Fan Art: Tomioka Giyuu from Kimetsu no Yaiba

Hello!

Today’s fan-art is of Tomioka Giyuu from Kimetsu no Yaiba (eng: Demon Slayer)!

I’ve caught up with both the anime and the manga, and let me tell you, this is not for the faint of heart or for people who love their characters a lot (the mangaka takes “kill your darlings” of story-writing to a *whole* new level). However, if you can handle some gore, this is a must-check out manga and anime! Story, characters, art….everything is on point!

One of my favorite characters has to be Giyuu!

Happy Halloween 2019!

Hello!

I made this little project just for my close friends and family! They have been very supportive of me and my art and they’re just some of the most wonderful and lovely people I’m lucky to have in my life.

But, seeing how much they enjoyed it, I thought I might as well share it on the blog for others to see, too!

I love making people smile with the power of art and storytelling and I hope this little Halloween 2019 project makes your day just a little brighter as well!

(Note: See Part 1 and then Part 2 to get the full experience! — and as always, *please do not repost these images anywhere else!* Thank you!)

Enjoy!:

Fan Art Fridays — Kunikida-san from Bungou Stray Dogs

Hello! And Happy Friday!

Continuing on my little Bungou Stray Dogs (BSD) fan art indulgence… I decided to draw Doppo Kunikida-san! I love his extremely straight forward personality and his ideal of wanting to be able to save everyone. Let this poor child smile and relax, though! He deserves a break 🙂

Peace ^.^

P.S. His former job before the ADA was a math teacher….As much as I’m not a fan of math (despite holding a minor degree in it) I think it would be fun to have him as a teacher!

Fan Art Friday — Bungou Stray Dog’s Fukuzawa-san

Yo! It’s been a while since I posted some fan art.

I have caught up with the manga and just finished watching season 3 of Bungou Stray Dogs – aka BSD (will do an Anime Fridays of this beautiful series soon!). Er my gahd, it was so awesome! It was really nice to see my favorite characters again on screen all gorgeously animated and I just had to draw some fan art for it!

There is this lovely moment where Yukichi Fukuzawa-san, a usually stoic and serious character, smiles….and ahhh! It was so cute and precious! I knew I had to do a fan art “study,” if you will, of that moment and this is the result down below:

Fan Art Friday — Howl’s Moving Castle (Howl and Calcifer)

Hello! It’s fan art time! And yes, I realize it is not a Friday when I am posting this, but you know what? Every day is a Friday if you believe hard enough! (read: I wish every day was like a Friday but nope. Reality.)

This is an older piece but I still thought I’d share it with you! It’s kind of a slight turning point piece for me since this is when I started to experiment with adding grainy textures to my artworks. And, boy, did that make a huge difference!

The art is of Howl in Harry Potter’s Ravenclaw house robes with Calcifer as his familiar. Both of them are characters from Studio Ghibli’s Howl’s Moving Castle:
