It’s Raining Men: Week Four of the 31 Days of Manuary

It’s Week Four of Amazing Mimi’s 31 Days of Manuary! This has been an interesting week for drawing. I have a single standout favorite this week, and I think it will probably be my favorite for the whole month. It’s just so cute!

This week in art

I did a few more tutorials this week, simply because I was running into character prompts that left me at a bit of a loss. That said, I found a few that were really fun. Overall, this month I’ve found that I enjoy drawing males more than I expected to. They are not as difficult as I had built them up to be in my head.

So let’s take a look back at the drawing from this week!

Manuary Day 11: Dwarf

Manuary

This little dwarf came out pretty cute! I was going for a bit of a stockier body, but I was more or less happy with him. The braided beard was definitely the hardest part of the whole drawing. I had to redo it a few times. I started out with his hair braided too, but it got so wonky that I ended up erasing and drawing in just long hair.

Manuary Day 12: Ranger

This one was another try at my elf. The one leg got turned kinda strange, but I like the way he came out. I think he was actually a little better before coloring, but that’s mostly because I’m still working on getting better with my markers.

Manuary Day 13: Robot

I know, I know, Alphonse Elric is not technically a robot. If you don’t know who Alphonse Elric is, go watch Full Metal Alchemist. Brotherhood. Right now. I’ll wait.

Okay, now you understand what I mean. But he IS an animated metal suit with a soul, which, depending on how you classify a robot, is pretty close. This drawing was done off a tutorial of course (I hate to say it but I am not that awesome on my own lol).

Manuary Day 14: Gargoyle

How cute is this little guy!? I had a good time drawing this one. The references I used were super cute, but I decided to go with a more prickly expression and claws on his little feet. Still cute though!

Manuary Day 15: Dragon/Lizard

012218

Dragons are hard. Dragon people are even harder. But I kinda like it. Very chibi with the giant head and little body. Drawing the snout was the most difficult part, but it came out better than the last time I tried to draw a snout. So, success.

Manuary Day 16: Bard

012318

Ahhhhhhhhhhh! This bard came out so much better than I expected. I was attempting to draw from reference but I had a bit of trouble with the instrument. It’s not awful, but I think its distortion has to do with my drawing surface. The top of our desk tilts a bit toward the back, so when I’m looking at certain drawings they look straight and even. At least until I pick them up. Oh well.

Manuary Day 17: Giant

012418

And now we come to my favorite drawing of the week. I know it’s a bit gory, but omg I laughed so hard when I drew it. This one was done with a tutorial for the giant. It can be found below:

But when I was working on the giant, the mister said I should put a chibi beside him to give some size perspective. I started out with the little mad chibi to the right. But then I started thinking…what’s she mad about? And the expression…the “oops” look in his eyes. I had to. I just had to.

Next Week?

Next week is the final week of Manuary. I’ll have the last seven drawings next Thursday, along with the new list for Lovey Dovey Month! But first we have a demon, ogre, cat man, alien, minotaur, mage and a tribal drawing coming up. Be sure to let me know if you are joining in and share your drawings on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with #Manuary2018.
