Here’s the second character from my submission for the Feudal Japan Challenge on ArtStation.

Meet Tomoe – she’s a geisha whose two biggest passions in life are food and playing the shamisen. She owns a little Soba restaurant where she cooks and performs for her guests each evening.

She grew up with Makoto (the samurai). They were best friends and inseparable until her family had to relocate and they lost touch.

The ArtStation challenge is finally over and I’m SO excited to begin sharing my work with you! 🦊 It was one of the most intense projects I’ve ever worked on, the last 4 days of it I worked for 15 hours each day and it was hell but I loved every second of it! I’ve never been this excited for a project and the characters I created are so close to my heart now. It sounds cheesy af but they feel like friends now and I’ll miss them in a way. ☁️
//
The idea of the challenge was to create a lineup of 8 characters. It was my 1st time doing a lineup so it was indeed very challenging and new for me! I wanted to include some storytelling in this project to make my characters more believable and evoke certain emotions. I think this really helped me in the process and I found out how much I actually enjoy storytelling! So here is the main character in my story – Makoto, a former samurai who disobeyed his wicked master and became a rōnin. His daughter mysteriously disappeared after the conflict so he’s out to find her.
// I’m doing a step-by-step for this character which I’ll post this week so stay tuned! 🧡🦖

I posted a lot of the progress on these characters in my Instagram stories so you can follow me there if you want to ^^

yesterday’s inktober: villain / antagonist

This is the shogun in my AS story. She’s actually not a negative character, nor a positive one. She just has goals and would do whatever is takes to reach them. Really bad things sometimes. 

I posted some process in my Insta stories if you’re interested :F

Inktober day 2: Main character
I decided to combine Inktober with my project for the AS challenge because it will kinda help me build the world and characters better. So that’s the main character – a rõnin who’s in search of his little daughter.
p.s. undo, I truly miss you

Inktober day 01: ‘That thing you draw most’. 

People always tell me my characters look like me so I thought I’d do it intentionally for once lol.
Also, I’ve used ink like once in my life which was yesterday, so some of these drawings might be quite shitty but bear with me haha, I really want to learn ><
