Akatsuki Takes a Break by wbd Akatsuki Takes a Break by wbd
Even super skilled level 90+ Assassins need to rest and have an ice pop every now and then.

Art Notes:

I've been trying to imitate screencaps lately, and this is my latest attempt. I want to make a picture that looks like a screencap from an anime, and this time it's a pic of Akatsuki from "Log Horizon". I made this in Manga Studio 5.

I used this picture as the base for my "fake anime screencap" tutorial:

Shizuka Hanekura is 20 years old. She's just a bit short.

Thank-you! Making fake screencaps is a lot of fun. I still have a lot to learn, but every bit of progress is good.

Now it does look anime-y! Good job! You also improved with that lineart thing I told you, it doesn't look "messy" anymore

Thanks! I should try to be cleaner with my lineart in all my pics, I think.

Ugh, my teeth hurt looking at that. They 're super sensitive to cold, so holding a Popsicle in my mouth would hurt a lot.

That's too bad- have you tried brushing with a sensitive teeth toothpaste?

:iconcoredumperror:
coredumperror Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014
No, i hadn't heard of any such toothpaste. I'll have to look into that the next time I buy new stuff!

I use Sensodyne, but there are other good brands that use a different formulation. For me, it's good enough, but I know some other people who find the Colgate sensitive pro relief better for them.

Another excellent example!  Looks just like classic hand-painted cell animation!  :-)

Thanks! I think I have further to go to emulate true hand drawn/colored cels, but so far, so good!

Some assassins would rather unwind with something tastier than the blood of their victims.

Great work, by the way! If you placed this on an image board someplace and said "check out this screencap," you might fool some people. :3

Akatsuki is a nicer sort of assassin, I suppose...

Thanks! I'm feeling more confident about this technique. I have further to go, but so far it's been a good learning experience, especially about backgrounds.

Well I thought the last couple nailed the look, but I was wrong. This one is better!

MMMMmmm, grape ice pop sounds good.

Thanks! I think it's getting close enough that I'm happy with the look. It's been a useful exercise and has taught me a lot, so that's another good point.
