The KAIZAverse
« on: May 04, 2013, 05:19:14 AM »
Welcome everyone. KAIZA here, and welcome to this little workshop of mine.
Here, you'll witness my struggles as I attempt to learn to draw as good as every other artist I've seen!

This will be my general art thread, though I will post fanart to time to time. This is mainly because I do struggle a bit with fanart (they never look right ;_; ); plus, when practicing, I just draw whatever comes to mind.

Well, enough talk, let's start with some oldies! (Excuse the quality, most of these were drawn on the go while in high school)

Spoiler for Hidden:

My humble beginning. My first two characters, Quincey and Eliza Harker. This is from...about four/five years ago, I think?


Same characters, a few months later.


And same characters, plus a few others, in a poorly colored sketch, two years later.

And here's a collection of random sketches related to this story idea. Only thing missing is the antagonists, but...that's for another day.









Yeah, this is just the beginning. Next few posts will be like a trip through memory lane for me!
Old sketches galore!

Second batch, go!

Spoiler for Hidden:











These are mostly random sketches I did through the years. High school years, that is. ^^
Yeah...there's still more to come.

Now, from my random doodling in high-school came this sketch:
Spoiler for Hidden:

Yeah, just that. But, a couple of years later, from that one sketch, a little idea was born. Those of you who were in the old forum or read one of my blog posts, will remember this idea.

Project CYBERSOUL.



Yes, from that one doodle of a girl with a gun (incomplete, might I add, I wanted her fighting soldiers) a completely unrelated idea was born. Of course, I started doodling more about it as time went by.

Spoiler for Hidden:







It went from this:
Spoiler for Hidden:







To this:
Spoiler for Hidden:







Man...this is, by far, the idea I have developed the most. From beginning, to end, to the backstories, to the setting...sure, there's still some work I have to do with it, plus...I haven't even made one game so far, but...I can dream, right?

Aside from those two ideas...here's a collection of doodles of characters from other ideas I've had (this one for either novels or VNs)!

Spoiler for Hidden:

Robot girl Muse.


Intel, since I can't think of a better name, the spunky Cyber Girl.


And Kagutsuchi of the Flames (Hi no Kagutsuchi), an antagonist from a VN idea I have.

Also, I apologize for the quality:

Chibi version of the heroines of some of my ideas. You can see Muse down there!

As for this thing:

Yeah, I blatantly copied the Neco idea from TYPE-MOON. Kinda. Sorta. OK, I give up.

And now for some fanart!

Spoiler for Hidden:

So, I'm a Mega Man fan. Yeah...


First fanart with a tablet. Ciel's new redesign.


Kohaku doodle.


First attempt to draw V/V. Fail at wings.


One of my first fanarts, a sketch of the Tohsaka sisters.


My first attempt at drawing Archer. With no reference for his clothes, had to get creative.


Following a request, ShirouXAyaka fanart.


My attempt at a Battle Network version of Ciel from Mega Man Zero


And a quickie sketch of Shiki I was requested.

Now, for the low quality camera shots...


I think I like doodling obscure characters.


Shirou, your hair, why?!


Ryougi Shiki, with Air Man in the corner.


IT JUST WORKS!

...
I think that's it for now.

And so...finally. My most recent sketches, done using my recently-bought tablet...

Spoiler for Hidden:




Random sketches, mostly practice on how to do lineart.

Spoiler for Hidden:
Same. I still don't know how to do angel wings. Yes, she was originally an angel.

Spoiler for Hidden:
And my recent attempt at coloring/shading. I failed. orz


This one, so far, is the best tablet sketch I've made so far. It's of one of the heroines of one of my stories. The top one in the chibi sketch above. Funnily, was listening to Another Heaven while sketching it. Maybe its influence can be seen in the final product.

Also, a WIP:

Yeah...the legs are being redrawn. That pose looks awkward...

Oh well. I still have a lot to learn, folks. This will be a long and bitter journey...but one day, my dreams will come true!! One day!!
But, for now, that's as far as I go.
See ya!

Yeah, I agree with Lantz, these are pretty good.

I do particularly like the Rin/Sakura one, although I think you need to either shrink Rin's breasts a bit or expand Sakura's (most likely the first)....

You need to give yourself more credit, you do nice work. :) I'd argue even that you're far better than I am. :P ...Except you are better than I am.  8)

Besides running the forum, I can provide avatars for people as well~
This is my mod voice. ...Most of the time anyway.

Aww, thanks guys. ^^
I still have a lot to improve on (anatomy, poses, originality, colors, the works). However, thanks for the support.

Also, new image. This one has spoilers for Fire Emblem Awakening (seriously, that game is awesome and addictive):

The spoiler tag/image issue has been resolved, so feel free to put that in spoiler tags if you so wish. :D

Also, that drawing's extremely well done. Keep up the good work!  ;D

Hey, you can read the admin forum, right? :P

Yeah, that issue is fixed.

I know, I know. I did that minutes after posting. (Though why I haven't spoilered them yet...?)

Anyhow, two more sketches. First one people probably won't recognize, second one if you know Tsukihime.


Proof that I like drawing obscure stuff nobody knows/cares about.


I hate drawing this type of hair. m(_ _)m
Why do most TM males have to have that hair?!
And now to wait for the mistakes...

What's funny about that is that its name is written right there in the picture (in katakana, sure, but it's there). :P
