Simply Goku


Next up is Goku, as he appears at the beginning of Dragon Ball Z. It was one of the shows I constantly watch after school when they aired on Toonami. From the characters, to the backgrounds, to the over the top fights, it became a show I loved. I even played some of the video games, with Budokai Tenkaichi 3 being my favorite for its huge playable character roster and main theme song. I wouldn’t say that I lost interest in it these days, but rather it cooled down. I still revisit the Dragon Ball universe on special occasions. As of this post, I have yet to watch the recent series, including Kai and Super.

Sunset Paradise


There are two rules I follow when doing these daily drawings. 1) No more than 4 hours on a drawing. 2) It must be submitted before 12 midnight, Eastern time.  However, like all rules, they are meant to be broken, and this was a strong example of it.  I will update this post later today, but right now, it’s late (as of August 12th, 2018, 1:30 am EST), and I have work in the morning.  I will say this:  The image was in my head for a long time, and it wasn’t easy to pull out.

Update (August 12th, 2018, at 9:09 pm): This image was inspired on based on a lot of things, including 90s pop culture (film, tv, and animation) and tropical beach setting at the time. I figured I do that last as the grande finale to “Beach” week.  However, knowing that this was going to take a lot of time and with Saturday being a busy day for me, I worked on portions of it while doing the other daily drawings.

It was easy at first when I started with the background. Unfortunately, the hair became the most difficult, because I was trying to imagine/remember what it looked like. I ended up searching online of different hairstyles, and choose the parts that best represented my vision. Even after the penciling stage, I found myself having to make some last minute changes.

When I finally finishing it, I looked back and wondered, “Does it live up to my vision?” Yes and no. I personally thought the placement of everything, along with background, and some of the coloring were the strongest parts.  Still, I felt the need to improve on this. I did a few minor touch ups to the image, including the face, makeup, and coloring, before I decided to let her go.
