Through Thick and Thin! | Izuminokami Kanesada

Hey everyone!

Three days ago I started working on a drawing to use as my icon across different platforms since I thought my current profile picture felt a little outdated and doesn’t represent my current skillset very well. In the end, I settled for Izuminokami Kanesada from Touken Ranbu 🙂 Check it out ~

These few days have been quite hectic! Been hard at work trying to figure out how far I’m going to take daenoki, and reviving my abandoned social media accounts.

Working on more art so I can post regularly, interacting with others and stuff takes up a lot of energy (at least mentally, for me). But for some reason, it’s fun? It’s only been a few days yet I’ve learned so many things and met different people!

Enough with the off-topic rambling, three days ago I started working on a drawing to use as my icon across different platforms since I thought my current profile picture (this one) felt a little outdated and doesn’t represent my current skillset well.

The very first sketch! This is why you should use references, kid (lol)

In the end, I settled for Izuminokami Kanesada from Touken Ranbu and scrapped the older artwork I drew of him on my previous post (over here).

The software I’m using, and will most likely continue to, is MediBang Paint Pro. It’s a great software with plentiful brushes, has tons of great features, and it comes at absolutely no cost 🙂

I switched to a more painterly style with no lines unlike my older drawings, since that was the style I’ve always wanted to achieve. However, the “semi-realistic” look in my traditional works always seems to evaporate into thin air whenever I start playing with my tablet haha. Better work on that! 😉

I figure these little bumps means I’m going the right way, and that there must be an underlying reason as to why they happen. Not to be cliche (even though that can’t be helped), I strongly believe that they’re trying to teach me something so I can change for the better. 🙂

Here’s to a better future!
