just a couple studies/exercises for may 2022, not much, but focused on practicing on brushpen.
*note the notes on the pages. just ideas and observation of how the tool and technique works.
The sketches are more or less based on the works of this artists shown here.
Well, lets turn back the clock to years ago. When things were more carefree.
And it was more abundant with considerable amounts of robots.
Perhaps it should already be known that I do like my
mechas and robots.
However, it’s not really talked about as much despite my heavy display of it.
Namely due to the fact that my former friends and people in general just simply don’t care.
Yes, I used to remember when Gundam Wing and Seed was a thing back in the early 2000s.
But, my fascination with mecha goes much deeper.
Back in the early 2010s, hitting it’s end around 2013 or so.
Marathoned lots of retro Mecha Animes such as Votoms, getter Robo, Mazinger Z, Ideon, Gunbuster, Evangelion, Big O and bunch of other things. It was a real “weebou” times. But mind you this was a time when anime was just becoming mainstream unlike the very recent days. And in the years of 2016-2019 and perhaps beyond. It will become more of a thing too.
I admit, power watched Darling in the Fraxx. Marking a half a decade dormancy of watching anything mecha. Frankly, it was not quite the way I wanted but it will have to do. The Show was about the characters, not the mecha, and the mecha’s designs are not as expected.
