The 100th "self-portrait"

Taka Nuvia

Ah idk I don't want to always just post every single redesign of my char to GA, that feels kinda spammy. So I'll just leave the sketch here.

Actually I was out for some urban sketching yesterday, but after finding out that BZPower is back up - let's say I was inspired, and that happens so rarely these days that I let myself get distracted :)
About the sketch itself, it was as always done in ballpoint pen, because I actually like that better than the regular pencil these days. ^^' Doesn't smudge so much in the sketchbook, and I don't "have to" do lineart. Of course, all mistakes are also permanent. But that's something I can live with. ^^

---

small addendum: I just kinda wish my 13-year-old self could see what my art looks like these days. I think she'd be pleased - even if the new design isn't edgy enough xD By far.

That's a nice drawing, Taka! Lots of great, strong use of curves in this piece, particularly on the cloth and shoulder pauldrons. The shading on those is really nice as well, I also like the staff and the swept-back look you gave to the spikes on your mask :) 

Personally I love seeing people redraw their OC's over the years. not only to see how their character evolves, but to see how far their artwork has come. I myself am rather guilty of drawing my OC way more then I really ought to :P

Now this is a blast from the past. 

It looks great! I really like how you've drawn the dangling fabric --as someone without much artistic ability, I'm always impressed by people who can draw clothes and cloth realistically.

Also @Akaku: Master of Flight I love that timeline. Great idea to physically show how much your art has improved over the years.

Aw, thanks! :D Yeah I like using curvy lines, so I'm glad it worked out ^^

oh, that timeline looks cool! Now I also want to make one ^_^ Good idea, actually.

thanks a lot! :D eh, fabrics are still something I need more practise with, but good to know it's working out already ^^

I've always loved your Character designs over the years, and it still continues with this one!
