Duo from Gundam Wing.
Surely nobody thought we would get through a fanart challenge without at least one picture of
my first love my favourite Gundam pilot. Him and his stupid trousers.
This is also where I’m going to stop doing these daily drawing challenges. I got a stern talking-to* from Sammy about this not being the best use of my time, and she is completely right. (I’ve already missed about… seven of my self-imposed deadlines this year.) Nobody wants to hear me whine about not getting my portfolios done three years in a row! Perhaps I can pick these up again when my other projects are finished.
* ‘a stern talking-to’ here meaning ‘some gently worded advice’

Link from Legend of Zelda… um… Twilight Princess? It’s not really the right face but that is where I referenced his clothes from. I just wanted to draw adult Link at some point this month!

Antimony Carver from Gunnerkrigg Court.
I originally coloured her with markers, because those were an expensive present and I really want to learn how to use them properly. However my colour choice is limited and I wasn’t totally happy with it, so I also faffed around with it on Photoshop and made two other versions with less colour.

Toph, from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
I quite like this shading all in one colour lark, I may do some more of these.

Haruka Nanase from Free!
I don’t know if he’s my favourite (because MAKOTO) but I really like Haru a lot.
There should be shading on his skin as well, but the marker did not survive the leveling process. And that’s why you shouldn’t use colour on cream paper, children.

More Inuyasha! I don’t think these two are ever referred to by name, but they’re the only surviving members of Koga’s wolf demon clan. They turn up late to every scene because Koga has super-speed and doesn’t seem to fully grasp that they don’t.
EDIT: I have been informed by helpful tumblr denizen Miyori999 that their names are Ginta and Hakaku!

Kiki (and Jiji) from Kiki’s Delivery Service.
I read that the original book is really different to the Studio Ghibli film and the author was very upset with the changes to the story. I really want to find a copy of the book so I can see what it’s like!
