Shimakaze - The Destroyer - Kancolle by bpanthersg
Shimakaze - The Destroyer - Kancolle
I actually had a lot of fun working on this. Shimakaze (from Kancolle) is a pretty iconic design. She looks like a cross between Babydoll from Suckerpunch and a bunny girl. I've seen A LOT of Shimakaze fan art and what irks me that she's just portrayed mostly as a loli-sexy fetish object. The concept of loli-sexy scares me and I also wanted to portray her as something beyond a fetish.

Shimakaze is the name of a Japanese WW2 destroyer battleship. Apparently only 1 was made and she was one of the fastest warships ever made during that time. I wanted to give Shimakaze the character, a more badass element and thought it'd look pretty darn cool if she was surfing. Surfer chics are cool yeah? So I made her older, put her on a surfboard, added some waves and the little turret mascots that she has.

I'd say one of the trickiest things about this piece is actually the positioning of her left arm because of foreshortening. I had to do that army many times, I hope I got it right now.

Painting the waves was kind of fun and also an interesting challenge because there's so much stuff to look out for when you're doing waves - spray, the colors, the shadows. I know it could be pushed further but for a first time painting waves from scratch looks kind of rad. Drawing the little mascot turrets was kind of cute too. I especially like the one getting caught up in the wave and freaking out. 
Let's take a Selfie! - Love Live! by bpanthersg
Let's take a Selfie! - Love Live!
First proper art in a long time. I watched the pilot episode of Love Live! out of curiosity and found it rather similar in spirit to 'Glee!'

I wanted to capture the innocence, friendship, BFF impressions that I got watch watching the show. It's basically about 3 great friends who band together to become school pop idols to save their school from closing down due to lack of attendance. Perhaps the world does need some sugary sweetness.
Yes folks, I've decided to restart FF7 illustrated. I was sitting in class and suddenly, thunderbolt! I wanted to take up this project again.

I don't know how long I'll do it for but I reckon as long as I'm driven, it'll try my best to make it happen.

I believe someone has been drawing FF6 the comic since 2007 and its STILL GOING!
