Re: Essential character art expressions/poses?

Well, Paul Ekman has done a lot of research into the universality of facial expressions. In his book "Unmasking the Face", he argues there are 6 universal facial expressions (in addition to the neutral face). Surprise Fear Disgust Anger Happiness Sadness The book explains how these facial expression...

Re: Tenkeiteki Tokyo [parody]

Did the first couple of backgrounds today. There will be at most 38 backgrounds (at least, that's the number of 6x8 inch pieces of watercolor paper I cut out). I'm doing them in a *very* loose style because I want this background thing out of the way as soon as possible. So 1 to 2 hours for each, ma...

Re: Tenkeiteki Tokyo [parody]

Thank you sasquatchii. I know that the crabs are cooled down so they start to hibernate. They are simply sleeping during transport and in those machines. A lot of the Chinese mitten crab is actually caught in Europe (Germany, Netherlands) where it is an invasive species. They're packaged and cooled ...

Re: Tenkeiteki Tokyo [parody]

Thank you Kia. Yes, the idea is to do the whole thing by hand as experiment to see how it will look and how long it takes to make. I'll also try out different styles and methods. Making the line drawings doesn't take more time than doing it on the computer. Also I prefer the nib pen and a #3 Kolinsk...

Re: Tenkeiteki Tokyo [parody]

Well, I got the vendor machines done. There are only 6 of them but I got to keep things simple if I want to finish this before March (and I got an idea for the nano stuff so I really want to finish this before March). The vendor machines are a way of chosing branches in the story. The protagonist Do...

Re: Tenkeiteki Tokyo [parody]

Worked on the sprites of Dojikko today. Staying in the spirit of the WIP I'll post some of them as they were made. Typically, I do a serie of 3 sprites on 1 sheet of paper unless I need some accuracy. Like Jukujo with her gun in the previous post, I drew that one bigger and she took up the entire sh...

Tenkeiteki Tokyo [parody]

TENKEITEKI TOKYO Hello people! My New Year's Resolution has been to make a short visual novel. I hope it will be finished within two months (no guarantees though). The name is "Tenkeiteki Tokyo", which means as much as "Typically Tokyo" (I know I forgot the "na"). It's a parody story about a young ...
