Waking up #1

I wanted to draw some of my favourite characters and when/how they get up in the morning. I thought of things beginning with 9:00 and then backwards to 5:00 AM, let's see how many of them I'm able to finish.

I imagine Reno's nights can get very very long and on some mornings he just wakes up all bruised and bloody and he can hardly remember what happened.

Newt probably didn't sleep at all and worked on some freaky shit all night. But he might get his first coffee for breakfast at 8:30 and starts a new working day.

Hello, I'm alive.
I'm trying really hard to draw a bit more but I'm unable to find a good work/life-balance. It's mostly work + complete exhaustion + frustration. Buuuut I got myself a new tablet, a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, and it's quite cool to draw on it because it's got a pressure sensitive pen and there are some good painting apps. Maybe I'll draw or at least sketch a few more times from now on.
This pic was entirely drawn on the Samsung tablet.

Kakao 01 & 02

It's been months, maybe years, since I've drawn something on actual paper. Last week I really had the urge to draw ATC (ACEO?) cards, tho. In the German art community "Kakaokarten" is the commonly used term for these cards, I'm not quite sure if ATC/ACEO is the same thing, so I'll just stick with Kakao cards.
Anyway, the idea of them is to draw small (8,9cm x 6,4cm / 3,5" x 2,5") cards, usually with traditional tools (pencil, watercolour, copics, whatever) on thick paper (it's supposed to feel like a card, not just a piece of paper) ... well, and then you trade them with other artists. You send the cards to them via mail. What you draw usually depends on what the other person likes. Or, if you have any cards left you've drawn before, you can simply offer these. 

I did one with Bulma and Vegeta because their affection in Dragon Ball Super makes me so happy. And one with Piers and Newfoundlander!Chris because ... yeah. Both are done with watercolour on 300g/m² aquarell paper.
These cards are not available for trade anymore. But if you draw Kakao cards too and want to trade with me in the future, please use the message form here on this blog or write me on kakao-karten.de. ♥ It would be awesome if you live somewhere in Europe because sending them to other parts of the world might be too risky. :(

Trunks and Mai

Little Mai crushing on Future Trunks in Dragon Ball Super is the cutest thing I've seen in a long time. When I was younger I used to ship Future Trunks x Gohan but Mai is so adorable, help. I might start to ship them. And I totally understand her, Future Trunks was one of my first anime crushes too. /D" The fact that he's still so strong even though he had to endure so much terror, loss and pain makes him very attractive. And normal kid!Trunks will be very different when he's an adult because he's living a life of luxury and peace.
Anyway, it's a bit funny that, when Future Trunks shows up again in Dragon Ball Super, no one even tries to explain what the heck is going on. I mean, in the manga it's pretty clear how confused kid!Trunks is and everyone is like: "Yeah, well. It's normal to meet your future self from another dimension, no need to talk about it." I'm aware that Vegeta wouldn't care much, but at least Bulma could have said something.

"Don't you realize how annoying you are?"

I rewatched Dragon Ball Z episode 124 recently, because it's probably the one with the most romantic content about Vegeta/Bulma in the whole anime. However, 95% of the episode is Vegeta telling Bulma that she's getting on his nerves, that she's extremely annoying and that she's in his way (while he's lying on the flow, bleeding, unable to move). And yeah. That's the most romantic episode about this ship. *-*"
Anyway, my heart melted when he told Beerus not to touch HIS Bulma in the Dragon Ball Super manga, which I'm currently reading.
