My characters

On the internet I'm usually known as Yuichi.

The following images are my most recent character designs hahaha. The orange dude is called Clover-kun and the other is named Skull-san (both male). I've always enjoyed drawing manga but in the past, art teachers disliked my work and giving me comments about not creating my original style etc. They thought my work was too specific on anime and I should try other methods of drawing such as paint splats, pottery, CHARCOAL. The sound of paints scares me... I never liked messy mediums that's why I prefer to use pencil and pen to avoid any dirt. Up until Foundation course, they wanted me to use other mediums and working on bigger scales to explore different ideas. When I do that, everything I produce looks 'CRAP'. My Fine Art teacher thought I should leave my comfort zone...

I did consider about creating something different which has more potential than just drawing manga. That's how I took the interest of looking into character design.. there's other character designs before Clover-kun and Skull-san but these two are my current favourites. XD

After creating characters I get the urge to make a comic strip about them..
