Saturday Sketches: Week 7

Hopefully, everyone will be able to tell who this is. After all, it’s got to be one of the most iconic scenes in the series and possibly the most memorable in anime…

What did you draw this week? That’s quite the opening statement! I’m not sure if it is the most memorable, but surely, everyone should know this scene. It’s over the top in the most incredible way and just a hell of a lot of fun.

This sketch is from my favourite anime and it’s also my favourite character. Got it yet? Of course you have, it’s Saeko Busujima standing on top of the Humvee as they rush to rescue Komuro.

There’s a lot going on in this picture with her apron and hair flapping in the wind. It makes for a fairly dynamic picture, so I just hope I’ve done it justice.

This was another sketch in the larger A3 pad, so again I was able to get a little more detail in, which is essential with the apron, otherwise it would just be a big blank blob.

I’m pretty happy with it, although the head isn’t quite to the same scale as the body. Maybe, I’m just trying to be too perfect as it is Saeko. I’m sure I’ll find another excuse to draw her again, so it’s a good start for now.

Want to see me draw someone or something (I’m prepared to draw mecha or monsters too) then put in the comments and I’ll see what I can do.

The Promised Neverland (Episode 6)

Who’s behind the door? That’s all we want to know. Is it Mother or Sister Krone, maybe it’s Ray or Norman. Damn it! Who is it?

What did you watch? I’m really enjoying this series. The tone is dark and sinister, but slow and tense. Much like these openings of my reviews. I know you’re here to see what I thought of the episode, but I keep you waiting for a couple of paragraphs, because of the spoilers.

In all honestly, I don’t entirely trust anything we’ve seen or heard so far, so who knows what’s going on and what’s a spoiler or a red herring. Anyhow, that should put us in the clear, so let’s get on with it.

What happened? Last week’s episode left us with a nail-biting final moment and thankfully we picked up exactly where we left off. Don and Gilda had gone on an ill-advised exploration into Mother’s office and found the secret door. Then as they stood and stared like a couple of rabbits caught in the headlights, the office door slowly crept open.

That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime – Go Fourth (Episodes 13-16)

If he’s going to unite the Forest of Jura, Rimuru will need to defeat the orc-lord and his army of two-hundred thousand orcs. Even for someone as powerful as Rimuru, this might not be easy!

What’s happened since last time? When we left off at the end of episode twelve, Gabiru had overthrown his father to become the leader of the lizardmen, only to lead them into dire circumstances against the orc army.

Rimuru watches from the skies as the goblin riders save the lizardmen. Then the kaijin attack, further decimating the orc army. Finally, a majin appears and starts shooting off his mouth only for the orc-lord to eat him and become a demon-lord.

Finally, Rimuru steps in and takes care of business once and for all. Now, to unite the monsters of the Forest of Jura and relax. Well, until the dwarf king shows up and demands to test Rimuru. Satisfied with what he finds, he offers Rimuru an alliance between their nations, forcing Rimuru to come up with a name on the spot…

One Piece (Season Eleven)

The Straw-hat pirates have fought their way to the halfway point of the Grand Line, but crossing the Red Line could be their toughest challenge yet!

What did you watch and why? I’ve now watched four-hundred and seven episodes of One Piece and I can’t believe that it just keeps getting better and better. Sure, there have been some slower points, but lately, it’s been insane. I need to work out how it can still be so engaging after so long.

What’s it about? Having survived Thriller Bark, the Straw-hat pirates continue on their voyage along the Grand Line. Fish-man island is their next stop, but they don’t have any idea how they’re going to get there as it’s at the bottom of the sea!
