Inktober Days (10 Total): 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | Plan | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10
Alright, I finished drawing Saeran. I doubt I will finish Ray and Rika on time, so I will most likely finish drawing them in November. Ahhhh so close, too. XD
Originally, the prompt said Unknown. Rather than drawing Unknown, I wanted to try to draw Saeran. I prefer this style a bit more and I know I will pull my hair out trying to draw his tattoo. ;;; I guess I am giving myself a little break even though I still struggle just by drawing anything. XD
So… my comments on this drawing…
I looked through his CGs and found his eye shape to be similar to 707, so I drew it mostly from memory. I finished drawing the eyes faster than I thought.
I had trouble drawing his face. It was the similar issue with drawing 707’s face. I actually gave up correcting his face sooner than I did with 707’s face, and it came out ok. I was kind of shocked.
His hair… omg… I had a hard time picking a CG for his hair. Most of the CGs with the style I like were angled views. He’s not really facing the camera, so I couldn’t really copy (eyed) his hair like I did with 707. His hair changes a lot, just like 707’s. What I ended up doing was using his visual novel mode picture. That picture helped with certain major parts of his hair. For parts I couldn’t see, I used other CGs, including the group photo. When I finished drawing his hair, I realized his hair was a bit on the short side. I was going to fix it… but I was afraid of butchering and regretting it. It also didn’t help that he looked so cute with the expression, so I figured it’s ok. I only fixed one spot for this.
Oh, talk about his expression. Well… I messed up his mouth during tracing. He was adorable before the tracing. It looked like his eyes glowed. I almost put a bunch of sparkles around him. It was like he saw a mountain of ice cream. I wished that expression got transferred over during the tracing, but it didn’t completely…
His outfit… is flat. I know I messed up one of the easiest to draw outfits in Mystic Messenger and I should be ashamed… ;;; I especially messed up when I wasn’t sure where the cut was going to be. I kept adding and adding… but I forgot to put wrinkles and stuff on the shirt…. ;;;;;;; And what is proportion? :’D Oh right, it’s my archenemy.
Overall, this is another surprise piece. At the very beginning, I remember I was screaming internally because of the time it took to figure out his hair. I thought I would need to continue drawing the next day at the rate I was going. The experience took a quick turn and most of everything else wasn’t too bad. Considering my past experience, I was definitely expecting more struggles. :’D Pleasant surprise~ I had quite a bit of fun drawing him. His expression was a nice little bonus for me, especially because it wasn’t a planned expression.
I kind of want to give him candies and hugs. XD
