Swordsboy + Blue Abyssinian by Minakichan
Swordsboy + Blue Abyssinian
For a while, I've been thinking I'd like to organize an artbook or compilation book called "Boys & Cats," with the very simple concept of being a collection of color illustrations of different boys with different cats (drawn by different artists), since, you know, a lot of people like boys and also everyone likes cats. This is sort of my first conceptual image. I liked the idea of doing a samurai-ish character, since it's not someone you'd normally immediately think goes with cats.

I started this picture a couple months ago actually, but since then, I've really gotten into playing Touken Ranbu, so... I might end up drawing more boys and more swords going forward? Except they'll be boys who are also swords.

Anyway I'm quite happy with how the abs turned out on this. I also made my own kimono pattern in Illustrator-- it's a bit unfortunate that it's hard to see with the shadows and warp tool. Other than that, this is a piece that I ended up starting restarting bits on over and over-- for a lot of the kimono shading and the background, I just painted a bunch and then cleared the canvas over and over, so it got quite frustrating... I need to learn to concept faster or to just be less picky, one of the two.

Ah, and since I don't know if anyone would catch it-- the ornament in his hair is based on a shamisen pick. Shamisen are traditionally made with, ah, something that has to do with cats. (Google it ^^;) Maybe that's where the scar came from?

Kind of just want to put it out there and see if anyone's interested in the concept. Let me know what you think about boys and cats.

Clip Studio Paint, touch ups in Photoshop. Ah, this was my first time using it, but I really like using Clip Studio Paint! I think it's a better experience than Photoshop. Also it doesn't choke on 50 layers as easily ^^;

As part of my series of "take a cute mascot character and make its eyes way sparklier," here's a sparkly-eyed Jibanyan from the kids' anime Yo-kai Watch!

I have never watched Yo-kai Watch and pretty much don't plan to, but the design for this character is very appealing to me. (Is this like cosplaying a character that you don't know anything about? ...well, I've done that before too.) I was getting frustrated with a digipainting I was working on (about 40 hours gah), so I took a break to draw some cute.

I'm starting to find that I do digital painting when I want to improve, but I do vector when I just want to have fun...

Flirty catboy - LINE sticker
 I made this pic as an entry for a LINE sticker contest! I'm trying to win a Cintiq 24HD~

Star!If you wouldn't mind voting for my entry at giphy.com/stickershop/sticker/… that would be SUPER AWESOME, thanks in advance!!Star! Please, he's asking nicely!

This is kind of just a combination of "what do I like?" Catboys, headphones, jackets falling off shoulders, hairclips on boys, side ponytails on boys, etc. I used to actually draw a lot of stuff that was this kind of MOE DATABASE BOYS back in high school but I guess I "grew out of it." But it's still fun.

USB girl - LINE sticker! by Minakichan
USB girl - LINE sticker!
I made this pic as an entry for a LINE sticker contest! I'm trying to win a Cintiq 24HD~

:star:If you wouldn't mind voting for my entry at giphy.com/stickershop/sticker/… that would be SUPER AWESOME, thanks in advance!!:star:

I've always wanted to draw a cute technology-based girl, probably after doing those video game console gijinkas in college. I like the idea of drawing something in pixel that looks a little like what I'd do in vector. Originally she was going to have a lot of parts that look like parts of USB drives and wires, but it wasn't really cute or abstract enough so I did it this way.

Hi there!
Some time ago, I found your artwork [link] in zerochan.net and used it for a sign [link] ~ I'm terribly sorry for using it without your permission, but I didn't knew that picture was an original done by someone on deviantart x:

I can delete my sign from DA, if you want me to!

Hello! Thanks for telling me. I'm nothing but flattered, and I don't mind if someone uses or posts my stuff (especially if it's for derivative works, since mine is one too, as a fanart!) so feel free to keep it if you like. Credit would be nice but I don't mind either way ^^

Cute sign by the way~
