You know what you used to do when you got Pokemon Red and Blue and you were in the forest. You looked for a Pikachu. Because Pikachus were awesome. Always gotta find one. Maybe you'll get twelve or something. Just in case.
I was ten years old when I first played Pokemon Red and instantly, something about the game sung to me. During the years that followed, many a sleepless night was spent staring into the endlessly dull mute-green screen of a generation one Gameboy, collecting and battling my new best friends.
Today, I sketched some minor characters from one of my comics, Bluff! They are crew members on the starship, the Blue Star. Sonira is the captain, and Akira is the helmsman. They're refurbished characters from my youth. Normally, they're rendered in a much more cartoon-y style. I like to try a more realistic rendering of Bluff characters from time to time.
We're having the week 'off' this week; Free Week. The shackles of themes have been temporally lifted to give the squad freedom to sketch and upload whatever they choose, if they choose to. I myself have been pretty short on time this week and thought I'd do a quick sketch of 'Rain' a side character in a short story I'll be finishing up by December.
Usual themes will be back starting with Pokemon next week.
Kiki's Delivery Service was my first Ghibli movie. I remember when I was a kid, and they showed it on TV. I used to watch it whenever it came on. It always drew me in. A movie about an ambitious little witch, full of magic without even a single spell.
Princess Mononoke was my first Ghibli Movie and remains still as my favourite. At the time what I loved immediately was the similarities the film has to another favourite of mine; The Legend Of Zelda. Naturally then, I concluded on doing a cross over- Windwaker style Yakul and Ashitaka!
I had a hard time this week because honestly, there's so many options from all of these amazing films. I think we'll be revisiting this theme down the line.
Whoops! I'm a bit late. However, it is still Friday! That counts for something, right? Anyways, here's my Shepard, Lilith! Paragon, friend of aliens, and lover of stores in the Citadel. Dodging death left and right, yet still keeping such nice hair. How does she do it? Maybe she's born with it.
