’ll cross that bridge when it comes. I also did some sketches of my OC, Momoko, to parse how she’ll move about in game a little bit.
This sketch page has more notes for my game along with a decent sketch of my OC, Momoko the kitsune samurai. The UI is coming along, conceptually, so I’ve turned to gameplay now: specifically, defending.
My research indicates that the Japanese didn’t “wield” shields in the European sense; rather, they “wore” or carried and deployed them, which meant their hands were free for weapons that required two hands.
Some more character design work on my new original character, Momoko the kitsune Samurai. This sketch page has got a bit of everything: an armored outfit for her that I’ll need to refine, some spear concepts that are coming along, a simplified look for easier animating, and some notes on her name.
From what I, a half-Japanese man with only 2nd- and 3rd-hand knowledge of Japanese and Japanese culture, have researched: when kanji is used as part of a name or other word, it can generally be pronounced however you want it to be pronounced? I might be way off.
Here’s some more art of Momoko, my kitsune Samurai, cutting a peach with a spear. I did this in traditional media with pen and colored pencil. I did forget her gotdang fox tails, but that’s something easy to fix when I clean this digitally.
