FFX Yuna - 1980s Style by CrystalClair
FFX Yuna - 1980s Style
It's supposed to be a perm but it looks a bit like an Afro.

So this is a part of a short series where I draw/paint FFX characters (Yuna, Rikku and if I'm ambitious, Tidus) as if they were designed in the '80s.

Curly/permed hair is hard, especially if you want to get that puffy look. Sometimes you have to treat the hair as a single mass though if you're not careful, you'll get the Afro effect.

Also, the series is being recorded just so you can see the processes I go through.

60s Inspired Girl
No kidding. Right after finishing the goth picture, I decided to do a picture and work on defining the hair and the outfit...

Of course I chose one of the most wrinkle-free outfits on a picture that I WANTED TO DRAW WRINKLES ON
Also, this picture gives me a 90s anime vibe

Goth Girl
Now and then I do a test where I put my all into one area. This picture was about that lineart, though centering around the face and the hair.

I feel like I'm lacking something.

edit: forgot to flip the image horizontally. The original was her facing left.
A reason for my lack of sumissions lately is due to me trying to focus strictly on one art piece at a time and these art pieces are rather large. I feel that if I just focus on one large art piece at a time and get it done in one go, I can succeed on other big things and get them done. I want to beat procrastination.

Before I started this 1-art-at-a-time thing, I had sketches in progress of Yuna, Rikku and Tidus from Final Fantasy X looking as if they were from a different decade
I will be finishing those sketches too.

Now I don't have Pokemon ORAS but Flannery's new design just looked so fun to draw, so I drew her.

A quick ~30 minute piece

I just want to become the best artist I can be and to be recognized for it. I also want to teach others what I've learned. I love learning about how the world works. I enjoy both visual and musical arts.

Operating System: Windows 7, 8

Laptop: Lenovo G710 17"
Desktop: Intel i7, Geforce Gtx 650, 16gb ram, blue-switch Razer mech keyboard
I want to produce an anime.

Moreso an ova sort of like what they did with Pokemon BW2 where I take some crucial parts of my Night Troupe story and make them into legit anime. I used to think it was absurd to attempt something so hard but I saw this guy on Youtube by the name of Klfiretears and he managed to make some cool stuff, albeit it looked tedious. However the edge he didn't have that I do have is that I know how to use 3d animation software which could enable me to rotoscope an animated body.

Man I'm crazy.

Can you do more Pokemon Anime Tutorials? :)
CrystalClair Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'll see what I can whip together. I had some lesson plan ideas.

That's good. :) I really miss your tutorials.

You should open up a group dedicated to helping people drawing Anime Characters from Pokemon. :)

I tried that once, but... then it was forgotten. :(
