Ink work - Biro Pen - Hawk from Seven Deadly Sins
Seven Deadly Sins
The Seven Deadly sins is about a band of seven, fighting against the 10 Commandments. Despite all the action in this anime, it is also quite light-hearted and well-balanced. There is comedy, ecchi and it showcases the individual characters throughout the series.
What I find myself pondering on is why the seven are labelled with their respective sins. As the series progresses, the story unfolds for each character and it questions if they are truly sinful. The anime isn't finished yet so I have a lot of questions left unanswered and I'm keen on watching season five when it's next released!
Feature character - Hawk
Hawk is an irreplaceable character in the group and is the captain of the Order of scraps disposal. He is the pig that eats a lot of the left over scraps in the tavern that Meliodas (captain of the Seven deadly Sins) runs. Hawk's contribution is essential since Meliodas makes aesthetically pleasing but absolutely revolting meals.
Hawk is like my spirit anime. He loves food as much as I do and were both chubby. The only thing I probably won't do is eat disgusting food on the floor since I prefer quality food on a plate. It is no surprise that he was my chosen one.

There were tons of adorable shots I found of Hawk, but my favourite is Hawk wearing the sexy tavern uniform. The uniform is quite an interesting item since it has a lot of frills in contrast to Hawk's smooth skin. Also, It's a pig in a sexy outfit... that in it's own right is a winner.

I've freehand sketched with a pencil and used biro to cross-hatched my way in creating Hawk. To be honest, it is a very similar process to my previous posts. So, I've decided that starting next week, I will create a video or GIF of the process so you can see how my drawings evolve from start to finish.
I've also been trying out different types of Bic pens and bought the Bic Round Stic Grip. I find that it actually does well in creating dark tones, but it bleeds quite badly. You might be able to see some areas where the pen bled and I've tried to hide it as much as possible. So far, I've tried out the Bic Cristal Original, Bic Cristal Original fine and Bic Round Stic Grip. It's been a great learning and experimenting experience to use all these pens and I intend to practice more and use the pens to their advantages.
One thing I've noticed is that Hawk seems to have lost weight in my drawing. He is slimmer and taller in comparison to the reference drawing. He looks like he has been on a diet on this one!
For the next drawing, I'm jumping back to Studio Ghibli and drawing from the film Ponyo. This is one of my favourites from Studio Ghibli and I've seen the film around three times already.
