More basic tone practice before I begin drawing my romantic comedy sketch comic, SweetSpice! Which already has 31 fans on SmackJeeves, and there aren’t even any pages up yet! <:'D Anyway, I really want to start soon, so I'm experimenting with different styles. This one in particular is for Last*Days, 1 of the 4 stories I'll be drawing.

Back when I started Hotarugari, I was also into making my own plush animals, and drew up this design for a Hotaru plush doll. But ugh, I can’t sew. So I looked up some manufacturers who specialize in this stuff. They were all way out of my price range, and had a minimum purchase of 250 dolls! So, sadly, Hotaru’s plush was never made. But I still had fun daydreaming about it, and maybe one day I will make a plush of one of my characters. Although if I’m going to make a plush anything, it’s going to be a tanuki! They’re so much cuter.

Doodle of Hisaki, the hot and arrogant, and his mimicking little brother, Akio, side characters from Hotarugari. These guys don’t appear until the very last chapter of the comic, and only to cause trouble. It’s a bummer I wasn’t able to include them more in the story, since they’re hilarious and I love drawing them. They’re the main bullies in Hotaru’s life that are constantly reminding him of how much he sucks, (although it’s only Hisaki who really enjoys it, since Akio is just following his brother’s example,) but they’re also the closest people Hotaru has in his life besides Yumi. So sad. XD

And here’s their initial designs I did some time ago. Oh! And thank you so much for helping to give this blog over 5000 views!

Rough plot of Yumi’s turnaround sheet. I usually include character turnarounds on the character modelsheets too, just to give the viewer a better understanding of the form and shape of the character.

Here’s a segment of script from Hotarugari: Chapter Two. If you compare it to the actual pages, 30 and 31, you can see I adlib a lot; rearranging panels, rewording dialogue, etc. Heck, sometimes I don’t bother to write in page or panel numbers, or I’ll draw extra material I didn’t write down. For me, the script is more of a guidline. What you do is up to you!

Yumi, from my original webcomic, Hotarugari. Having spent a month away from it, I forgot how to draw her! I need more practice. I’ll try to have the next page up by tomorrow. Tomorrow is my birthday, so I’ll eat some sweets while I’m at it, too.

Working on the style and format for SweetSpice! Screentoning is something I’ve never done before, so here’s a few of my experiments. There were a lot of toning programs available, but I found Photoshop actually gave me more of the look I was trying to achieve. Still undecided, though. ^^;

Remember I said I’d have a shoujo webcomic coming out in 2012? This is it! SweetSpice!It’s a light and fluffy romantic comedy sketch-comic series. Not sure when I’ll be able to update it. XD Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

More of Kana and Oni! Random little comic as I get to know these characters better. Really should be working on other things, but drawing them is fun.

Here’s a look at the stages a Hotaugari comic page goes through from start to finish! 😀


Naoki the tanuki from my webcomic, Hotarugari. I forgot how cute he was!


And Naoki in human form. He’ll be on the cover of the second chapter!
