Doing a "series" of the zodiacs wielding their element. Nezumi's element is water.

I really need to scan my sketchbook.

crash boom

Running out of witty titles.

Decided to re-design Buta on a whim, after looking at some artwork.

Yay fight scene!

and I'm back

I haven't yet had a chance to scan my sketchbooks yet, and I've been a bit distracted with the new WoW patch, so I didn't get to break out the tablet until today.

Usagi has a moment of peace.

A Christmasy themed Tora!

winter time!

For another artstickers prompt! Intending for this to be the Christmas omake image.

Also, just a notice that no new art will be posted for the next two weeks, as I'll be away on holiday. ^^ The comic will still be updated as usual as I'll be bringing my laptop along!

a wild sketchdump appears!

Uhh well, it would be if I didn't cut out the other sketches. OH WELL.

Gijinka Tora and Inu. I toyed briefly with the idea of them having this as an "alternate, human-world" form, but since I don't intend to write them having any human world interactions any time soon, the idea was scrapped.

I... don't really know.

A bit of a weird prompt, but nonetheless.

For artstickers, of course.

The commentators of the Battle, who will be appearing next chapter!

The one in green is Sha Wujing (沙悟净). He's tech-savvy, a bit of an audiophile (thus the headphones) and is easily excitable. He's the commentator who is screaming into the mic when something exciting is happening.

Next to him is Tang Sanzang (唐三藏). He's the more level-headed of the pair, and can be counted on to make more objective commentary.

They were both based off characters from Journey to the West. Watch me butcher classic chinese literature, bwahaha!

A sketch for a character I meant to make Uma's guardian, but all it looks to me now is an older Mac...

PARTY wa hajimaru ze!

Insert obligatory Basara reference here.

Something that will probably happen a lot later in the story!

Halloween wallpapers!

No picture for you today, unfortunately, but in case you missed the update on the main site, here's the link to the wallpaper gallery!

chapter 3 roughs!

Are done~

(insert witty title here)

He put on the goggles!

More demon chair. Future wallpaper/cover?

Maybe if we hold hands, we'll become one, and we'll never be apart for the rest of our lives
Let's keep dreaming like this, pretending we'll never wake up
But then again, it's called a "dream" because we wake up from it, right?
Then let's name it something else

The lies I’ve told up to now, the truths I’ve told up to now
I became worried about which outweighed which, and stopped searching

I was going to upload a wallpaper pack on webcomicwallpapers, but it appears their upload form is broken and won't let me upload my zip file.

I'll post this along with the link to the pack on the main comic page when I'm able to upload it properly, but for now, I'll throw this up here as a thank you for those who visit this blog. ^^

Also part of a prompt for artstickers!

more chapter 3 stuff

Sketch for Chapter 3's cover, and also as a submission for an artstickers prompt.

Bust sketches of the Zodiacs, trying to get into the hang of drawing some of the characters I don't draw a lot. ^^;

Tora gets all the cool sketches

And meanwhile these two are just too cute for words. *makes tags for them*

Thursday, October 8, 2009

how about that, huh

Many, many apologies for neglecting this blog recently, Aion among other things has been chewing up my time.

I've recently gotten a few comments to increase the update frequency, and trust me that has been something I've been thinking about for weeks. Right now I don't think I can trust myself to churn out enough pages for a twice weekly update. If things change though and I can get enough time to draw more comics, then I certainly will. :)

Anyway, I scanned my sketchbook today to share some of these here. It took almost the whole afternoon, but by the time I trimmed them down it was only these that made the cut... oh well.

Three new characters (not including Saru) are gonna be introduced in chapter 3, the two on the left are Battle commentators, and the one on the right is Den, Saru's guardian.

Neko sitting in a sort of... demon chair. Oda Nobunaga can suck it!

chapter 2 done!

Yup, as of last night I'm done inking chapter two. :)

Forth to greater fight scenes!

Some upcoming stuff for chapter 3.

Been busy on the Aion open beta. T_T

Artslam day 59, 60

Last Artslam post. Of course, that doesn't mean I won't be posting sketches anymore! ^^

These three are totally BFFs. (or at least, I'm setting them up to be. eventually.) Even if Tora and Inu do hate each other's guts.

Some fun doodling of the characters in some casual wear. What's Usagi, Tatsu, Neko and Hitsuji doing in the same shot? I don't know...

Every series needs a High School AU right?!

Artslam day 54-58

Somewhat incomplete sketch of Tatsu. Almost contemplating giving him wings, since I've been drawing so much Aion fanart lately, but on second thought I don't think flying characters suits my story...

Quick fill of the Pixiv expression meme to practice, as I've spent the past week drawing mostly Aion stuff. @_@;
top row: blank, smiling, enraged, sad
second row: crying, bashful, impatient, surprised
third row: submissive, dominant, with something they like, with something they hate

Preliminary sketch of Tora and Inu's fight that never got used. Oh well...

These two again...

Artslam 52, 53

One week to go!

Artslam day 42-51

With this post, it seems I've mostly caught up. Saved by the sketchbook! Sketch dump ahead!

Practicing some action poses for Saru for the big fight scene in chapter 3.

Yet another potential comic cover/splash/promo image thing. It goes a bit longer, but I screwed up Uma's legs.

I seem to draw these two together a lot, hmm... They are the main characters though, so I guess it's warranted...

Usagi attacking with her funky flute thing. I have no idea what it means when martial arts people hold their hand like that, but it sure as hell looks cool.

Ushi betrays Neko?? Who knows? Even I don't...

I don't draw Buta very much, huh? Poor guy.

Alternate rendition of Inu's hair.

I've been listening to Nico singers all day, and sketching out two epic Vocaloid PV/Aion pictures, so I couldn't help but do this too. I don't really know where I was going with it... but I guess it was a convenient excuse to try out lineless colouring.
