Day 25

-

Dan1-L waited patiently until he reach the age of majority so he could have his driving licence and pilot heavy mechs, just like he have always dreamt of. The sense of empowerment on being a Mech-737 commander was pure thrill, efficiency at its fullest, immense freedom, so many buttons to push. Too bad that’s an excuse to never walk on his feet again, and be the lazy bot he was born to be. Lost to the hands of countless gadgets, Dan1-L ended up losing mobility from his waist down, because he still uses his arms to reach for Doritos while driving. 

Honestly the best part of the movie.

This is a continuation of my Mushishi-like artist box project. Inspired by the “Mushishi” TV animation series I’m making a backpack-box for outdoor painting sessions. 

 First, I made some concept sketches to visualise how the box will be used and what functions it should have: foldable legs and top so it can serve as a table, multiple drawers for small painting equipment, back space for larger things (sketchbooks and my portable easel), side straps for my tripods and of course backpack-like straps on the back. 

I will be posting videos including drawing these sketches and the progress on making the actual box on YouTube. I want to finish it fast and use it outside as soon as it becomes a little bit warmer!

Technical stuff:

  • Medium: Botanical FABRIANO Hot Press 210g B5
  • Sketch: Mitsu-Bishi Grade HI-UNI pencil
  • Ink: TACHIKAWA Linemarker A.T. 0.3 mm
  • Colours: 38 color Schmincke set + 2 custom greens.

「蟲師のアーティストボックス」プロジェクトの続きです。テレビアニメ「蟲師」に影響されて、屋外での絵描きセッションで便利なバックパック箱を作っています。

箱を作る前に、自分のアイコンキャラクターを使ってコンセプトスケッチを描いてみました。箱に欲しい機能を想像しながら。 折りたためる足と、天井部分がテーブルになること、いろんな細かい道具を入れられる引き出し、大きなスケッチブックが入る裏のスペース、三脚を運べるサイドのストラップ、箱自体を背負えるストラップ。

このスケッチを描くプロセスと箱作りを録画したので、編集したらメイキング動画をアップします。

“A kiss that is never tasted, is forever and ever wasted.” —Billie Holiday

I’ve been trying some different methods of drawing. It’s honestly a bit scary because I’m not so comfortable with pen & ink. But the only way to get better at it is to keep working at it. So, here’s a little Larry kiss drawing because I love their height difference and Louis in a beanie is my fave. I hope you like it! 💞
