So I have a few sketches piled up that I made over the past few days, let me know which one ya’ll would like to see first in the comments!! 💁🏻♀️✨Just comment 1, 2, or 3. I think that’s easier then describing it??? Idk lol
🚧 work in progress 🚧 🛩
Pretty much finished inking my first ever Macross drawing. Gonna throw some color on it maybe tomorrow some time. I was really taking my time inking this, trying to make sure my lines are clean and purposeful instead of flat and dead. I’m still trying to figure out how line weight works. I haven’t quite grasped the concept but I’d like to do some figure drawing after I finish this piece. Trying to stay away from crosshatching and shading with inks because I’m planning on developing volume when I color it. Didn’t think it would look right if I did it any other way.
I finished watching all of Macross. Not sure if I brought that up last time I posted the pencils for this drawing. Really happy I did because it totally rekindled my love for the series. I’ve been trying to stay away from the anime style of drawing so far tho because I really want to learn that gritty western style of comic book drawing. But anime and manga art definitely holds a spot in my heart. Especially old-school 1970s anime with the skinny bodies and faces. I’d love to explore that style a little more, but right now I still feel like I have so much to learn that diving into that art style would probably do more harm than good when it comes to my technical abilities. Even really high level anime and manga art I feel takes some shortcuts when it comes to anatomy, volume, and shading and I wanna get a solid grasp on the human form before I spend too much time on that kind of art.
Anywho, rambling. Hope you like the progress! Can’t wait to see this drawing fully colored!
