An artist, anime fan, and gamer full of determination and failure. He hopes to get rid of the latter.


And here we are folks, at the 30th edition of Sunday Sketches! Hard to believe I'm still doing this up till now, but I just gotta keep chugging along. No time to stop now!

T'was my birthday this week so I didn't have too much time on my hands, what with planning and celebrating and such. Still, managed to do a little something.

I'll post a larger version later when I finish this.

Similar to last week's, this one is also related to a certain project by a certain person, involving anime characters as Team Fortress 2 classes. This time it being Seras Victoria from Hellsing as the Heavy from TF2. But that's all I'll disclose for now.

Until next week then!

<p> Here we are folks, at Week 29 of Sunday Sketches! I really don't got much to say. Like seriously, I got nothing guys. Oh well, art! Larger version here Did this little piece here at the request of an online friend who happens to be working on a project that I'm not going to talk about because that's how I roll. I'll let him do all the talking when the time comes. In the meantime, feel free to pretend that I came up with this absolutely charming idea. :P Until next time then!</p>

***7-15-11 EDIT: Whoops, didn't know updating the cblog would bring it up all the way to the top again. Just ignore this, I just changed the art a bit, nothing else new to see here.***

It's still Sunday damn it! At least from where I'm posting anyways.

Hey all, welcome to Sunday Sketches number 28. This one is rather late for a number of reasons, ranging from familial obligations for the past 3 days to basic laziness. I apologize, I gave myself a goal, and I almost missed it. But a man does not compromise, nor does he ever back down from a challenge!

Unfortunately, today is an original art day, as I've been using this Summer to help pad out my portfolio with new pieces so as to have something worth showing when the school year starts up again.

It's technically not finished yet (there are still 2 more characters I have yet to finish), but ah well, we soldier on!

Nothing too crazy, just an idea I had about cowboys and robots mashed into one world. Sort of like the vibe that the game Borderlands had going for it. Not too much to explain really. Faraway planet settled by humans. Earth treats it as a planetary Australia and sends all of its outlaws there. Shit goes down, antic ensue, janitor robots become sheriffs, etc.

I'd also like to apologize for the amount of original art that's been posted lately. I know it has nothing to do with Japanese culture in general so this c-blog really has no right to be here, but I've found it hard to do fanart lately. I can't help but put way more effort into my original work than art based on preexisting characters. I hope you will all understand and I'll do my best to try and make this c-blog more relevant on Japanator again. I feel terrible posting here but I have nothing else to show and I refuse to skip a week, no matter what.

Hey guys, welcome to Sunday Sketches number 27! That title wasn't a joke kids, if you don't want to see fanart that has nothing whatsoever to do with anime, turn back and go back from whence you came. Besides, the weather is beautiful today (where I am at least), go outside for once!

For the rest of you, while I realize this is Japanator, I couldn't help myself. I started watching the amazing HBO show, Game of Thrones. I also finished it recently and I gotta say, it's definitely one of the best works of medieval fantasy I have seen in a long time. It avoids all the usual cliches and replaces it with fascinating political intrigue and a great cast of characters that could easily rival Baccano's or Durarara's in terms of size and diversity. I highly recommend it.

Oh yeah, art!

Was a bit on the busy side this week so I didn't have too much time. Nonetheless, felt I had to make a little tribute to Eddard Stark, one of the best fictional characters I've seen in a while. And yes, he does always look that grim.

And that's it for this week, hopefully I'll have more time next week to make something more impressive!

Hey all, welcome to Sunday Sketches 26!

Not much to say, just getting by, one day at a time. Things are looking up for me for the time being, though I'm going to avoid getting optimistic for the time being, haha.

That said, I watched the movie Summer Wars not too long ago and I have to say, definitely one of the best animated films I have seen in a while. Really quite the animated marvel, both technically and as a story.

Did a little fanart for it, but I've been rather busy so I didn't get to do to much. Ah well, maybe I'll do that Digimon x Summer Wars crossover one of these days...

Nothing else to say. Well, I did get a neat new reference book and I plan to implement its teachings into my artwork as soon as possible. Hopefully you guys will get to see some marked improvement coming from me in the future. Hopefully!

Hey all, week 25, such and such, etc. It's Father's day so hopefully you're all treating the fine individuals who decided not to wear a condom that one time with the respect and reverence they deserve.

But seriously, I can't really joke, I'm not in the mood. Anyways, the art I'm posting this week is the stuff I was supposed to show last week, but I'm going to be honest, my life has kind of taken a turn for the worse recently and I really don't have the spirit to continue on. I hope you all understand and I'll do my best to turn things around by next week.

Really not too much to say. This is just some original work I've been doing for the past few weeks. I feel I really need to expand my art portfolio and show the kind of things I'm capable of doing, especially if I want to make a presence in the professional realm.

Might wanna check out a larger version to see the details better.

Well that's all I got, hope the rest of you are enjoying this wonderful Summer.
