Color study by nyanzyme
Color study
Recently, I've used marker pens for shading instead of pencil. Now, I've gotten into color markers because I wanted to add more color.

But what if there's not enough color? Marker pens are best for non-gradient coloring, and a full set is very expensive (I don't plan on spending a lot on traditional media because I'm saving up for a Cintiq :happybounce:  ).

Fortunately, I am a chemist. And I know how to mix color. Here, I also used printer ink, mixed with precision with laboratory autopipettes (not shown), to load into brush pens and recreate the range of color available to printers.
With brush pens, I can make just the right amount of ink, discard any excess, refill, and reuse as I like.

This is a traditional media remake of this PSHS artwork done back in 2011 with new characters.

Once I get my tablet, I'll digitally color this and eliminate any errors.

Rite of Passage by nyanzyme
Rite of Passage
Back in 2012 I attended the first graduation as faculty. In our university, full-time faculty are required to attend two graduation ceremonies per year to be eligible for promotion. However, much of the time in graduation is devoted to reciting a long list of the graduates, which could take about 2 hours.

I decided to do a rework of this drawing as the original one (in traditional media) is incomplete. Some of my thesis students have graduated/are due to graduate soon, and I'm very proud of them as their mentor.

Be careful with the reagents! by nyanzyme
Be careful with the reagents!
As a faculty of Chemistry I have way too many encounters with people accidentally dropping test tubes. However, I handle college and not high school.

This work is dedicated to my high school chemistry, and to my classmates as well.

Please do not drop reagents as the mess is difficult to clean up, and in worst cases, people will have to evacuate the laboratory.

Summer girl by nyanzyme
Summer girl
I intended this illustration for the (unusually short) hot summer in the Philippines. Now it's almost the middle of the rainy season so this one's overdue, but I'm uploading it anyway.

Made with pencil, fine line pen, and marker pens for shading.
Also a practice for even more intercrossed hair strands.

I have been drawing digital art for about 8 years, and my drawing method has changed a little even when I had my graphics tablet 3 years ago. I can say my style has improved over the years. (I do not post around 80% of my works especially earlier ones). However, seeing the beautiful work of others brings a completely humbling perspective - there are always people doing something better, and there is only one thing to do:

Learn from them.

So now I'll be practicing new (anime/manga) coloring techniques. My old style involves minimal painting; most of the coloring is done via vectors, make the resolution almost limitless but are extremely time- and effort-intensive. Also, I see that I'm not using the most of my tablet. I want to change that.

Also, I have started uploading some of my works in my pixiv account. Pixiv: nyanzyme

So, to the people who have inspired me to draw something more beautiful: thank you. I might contact you especially if our geographical locations are close by.

Thank you very much!

Now I'm revising my old works. I realized there's so much potential in them but there are some errors that need to be corrected. Also I'm having more fun with marker pens than what I expect haha.

Anyway, I shall be posting more works soon.

Thanks for the greet and have a great time as always!
