Final Fantasy Art Series

Hi guys! Summer is almost here and I am so close to being out of school, and as a result, I will try to be more active on the blog. However, with the end of school looms the daunting shadow of finals, and so I am drawing again to help me de-stress.  I’ve really come to love the art and graphics of Final Fantasy, the incredibly popular JRPG, and am going to start drawing characters from the franchise. So to start, here is the Warrior of Light, from Final Fantasy I.

Art Tutorial: Anpanman

Hi guys! I’m finally done with my SAT prep classes for the summer and I’m back with another tutorial! My little cousin’s favorite show to watch is Anpanman so I decided to make a tutorial on how to draw Anpanman since I’ll be visiting my cousins in Vancouver this week. Anpanman is the main character of Soreike! Anpanman whose head is a bun made by Uncle Jam. His name comes from the fact that his head is made of bread filled with red bean paste. This bun is called an anpan.

First, draw a big circle for the head.

Art Tutorial: Amy Rose Cat/Kitty Form

Hey guys I’m back with another art tutorial! Today the tutorial is on Amy Rose from the Sonic the Hedgehog series in cat/kitty form. Amy is known for her unrequited, obsessive love for the series’ main character Sonic, and they have saved each other’s lives on a number of occasions.

First, sketch a big circle for her head and the draw in the facial guidelines. Then draw in the small circular shape for the body.

Sketch the nose and mouth inside. Add two whiskers on the side of the muzzle, and then sketch in her bottom lip.

Anime Recommendation: Attack on Titan

photo (1)

Attack on Titan has been extremely popular lately especially among people who don’t usually watch anime. For Halloween at my school, a lot of people cosplayed as Eren or Mikasa with the Survey Corps. uniform on, and none of the people were Asian, which just shows how popular the show’s gotten. Since this series is so popular, I decided to do a recommendation for it. If you’ve seen clips of any episodes you might have seen huge, hulking figures that look like people except for the fact that they’re limbs are sometimes grotesquely unproportional and that they eat people. Yup, the titans eat people. The story initially centers on Eren Yeager, his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman, and childhood friend Armin Arlert, who join the military to fight the Titans after their home town is invaded and Eren’s mother is eaten. This series is pretty bloody and grotesque especially when people get eaten but overall has good action scenes and a very interesting story and background (hopefully they have a second series to explain the background). Overall, Attack on Titan is a bloody, intense series with interesting plot twists and awesome characters. Many people found this series gruesome, but I still really enjoyed it. If you watch this one, hope you guys enjoy it and have an awesome summer ninjas!

P.S. Can I just say that the theme song is epic? Even my brother likes it, and he’s not even into anime! 😉
