    Hey mate. I came across a thing that might make you turn your head and go "...huh."

    Luckily it is a pony thing

    I know what the golden ratio and all that is and I know perspective and grid lines and I know composition. I do not know how they go together and in fact have never heard of such before.

    Day 420: Overlord Reporting

    This is Overlord. Overlord is a Seer of the Throne in Detroit. Some of ya'll will be meeting him.

    Actually like how this turned out, will try to ink it tomorrow. My brain is still geared for writing and drawing is getting the backseat. I blame the weather; it's hard to sit in my cold room and draw when I could be in the warm sitting room and writing.

    I was feeling braindead so I just sketched what I saw.

    I've been looking closely at a lot of anime styles recently, and from a lot of angles. A huge part of it is the movement; motion lets you get away with a lot of things that don't particularly work in a still shot.

    I don't particularly like the anime facial style, truth be told. The faces of the characters manage to consistently be the least interesting parts of their designs. I feel like that's a bit of a waste.

    Hmm, there's a challenge for myself... Draw a bunch of anime characters with distinctive and significantly different facial structures

    Thanqol... anime facial style? Cheekmouth is a invention of anime, to make animating the mouth easier without having to adjust the face itself. It's there to make animation cheaper. This restriction does not apply to drawn things and subsequently is a bad thing to do, i find.

    No, "it's my style" is not a valid excuse, either. Don't fall down that hole and don't even approach it.

    I was agreeing with you, man. And I carried around the quote "It only counts as your style if you could do it any way you wanted and chose to do it this way."

    Not the most common argument, but one that I know pops up occasionally.
    Did you win by reminding said ancient undying monster that it's more practical to possess an army tank or attack helicopter?

    Name one undying monster who's possessed a tank or an attack chopper and gone on to be successful. Heck, name one who survived to the end of the boss fight that immediately triggered upon his transformation.

    No, we made him possess a giant muffin instead.

    Day 432: Inking Month

    Okay, this sketching has gone on way too long and I'm gonna forcefully wean myself off it. New rule is no sketches for a month (excepting pen and paper days); pictures have to be inked, painted or coloured in some way. Let's see if I can get some new techniques and efficiency.

    Today's was a partial experiment in line width. Some interesting things learned but nothing to write home about yet. There were some other layers and an attempt at greyscale colouring to this but they didn't work out so I'm just showing the inkline.
