Inktober Days (10 Total): 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | Plan | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9
Alright! Easy way out! Bye.
I was very tempted to do this because of time constraint, but… I do want to learn how to draw my favorite character in Mystic Messenger. : x
This… took… SO LONG… I spent maybe 2x – 4x longer than some of the other ones… Though, I was partially multitasking near the end.
For the eyes, I noticed he have different eye shapes depending on the CG. I picked one (or merged? I mean I don’t even draw accurately) for his eyes. I kind of like to draw this shape a bit more than Jumin’s or V’s eyes. It has a slight hint of how I usually draw eyes, which is the part of the upper eyelid where it curves a bit down. I failed to draw the inner part of the eyelids. I liked that style with the little lash going on, but apparently I couldn’t draw it this time. :’D
It should be obvious which picture reference I used for the hair. I chose my favorite picture of him and tried to draw that hair… If it’s not obvious already, the picture I chose was him in visual novel mode. I only stuck to that one picture for his hair. The thing with choosing a different picture is… his hairstyle is a lot more different in the CGs. The artist who drew the visual novel mode seemed to stop drawing early on. I really only had that as reference besides his sideways view.
I really struggled with his hair. Even beginning with his bangs I was so confused. In order to understand how to draw his hair, I literally copied (eyed) his strands of hair and pretty much draw that on the paper. (I actually did this with most of the drawings before this anyway.) I kept doing this and trying not to deviate too much… AND THEN I GAVE UP. :’D Well, I got most of it anyway. After I finished drawing his hair, I realized… I didn’t learn much about how his hair worked… ;;; I can kind of see why most of the 707 don’t follow this template. Next time I draw 707, I might just use the newer version. Just based off of how the fans draw him, I can kind of see certain parts of his hair that should be drawn… There’s a little pattern going on. The pattern isn’t too noticeable in the visual novel mode version.
Now let’s talk about… his glasses! Ah… glasses… Thank goodness it is canon that he has like 3 pairs of glasses, lol. For the chibi, I drew the diagonal ones. I used to dislike that version of his glasses because I thought it was lazy. I kind of grew to like them as time went on. I even thought they were the original pair when I drew the mini 707. :’D
My memory sucks! Well, when I drew the 2nd picture, I went for the original pair of glasses. I found it odd for some reason… ;;; So I went to the diagonal version…. then nope’d again. @_@ ;; I went back to original version and there you have it. (I think part of the problem is I didn’t shade in the grey area of the glasses, so it looks like a bunch of thin lines.) As for the glasses shape, I drew my favorite shape. :’D YUPPPP! It’s all in visual novel mode version!!! There is a reason why the visual novel mode version of 707 is my favorite. O: )
Face shape… I can’t get that right. @_@ Before I finished drawing the hair, I drew the face. It looked very odd. I kind of messed up tracing the face, too. QQ I got over the initial shock, so now I can’t tell what’s wrong. :’D …
I never really realized how bulky his hoodie is (or even if I did, I brushed it off). His hood is so huge and I’m actually a bit jealous about that. I want huge hood for my hoodies, too. ._. Mine are so ugly because they lay flat on my head. QAQ Anyways, because his hoodie was so bulky, when I tried to draw the shoulder and circle pattern… it looked weird. That’s why this time the cut is like this~
THIS TOOK WAY TOO LONG, BUT… 😀 Hue hue, bias. I can’t help it. :3 Fav is fav!
Since I didn’t get much out of his hair from this drawing…… I think for the next 2 pictures, I need to relearn the style. =A= Unknown and Ray have the same hairstyle as 707, but I’m pretty sure they never had their hair drawn this way in any picture… ;;;
Actually… I’m thinking of drawing Saeran instead of Unknown for Day 8’s picture… Hmm… I guess I’ll deviate from the prompt just slightly~
