My fanart blog
This is how I draw Asian eyes. I couldn’t upload a tutorial last time because my tablet had died, but now I can show you how easy it is. Compared to Western eyes, the muscles holding up the eyelid are seated lower to the orbit, leading to a single fold of skin (ie the epicanthal fold). It has (1) a single creased eyelid, vs a double creased eyelid in western eyes, and (2) partially obscures the inner corner of the eyelid. Usually when I’m drawing I start with “western” eyes and then just bring the flap of skin down until it looks asian-y, lol. Hope this helps, anon! :D
Anonymous asked: I was trying a semi-realistic attempt at Madara after you gave me the advice on how you made Obito look Asian, and all I have to say is: This is actually kind of hard, and as a result I have left my attempt unfinished. I enjoyed seeing your interpretation of Madara though. He's very handsome.
Aww, don’t give up!! I’ll post a quickie tutorial - it’s very easy once you know the anatomy :)
Anonymous asked: I am not surprised you can draw in a realistic style because of the fact that your fan comics have good anatomy. Do you take art classes?
I took anatomy before and I had to memorize a lot of muscle insertions etc, so it really helps with drawing :) I’ve never actually taken art classes though!
Anonymous asked: Are you ever going to do any non-genderbent fanart?
If the mood strikes :) I just need the right idea and composition is all XD
Anonymous asked: Thank you for answering my question! I have to say I really enjoyed your doujinshi. What I liked most about it is how well you fleshed out Madara. You've made him sympathetic and gave him valid reasons for wanting to leave the village ("instead of the Uchiha versus the Senju, it's the Hidden Cloud versus the Hidden Leaf"). I do wonder how you would have changed this if you kept Hashirama as a man but I suppose that's what canon is for =) I really enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing!
Thank you so much, anon! :D I tried really hard to keep everyone in-character, even though Hashi is a genderbend, so I’m glad you liked this! Madara’s reasoning is my own personal head canon of why he left (re: it’s the same thing, just on a larger scale), so I’m glad this worked well for you :) :) Thank you again! XD
