Ryuuichirou - Original Sketch ♡
 
Hello my magical friends ♡♡♡

Today's post is Henriikka lovely OC Ryuuichirou, who I think is a very handsome tattooed vampire? How cool is that.

I had sooo much fun working on him, and I really got carried away with the details! I was inspired by  the movie Sakuran with all the over the top pattern and colors ♡

Working on Ryuu got me to try my lightbox by Huion and I love it! It's tiny and flat so I can carry it everywhere, and since I love to work on the go this was perfect! It also made me nostalgic of my days as an Animation 2D student ♡

Here's a side by side with the first draft and the final: I used the lightbox to transfer some elements from the initial sketch to the final. As a result the drawing is much cleaner and refined! I also kept experimenting with the ink on the first rough, so please bear with my silly tests. Material used are pencils, pentel brush pen in black and pink, acryla gouache in red, gelly roll pen in gold and white, ecoline ink in pink (390) and gold leaf.

I hope you liked this post, and thank you for being here, my dearest friends ♡♡♡♡♡

I'll see you soon with more exciting news, for now I hope you all have a great week, and take care!
