I took a drive to collect my thoughts, and took some photos mindlessly with my iPod.
After this I put on Ian Merrigan’s album Dog Days as I drove.
I met him at least twice at MFAA last year. Do yourself a favor and listen to his dulcet beats right the hell now.
The link to his site here.
I talked about Death Stranding yesterday, and was hyped to do a drawing after that post. But while that is still in the progress stage; I found this Metal Gear Solid V sketch I did last year as practice for a different project:
I decided not to color it back then, and I can’t now since the paper has gotten a bit dirtier due to being in a tin with copiic markers. Looking back on it, if the background was a little more detailed, then Venom Snake and Revolver Ocelot would just be nigh impossible to see.
It did help me complete this huge thing for my Portfolio Preparation class:
I entered this into an ‘Art Contest Thing’ with other students, although I don’t remember if I got anything for it.
Last thing real quick: I read Monstress #8, by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda.
Now Maika and the gang gets to be escorted to a cursed island! By pirates, yo!
The Berserk influences became so strong the second I saw Kippa: this little arcanic fox-child appear in the first few issues.
Kippa from Monstress:
Puck from Berserk:
JESUS SAIZ, Puck says ‘Gatts‘ instead of his actual canon name: GUTS. That freakin’ “Band of the Hawk’ subtitle group is behind this, I know it. They ALWAYS DO this shit.
Kentaro Miura, the CREATOR of Berserk, already said, “Guys, its GUTS. Come on.”
Right. So, this is such a big plus in the series’ favor, its not even funny. I was about to say that Kippa is our Puck stand-in but Kippa/Master Ren both fill the Puck quota.
Still can’t wait for Monstress #9. Sigh..
Get some sleep.
I’m gonna draw still.
