I specialize in anime, cartoons, colored pencil, comics, drawing, marker art, pencil, pencil drawing, sketching, watercolor.
Obviously had to get around to drawing Zero Two from "Darling in the Franxx" sooner or later. From reference.
From the anime "Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!", which I highly recommend if you have any interest in the imaginative process of how anime is made.
A quick pencil drawing of an owl in a forest. Fine pencil, no eraser.
First experiment using a pair of Japanese calligraphy pens that I recently got. Finished off with a charcoal pencil.
Protagonist from the anime "Angels of Death".
Another practice piece with watercolor. I wouldn't mind revisiting this composition later once I actually know what I'm doing with the medium.
First watercolor painting I've done so far. Pretty fun medium to work with.

Megumin from the anime "Konosuba". From reference.
Some examples of the Mark Crilley manga style. Not a bad method I'd say.
Emotionally speaking, this is definitely the hardest pieces I've made so far. On July 18th, 2019, an arson attack on Kyoto Animation's Studio 1 left 36 dead and 34 injured, one of the deadliest mass casualty incidents in Japan since the end of WWII. KyoAni has some of the best working conditions in the industry and have made some of the most iconic anime to date, including Clannad, A Silent Voice, and the show that got me started on anime, Violet Evergarden (as seen in this drawing). I sent this drawing to them through their website, and there's a good chance it was displayed along with thousands of other fan submissions in Kyoto this past November as part of a public memorial service. While this was a tragic blow to the company and community, they're healing and getting back to their feet, and I can't wait to see what they create next.
