in life drawing classes we had to choose a section of our model and draw EVERYTHING with contour lines, like in Henry Moore’s drawings of elephant skulls and stuff and it was p cool, i chose to draw a lady’s belly, i like working w/ lines
i doodled this in a coffee shop after work ms toriumi is my favourite character in the whole franchise i lied when i said saori was, sorry
tasty is the best adjective i’ve recieved about my art, thank u
ive always wanted to do one of these - especially for my OC Veronika Zotkin. Since she’s about one of the few characters i’ve made that I havent put a section of myself into and was made for that purpose only. She was made inspired by all the badass characters i rly like from tv and games.
Veronika was first made in 2010, my teacher assigned us to create a character we usually wouldnt make/be comfortable to draw, so I chose a cyborg. Since I was pretty big on the Metroid Prime series (i could only afford prime/borrowed one game from a friend) her suit was mostly inspired by Samus’ suit. But over the years until now I’ve developed her little by little.
After rewatching Ghost in the Shell series after a lot of years, I wanted to put a few assets Major Kusanagi had - such as her strong personality, leadership and her hair (i thought it looked rly pretty). Also in the first movie, Kusanagi had broad shoulders and so much muscle without her armour on - which I never really see (especially in japanese animation) which made me wanna interpret that into Veronika’s design ((and also a few other characters I’ve made, if you’ve noticed))
It’s not really as developed after I watched Tarantino’s ‘Inglourious Basterds’ it’s seeing Shosanna just gives me strong motivation to draw Veronika. I guess it’s her nice looking hair and her attitude towards those around her ?? idk, I havent figured it out yet.
I had a lot of fun creating and developing Veronika, though. I’m still trying to figure out about her cybernetic parts. Like I dont know if I want it to be visually obvious, or if it’s like Major Kusanagi cybernetic body, where it’s all hidden under artificial skin. Either way, it’ll all be figured out some time in the future.
top one is a drawing of a drawing but a little different because i cant draw people putting on makeup idk who it is i just wanted to practice

this was rly weird to draw
