Weekly art#3 tatsumaki by HowXu
Weekly art#3 tatsumaki
Senritsu no Tatsumaki, also known as Tornado of Terror, is a character from the manga,"One Punch Man".


One Punch Man is a Japanese manga which originally was a webcomic created by ONE. This series was later remastered by Yusuke Murata.
I have been reading One Punch Man comic for quite some time. I really like it. I even read all the original "sketchy" comic too. I have to say ONE,the original artist, is really good at telling stories. His drawing skills are not very good, but the way he manages panels, humors, plot and characters are great. Even though people may not marvel at his drawing like Yusuke Murata's astonishing remastered works, they would still be attracted by its characters and story. 

ONE's works proves that with a good story and a proper way of telling it, even scrap sketches could be entertaining. I think this is very inspiring. My drawing is also pretty amateur or even primitive. If I could compensate it with something else like a better story telling or character development, maybe I could still be a good artist.

Weekly art#1 Nidalee Headhunter
This is a gift for a friend. 

I am a terrible League of Legend player. Unlike me, he play LoL quite well and have ranked platinum. Although when I played with him, our team's defeats were often resulted from my incompetence, he never reject me joining his team. Actually from time to time, it was him who invited me to his team and said it's okay since he would carry the whole game (well, at least sometimes he did it.XD). I am thankful for his tolerance. As he complete his substitute services and move on. I promised to draw a picture for him. And here it is. 

I also notice that there were too few illustrations in my gallery. I think I need to be more productive. So starting this week, I would post arts on a weekly basis. The content would vary according to what was I thinking or what I saw interesting that week. So basically it would be like some kind of  random sketch XD. I hope by giving myself a little more pressure, I could better improve my drawing and solve my productivity issues. Hope you like it.

A Few Thoughts during My Social Services

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 18, 2014, 3:54 AM


  It has been eight months since I started my mandatory Substitute Services in the nursing institution. My duty here is simple, live in there and do whatever my supervisor told me to. So apart from doing therapeutic activity as an occupational therapist, I also need to sweep the floor, bring water supply to the rooms, transfer heavy goods from a truck or even bring entertainment to the children of the institution. For example, last month, to celebrate Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, the institution was having an outdoor barbecue, and we four Substitute Services Draftees was assigned to “DANCE” on the stage! Not only that, they also want some popular dancing songs or at least exciting songs to give those children some “highness”. For that, they approve us to dance ”bar bar bar” by Crayon Pop and “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO. Therefore, my comrade and I had to practice dancing many nights and then dance in front of one hundreds children and their care-givers. Oh, man, how embarrassing!

  But I think that is worth it though. Despite we called the service users “children”, their average age is actually more than forty years old (most of their mental age do not exceed ten years old though). Most of them have passed the peak age of their physical or mental health, some of them were obviously declining in every aspect of their health condition. It’s not difficult to find out that most of them have little potential to gain new skill or new ability, and many of them could only deteriorate. In other word, expecting them to be more competent is too much to hope for, we can only maintain their health condition and current abilities. Therefore, my job is no longer just to provide rehabilitation program, more importantly, I need to play with them. I need to make them happy. Their health is like an unfixable broken bridge. It’s so fragile that even some small pressure could make it collapse. It’s so decrepit that no reinforcement could change the inevitable. But at least we could paint it with color. Fill their heart with joy. Help them to enjoy the life as they know.

Hello, BlackMasterElite15

Well, it's nothing special actually. After I finished drawing lines, I use magic wand tool to select the areas then fill colors in it with paint bucket tool. After I fill every area with colors, I use gradient tool for decoration. I will keep using use gradient tool until I'm satisfied. That's how I normally draw.
