Spear Demonstration | Rasheed : Abillities Project
A rotoscoping I did of Rasheed demonstrating to us a slight ‘preview’ of his spear wielding knowledge. I decided to start a pet project of Rotoscoping 2 of my OCs in different athletic or martial arts moves for my showreel since I won’t have all that much to show to be honest if they’re asking for my school work. So I chose Rasheed for the male representative since he is the most skilled from his military training days (a given since he’s the oldest one i have for a human OC) and though he is actually best with his boxing techniques, he does do quite well on a spear. Though he was rather shy about it when I asked and said something to the line of ‘I’ll do one of the basic routines btu can’t promise you much since I haven’t touched one for so long’.
Anyways— this is rotoscoped from a small clip of Frankenstein from Soul Eater anime. This was great practice really. Can’t wait to do more and this time from live action clips too. Will add color and shades to this. And maybe make it a few seconds… slower? suddenly its really fast here ;;; i think my computer lagged when i made it ;;;

WIP | Commission #001
FINALLY better internet! @__@;; oh gosh, coming back home is great but my hometown has awful internet— or at least the provider that my parents picked. They’re planning to change soon but meanwhile it’s rather torturous;; But anyhow, I’m in the capital for today so hurrah for good internet! Finally could find a little spare time to work further on the lineart for this one and well….. IthinkIgotcarriedaway. but anyways! Finished the frame, palette, tubes and paint and the painting inside. I only have to work on the laced boots then i can start on the coloring. Though I’m going to stop for the night so here’s the progress! Sorry for the delay dear;; just to update you that I’m working on it and all ;;; hopefully it’s alright with you.
If there was ever a time the tanned male seems to fall back to his shut-in hermit days, seems to be whenever you have one of your company trips where it seems that he has yet to learn on how to cope with his slight anxiety not having you home with him— particularly whenever night came. He still wasn’t too sure what exactly causes it other than that it brought back too much bad memories of the times prior to having you in his life— seemingly the daily peak hours of his worst times were at hand, particularly whenever bad dreams are at hand as night came. Barquest and the pups noticed it as well— how he only came down for an occasional small bite to eat— barely anything feasible by much, just crackers or a piece of bread and making sure they had all they need and just in case if they needed him for anything but since most of everything is taken care of, he’d excuse himself for most of the day, where he’d occupy himself with his research, tidying up his hypothesis and even visited his lab to conduct a few experiments while he was at it— just quick ones to aid him in advancing with his research to create an antidote for the goddess elixir as he had been working towards all these decades.
After all— he needed something to remind him of a sense of purpose until you returned. At least just for a while longer.

Just reblogged it from my OC’s blog since I want the original to be there— but a quick lazy animation of Rasheed’s ears twitching. Just needed to keep myself a little focused so I don’t get too worried… or him even. What is anatomy.
WIP | Commission #001
Work in progress for narihara's commission, first one on the list! A little nervous since I'm not too familiar with Seventh Heaven Series but did some back ground check and thanks to that and narihara's very descriptive text when she emailed me, it really helped alot in the minor details ;u; I thought i'd be able to finish the lineart at least by end of this week but the photo frame is taking quite a bit of time. And I haven't added the minor details on him so yeah.
I forgot how difficult drawing baroque-ish stuff is @3@;; ganbarimasu!

My final submission that passed just this week was that we were suppose to draft up the proposal of our Final Year Project that we will be completing next semester by the last Tuesday. I decided to use one of my Alternate Universe Roleplays with my friend, using my closest muse, Rasheed in an alternate world where he is a wolfdog and befriends little Seyren who is gifted in communicating with animals.
Its a short, non dialogue animation that is accompanied by a simple tune and i was frankly really excited because I was told I was allowed to collaborate with my sister who is in the Fine Arts department of my college for this. She did the color pencil rendition above— since we were going to have Rasheed’s human form animated in full color pencil to contrast slightly against the CG 2D cell characters & surroundings. Initially the lecturers gave an OK to it but I was frankly disappointed that during the presentation, i was told that my style was ‘too manga’. I didn’t think i’d be discriminated for my art style since they’ve seen my art for over 2 years and there wasn’t a single complaint.
I was told to ‘search for “my” style’ during the one month break. I’m a little heart broken to be honest since I’ve been drawing seriously for almost 10 years now and this is my style. But I’ll save you my sob story since basically I think I’ll just scrap this as an idea for my FYP. I’ll use my one of my other stories for it since this one is rather dear to me and I feel that I’d want to keep it this way.

.___. my assignment…. so sad about what the lecturers said still…. too.. manga.. they never complained before.. whuuuut.
I was screen sharing with darling as I’m doing my animatics and I was doing an expression transition for one of the shots with Rasheed in it when I couldn’t help myself PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
SEE. YOU DON’T WANT RASHEED TO BE ALLPERVY LOOKING. LOOK AT THAT FACE. but then that’s me. I look like i’m checking out someone’s booty. i swear its not like that. i’m just thinking how cute my waifu is PFFFF AHAHAHAHAH
