I’d like to share some (hopefully inspiring to others, as well as me!) improvement… on the left you see Obi more or less the first time I drew him in Nov last year, on the right is where I am now in Jan 2017. Same colours, just new lines. Just goes to show the progress I’ve made in a couple of months working on drawing his face! (Wow… that haircut I gave him before is way too close to the AOTC mullet, aka a punishment from God. Sorry Obi!)
Both of these are inspired by the Sith incarnation of Obi from Wicked Thing, by @imaginaryanon - you’ve been living under a rock if you haven’t read it yet. Do it now.
Akaashi hovers on his toes, an extra inch of height over a crowd they
both already tower over, giving a small nod over a deep purple scarf
when he catches Bokuto’s eye. His face is tight with exhaustion, stress,
the extra sleepless nights intentional and not. But his eyes are bright
in the afternoon light, reflecting yellows of the sun, and a smile tugs
at the corner of his mouth when Bokuto waves back.
