Have some journal pages from October and November! Still haven’t found a firm style to stick to - I guess my style will be whatever stuff I have to hand at the time whether it be paint, magazine clippings or other stuff. 

More of my journal pages: 1 | 2 | 3

so i was listening to this episode of the tachivan radio show and at some point kai’s seiyuu mentioned wanting a dragonic overlord kigurumi to exist and honestly so do i

dipluxian-overlord  asked:

Hello! I wanted to say I love Buttons' design so much, not only because he looks like Tim Roth, who I love, but also because of that glorious nose of his. I have a character who sports a spectacular schnozz as well, but I was wondering--how in the world do you go about drawing a beak like that from the front? For the life of me I can't figure it out, and it haunts and vexes me.

Thank you, I’m so happy that people appreciate The Nose! Your profile pic adds a lot to this ask too :D
I used to struggle a lot with human nose stylization in general and it took me a good 3 years of continuous changes in my style to arrive to a point where I feel more or less comfortable with how I draw them. The top 2 here are what I usually draw for Butts at a head-on angle:

His nose is not as hooked as Tim Roth’s. I draw it either straight or with a slight curve. This is what it looks in-game (good refs!):

As a general rule I like to define it using as few lines as possible. I’d like to think that everyone goes through the “over-detailed nose phase” at one point or another. Either that or the no-nose anime nonsense where you only put down shadows or maybe a comma-size line :D Just gotta find that sweet spot in the middle and you’re set 👌
