Another pencil drawing pencil.. 😀
It’s not comepletely finish, as I can not find my kneedable eraser. Otherwise I could have touched it up and posted it here yesterday and on deviantart too.
The idea was to practice some real manga style, some different materials and the use of mechanical pencils. I really loved that manga so it’s a quick choice. I removed the air gear logo and all to get a better feel of Simca. My god I loved drawing latex and that collar
This song just kept playing in my head while drawing: [link]
Medium: Mechanical pencil
Paper: normal A4 drawing paper
Time: Now and then a bit for the last few months
Subject: Simca the Swallow from the Air Gear manga by Ito “Oh Great” Ōgure.
Reference: the cover art of the 23rd chapter ([link])
I also recommend this manga and anime. I really enjoyed it, not just the more unusual action with those air trecks (kinda like inline skates) but the story as well. Cute and funny moments in between the battles make a good contrast so you don’t get bored and it creates more depth in the characters..
Story: (source wikipedia)
A new fad by the name of ‘Air Treks’ (a futuristic evolution of aggressive skating) has swept the nation’s youth and all over gangs are being formed that compete in various events using their A-T’s. Ikki is a middle-school boy who is the toughest street-fighting punk on the east side of town, on top of that he lives with 4 gorgeous sisters that took him in when he was a kid. But what Ikki doesn’t know is that the girls are part of one of the most infamous A-T gangs, ‘Sleeping Forest’. It doesn’t take long before Ikki finds out about the world of Air Trecks and is propelled into a fate he had not foreseen.
It’s been a fun projects, but I’m getting tired of anime and manga fanart. Time for something different..
