I did a countdown to Free! - Eternal Summer - anime’s airing.Was practicing semi-realism and speedpainting.It’s visible which ones took more time than the others.These are the textless and backgroundless one,except for Haru,as i did it on the same layer,also failed at doing speedpaint for Sosuke as i got artblock excitement on the final day.Threw in a Rei without glasses.
Didn’t use any references for the faces(i did use mine though),but i tried making each ones different,hope they do ^^; Experimented a lot,so they all varied depending on how comfortable i was that day…
I usually follow the japanese way of putting surname then first name,but on the ones that had the text i kind of mix that up ^^;
I’m going to refer Gou as Go now,it’s the same,but i’ll use the japanese romaji instead,so Go.
About Free!ES ep 1 feelings.Kyoani fed the fans their deepest fantasies…thank you,thank you.Adding to that my most fav. manga artist Miwa Shirow-sensei drew Rin.Like yep,a lot of people(fans) got drown that day,or flooded by the people’s(fans) feels.
Also,i’ll do proper fanarts someday.
