Hey guys~ I’ve been working on some drawing and writing lately, and thought maybe I’d try to brave my shyness and share my artworks here I’m primarily a digital artist, and I use Clip Studio Paint and a Huion Pro 13 Display tablet for drawing.
I randomly got a huge wave of inspiration and created a new character for the first time in forever. So I created Ryuusuke/Ryu. He was supposed to be more of a yakuza world character, but somehow the band side ended up more interesting to me.
I decided to draw him both as casual/off-stage and how he’d look on-stage or for photoshoots:
I swear he reminds me of someone but I haven’t figured out who yet…
If you would like to read and learn more about him, you can read his in-depth profile here: Ryuusuke profile - JustPaste.it
I also wrote a quick one-off story of one of his band’s concerts here: Nagoya Black Cat - JustPaste.it
Hopefully you enjoy it! I haven’t written anything in a long time so I was super stoked to finish a new piece.
(Side note: if anyone knows better sites for saving and sharing things like stories, please let me know!)
My current WIP is also another OC, but a quite old one from an old Livejournal community RP project called kabuki arc. His name is Makoto:
Drawing and painting his tattoos are gonna be the death of me.
Last piece of art I finished before all this was a piece of Resident Evil 2 Remake fanart of Leon back in 2019:
Another WIP I miiiiight finish someday (even tho I don’t really play WoW anymore):
Also have plans for some fanart of my favourite bands, I hope.
Thanks for looking! I’ll be sure to post again if I make any new art or finish one of the WIPs. You can find me on twitter or instagram as koutetsuhime, but I honestly post art like… once in a blue moon haha Here’s to hoping to change that!
EDIT: switched for updated one, finished his neck tattoos
Somehow random ispiration hit me~
Finally finished this. This is my OC from a long time ago (Xiao-Yue) and my friend’s OC (Shen-Yu). Part of an old rp game called zodiak… so so long ago. Xiao-Yue was a triad branch leader who was half-japanese, half chinese, but also half-demon. Shen-Yu was his advisor and partner, a demon who saw visions.
New band member for Devil’s Rain- this time it’s Haru! Haru is the youngest and least experienced in the band, but still a fan favourite (I can’t imagine why~)
Haru and Ryu together:
Wow. I really like your style! Very nice art work there! I really enjoy this one, it’s very well done. Is it made only with computer? Or are you using a tablet for the comp? I remember one of my old friend used to do storyboards with a tablet.
Eitherway, this is very nice Thanks for sharing!
Btw, I’m also and artist, but more of a poet than visual arts. I have a thread on here, if you are curious.
the detail in the hair and tattoos is truly remarkable. i love the personality you can put into the characters with just a still shot. keep drawing, it’s amazing !
@Masato Yep, all computer ^^ I use a Huion display tablet and Clip Studio for my work! Thank you very much!
I’ve checked out your thread before and your work is nice too!
@Ezra Oh wow, thank you! It means a lot to hear that!
Thank you both for commenting! It means the world to me
I have another fanart done, but debating whether I should post it or not. I did make a pixiv account finally though, and it’s on there (but it’s R-18). I’ll be posting my arts there too: https://www.pixiv.net/en/users/9561959
Made a twitter just for art (may be nsfw sometimes, so it’s 18+ in general): https://twitter.com/muddycult
I’ve added Reiji to the band lineup! He’s the drummer and leader of the band (though Ryu was originally), and also Ryu’s childhood best friend.
Someone in a discord server asked me to draw this for them, so I humoured them as a challenge to myself:
Ah, it’s done finally! Here’s the group photo for my fictional VK band, Devil’s Rain.
Lineup L to R: Haru (gu.), Ryu (vo.), Reiji (dr.), Touya (ba.), and Masato (gu.)!
Ryu’s the main character of the story, but… I think I really like Masato
the second guitarist looks even better
Really nice!!! I dig it. and I’m part of the band! (lolz) Love your art, very nice!
I just had this crazy idea where you could make this band real, like, you find people that plays music, and someone to write the lyrics or yourself or I dunno. Because this band would totally be badass haha
That would be awesome, haha. If I could do growls with a pitch-shifter or something that’d be neat, but alas… lol
I did want to try writing the lyrics to the 2 songs I made up for them at least, sometime.
Wow I’ve forgotten to update here. Here’s some I’ve finished recently:
Ai from Gulu gulu
Lay from Fatima for Halloween~
Have 3 WIPs right now, hopefully I finish them soon lol
Finished this this morning for Andy’s birthday (bit late but close enough? haha)
Seeing your digital art here I can tell you that everything looks so good, I really like the design and style. Also, I still remember your paint of Ai from gulu gulu which I first saw on your Twitter.
Oh, thank you!! Hopefully I can do a much better piece of him eventually too!
Updating with 2 art pieces I finished recently.
This one is my OC that I’m currently writing for a Vampire: the Masquerade rp. It got a like from the official V:tM instagram and also their Brand Marketing Manager on Twitter. Made me really happy.
I finished fanart of my honmei for his birthday, and he saw and liked it I can die happy now.
The hitomi one stays impressive.
