Looks like I skipped a week, so posting the progress for one of my first fudepen pieces, loosely inspired by Avatar characters, I'd say. Trying and failing, yet ever falling for, that Eric Canete monochromatic Copic look.
While we're posting old Tokyo Werewolf sketches, inspired by Chopper, obviously, how about some of my favorite DJ clips?
One of the best clips ever is Welcome to the Show by J Dilla. There's a bittersweet backstory behind this, the ironically titled final track of the final work of the late luminary, as I later found out.
Another oldie from the sketchbook, did some sketches for my old classmate, nicknamed the Tokyo Werewolf. He's really into music, DJs even, so I drew some werewolves (I presume) doing DJ-like things. I also don't really draw "cute" things too much, so thought it'd be a good chance to give it a go.
This is that famous "crate digging" thing I've heard so much about.
Say, want to cry a little? Check out this J Dilla mini-doc, especially here. Oh, man.
Pretty sure they weren't at USJ when this happened, but it just sounds funnier, ok?
Anyway, there's a personality in Japan named Ike who's from the US who snapped a neat photo during a meeting, and I thought I'd try the fudepen on a "live ink" portrait, no pencils, in my little pocket sketchbook.
International people in Japan are fascinating...it's somewhat complicated the longer you stay here. Tourists don't see all of Japan. You have to live here for a bit to really get it. To see it. To feel it. I hope he's happy. I hope they aren't forcing him to do anything he doesn't want to. I dunno.
