A few updates here:

Introducing Tadashi, my new character. In the second pic, I experimented with the Gradient Mesh tool. I think its an interesting effect, but I'm not totally sure about it.

Image

Image

I did it all in Adobe Illustrator. No tablet used.

Some portraits I did of my friends in my style:

Image

Image

A sketchbook assignment for my art class. I had to draw seven geometric figures and show value, include a background, etc.

Image

Tadashi and friends having a tug-of-war. Boys vs. Girls:

Image

Image

The reason those last few weren't scanned is because I drew them in my 13x20 sketchbook. And that won't fit on my scanner.

Some info about Tadashi:

He's Japanese.
He's in elementary school (despite how tall I drew him in illustrator).
He's always captain whenever there's a soccer game. ALWAYS.
He's totally into Capoeira.

Also, I'm having trouble when classifying my pics of Tadashi on DeviantArt. I don't know whether to put it under Cartoons or Manga/Anime. I wouldn't totally call it anime since I was more inspired by Craig McCracken when drawing him, but I also wouldn't call it an American style cartoon... It doesn't feel totally right to me. Can someone help me out with this please?

Hope I'm improving...

I would lable it as more of an American style type thing since it uses dark lines and hardly any shading, plus the fact that Japanese anime characters rarely have those slits especially the main characters. Trust me, I hang out with a bunch of anime freaks xD

Yo Leon, nice work bro! I like your lines. The one pic when you play with the gradients, it gave the effect of ari brush. As to the way you should put your character in DA? Well since it is your orginal character, I would place it as managa/anime original then traditional art. That is how I got my orginal character drawings. Although I use Fantasy and Fanart. Keep the great work dude! :mrgreen:

Thanks for the comments guys. I really appreciate them. I figure I'll just leave Tadashi under "Cartoons".

Next up is a self-portrait in a different style. Lucky Star style to be exact. Inked and colored in Illustrator.

Image

I saw a few episodes of Lucky Star and I thought I'd give that style a try. This was actually done days ago, but I decided to hold back...

Just think, who knows what else I've been holdin' from y'all?

Thanks guys. Anyways, I've been a bit busy and I'm tired. So I'm just gonna post this up and sleep... Oh, and you can find this comic on my deviantart. http://leon-fuego.deviantart.com


Patrick McKenzie is your average 15 year old. He wakes up, gets a B-average, is on the soccer team at his school, and goes to church on Sunday with his mom and dad. Lately though, he's been feeling less than human. He's become jaded and bored with life. Feeling that he's missing out on something, he goes through the motions of daily life wondering about his future. One night, while taking out the garbage, he notices the moon is particularly bright. Caught in a trance, he marches towards the forest on the outskirts of town. What he finds there, in the meadow at the center of the wood, may lie the answers he seeks, or it could be more than he could ever hope to handle...

True, soviet countries don't let you out unless you're asking for a one-way ticket to death. I'mm sorry BL I wish I could come over there and help you escape to the nearest free country :'(
