TMM Dump 2 by Ai-Bee TMM Dump 2 by Ai-Bee
I didn't realize how GODDAMN big this would get until I was done. It used to be only half full for like the entirety of 09, then BAM I felt like spamming my sketchbook with them.

Sigh. OTL

So anyway. Um. IDK. I love how Cream/Candy turned out so I threw some color on them. @~@ Pen can be fun.
And yeah, if you were wondering, I settled on Olive for Aibi.
I shouldn't have another huge ass mowmow dump like this for a while, so you can all relax, if this isn't yer cup of tea. Enjoy the sketches anyway?

TMMAL, art, designs, characters (c) Me, just me.
Tokyo Mew Mew (c) Mia Ikumi + Reiko Yoshida

Got a TMM-related question? Read here.
Q: Can I use your designs/characters in my story?
A: No, do not use them without permission. I will find out if you do it behind my back. Lol.

Q: Can I trace or copy your art as a base, pixel or otherwise?
A: No, tracing and editing is considered theft without my permission.

Q: Will you help me create my Mew Mews or my Mew Story?
A: I'm sorry, but I really can't. I only do this fan-stuff over a scattered amount of free time. My apologies! .A.;

OMGEE I have a few questions that have been brewing in my mind for a while, I got reminded by this sketchdump lol

1. How the HECK do you doodle so well with marker and pen?! THAT'D BE ULTIMATE DISASTER FOR ME! Did you outline in pencil first? WHAT IS THIS SHITARIFIC VOODOO XD
2. How many times do you practice drawing a day? Then and now? What were/are your techniques to get better?
3. What did you do to study proportioning and how to draw the human body from many different angles and poses? Any tips for an eager 10th grade antelope? :D LOL

thank you so much!

Omg, you made me look at this old dump and now I'm all nostalgic!! How dare! :XD:
1. Well, it's a whole lot of gathering the nerves up, practicing, and continuing to try even after I've messed up... which is a lot btw. That's the nature of drawing with permanent stuff. I had a few I didn't scan on this same page that I screwed up real bad. I did do a looot of sketching with colored pencil/regular pencil before lining with pen sometimes to help me ease into it, but for those marker ones I just sorta went for it outta boredom so the anatomy is way off in places. It makes your strokes progressively more confident though so I highly recommend trying to get used to it! Try drawing with ballpoint pen... especially in various colors, oh the fun! 
2. If I'm out all day I may forget to, but I try to draw every day at least a little bit. In my 17-20s, I drew a lot but slower, my content has doubled because I've gradually gotten faster- but it feels about the same, like my output level just got higher by doing it often.
My techniques at the time were to just draw whatever I liked or could, trying to find comfort/familiarity in my work regardless of content or repetition. Chibis and headshots are popular at the time, but eventually I got bored and pushed the envelope! My practices of choice currently are style emulation, gesture studies, body/race diversity and fashion drawings. All these things test and expand different skills. Eventually I'd love to do backgrounds and storyboards, but I remind myself not to rush (and ruin my current funky flow by worrying about what I can't do) 8(
3. I asked Ty for help with anatomy because she loves it, so I got lucky there... :XD: However there are a LOT more wonderful resources out there now than when I was learning, so I recommend things like... pixel lovely (nude or clothed, and they have other practice tools), senshi-stock (sfw stock poses), this cool poser with great perspective help and I myself have a huge anatomy tag on tumblr for hording tooons of great reference stuff, try not to get lost or overwhelmed haha. Hopefully that'll give ya some fun stuff to soak up, I learn so much there haha.

I hope it helps~!

It just struck me! Mew Salt looks liek Tsukasa from Lucky star!! And now Mew Candy looks like Konata! Well I guess those design are quite popular

Ai-Bee Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They don't look like Konata or Tsukasa at all... what? xD Tsukasa is shy like Salt, I guess, but that's about it... I'm pretty sure I made these two up before I knew what lucky star was.

The other style of Cran, I didn't recognize her at first! I do enjoy Salt and Pepper in their gothic lolita style outfits, too. It's a pose that could be coloured and put in a nifty scene~ I <3 angry Candy.
