Coming Soon: Drawing/Photoshop Tutorials on Soba Doodles/RealmLocke

I’ve been asked before about how I make some of my artwork, so I thought it’d be fun to create some tutorials on drawing, Photoshop, etc.  These tutorials are my opinions, based on how I draw. There are many different techniques and approaches to drawing and creating artwork, so some of my tips and tricks may not be your style. Nevertheless, I hope some might find these tutorials useful.

I plan to do tutorials on both anthro/furry and human characters, mainly in fantasy and modern settings. The first tutorial will be about the basics and some tricks that helped me when I first started drawing.

ALL of these Tutorials will be on my new page on Soba Doodles, RealmLocke Legends.

Can’t wait to get started, so stay tuned!

Howl-O-Ween Moonlight Merchant

A funny Halloween Short about a strange merchant that sells mystical/echanted items on Halloween Night.

HowloweenMerchant_NightShaded_FD_WM

Welcome to Moonlight Trinkets and Remedies! Jessica’s little shop for all your enchanted charms, potions, and other spell crafting needs.

Been down on your luck or can’t seem to find your muse? Jessica’s charms offer a wide variety of effects that bring good luck or inspiration. Need a new look? Her potions grant glamour effects (changes one’s appearance) ranging from simple changes to full body reconstruction.

Most of her charms and potions are temporary…well…except the more potent ones that only are sold full moon nights. The moon seems to change her magic’s effects, making it harder to undo any effects or transformations. But, she swears she hasn’t had any terrible outcomes from these Moonlight products…at least not that she’s aware of.

Howl-O…Halloween night is very particular for her store. It enhances magical properties of all her charms and potions (even more so if it’s a full moon night). It’s also the night she offers some psychic services (she has a real knack for Paw…err…Palm reading).

***** ,-,-, ^;..;^ ,-,-, *****
All customers must sign an agreement waver before using any of the charms or potions from the store.  All sales are final and non-refundable.  Customers may purchase a reversal remedy in the case of permanent effects of a potion (cure may take a week to go into effect).

She accepts copper, gold, and other valuables as trade, EXCEPT SILVER!!!

She’s HIGHLY allergic for some reason…ESPECIALLY on a FULL MOON NIGHT!
*******

I made this character a couple of years ago on Deviantart, and thought it be fun to share it here. The character herself I based off some of my previous werewolf drawings, and drew some inspiration from the strange fortune teller from Courage the Cowardly Dog (you know, the green fox dog with the offset different colored eyes who always says, “he’s the stupid one.” lol)

Cherry Blossom Breeze: OC Remake

A while back, I decided to redraw my site’s banner character, Sakura the Cherry Blossom Kitsune, and here’s what I came up with.

LEFT: “NEW” Cherry Blossom Breeze       RIGHT: “OLD” Sakura in Spring

The newer version has more details and new designs in the dress and fan. The colors are lighter in the newer one for a springlike like look. I really wanted this new version to look similar to her previous version, but with my current art style. Honestly, I love both designs. Which one do you like best? Along with the redraw, I also worked on her back story. Check it out!

Sakura the Kitsune’s Backstory: Cherry Blossom Breeze

cherryblossombreeze_WATERMARK

Cherry Blossom Breeze by anbumsw

A beautiful Kitsune named Sakura, dancing about a field of Cherry Blossoms. She’s a friendly spirit that tends to forests of her homeland. The Cherry Blossom forests provide harmony to her homeland, giving its travelers a place of peace and calm. One of Sakura’s duties is to keep the forest purified to preserve its harmony. Her dance cleanses the wilds, protecting them from a dark infestation; a disease of malice and hatred. If this is left unchecked or purified, this disease will consume everything, leaving nothing but death and decay. Luckily, Sakura has had many years of practice warding off this evil, and she always has her sisters nearby to help as well. Travelers of the realm say that meeting this Kitsune is a sign of good fortune, for she blesses your journey. To receive her blessing, all one must do is bow in respect and offer a token of tribute. Nothing flashy like gold or trinkets. Food or Flowers work best with her. If she presents a cherry blossom, this is her token of her blessing; a good luck charm. This will ward off bad luck and evil on the journey ahead. **** Cherry Blossom Breeze was originally my instagram and my deviantart Character, Story, and Artwork by me, anbumsw

Keeper of the Fireflies

Keeper of the Fireflies, Hikari

This lovely kitsune, Hikari, summons fireflies and fairy lights by using fox fire. She serves as their sheppard, herding the twinkling lights throughout the night, and calling back before first light.

She’s a friendly spirit that roams the meadows and forests of her homeland, helping lost spirits and travelers find their way in the dark. She carries a staff with a lantern of fox fire, which flickers to summon fireflies. Her appearence at night from afar resembles a gaint firefly floating about the tall grass and trees. As she wonders around, she scatters twinkling lights into the night, leaving sparkling trails that act as guiding lights. Once dawn approaches, she twirls the lantern, calling the lights back, and she returns to her home among the spirits.

Though she’s a friendly spirit, shes a bit shy. If startled, she disappears into a flickering burst of fairy lights. She usually won’t allow travelers to approach her. If she senses they are lost or need help, she will appear before them.

She prefers to be polite and repectful, often greeting with a formal bow. If shown the same kindness and respect, she will lead the way with a path of sparkling lights that leads to towns and settlements.

In her homeland, it has become a tradition for travelers to leave her small gifts (usually flowers, small trinkets, and sweets) near decorative paper lanterns on the trail posts to thank her.

*****************

For this sketch, I used a combination of pencil and pen to create the line are, and shaded and added accent colors to it on my tablet. Her design is based off of a combination of colonial and eastern design, to give her more friendly/peaceful appearence. I originally planned her to be wearinf a traditional kimono like dress, but the colonial design seemed to fit the concept of this is wonderer. Her fox design is based off of a fennic fox/ long earred fox, giving her a cuter/friendlier appearence.

I might come back and fully color this once I get an idea as to what colors would look best with her design.

Fantasy Art: Spring Nymph Violet

Spring Nymph Violet

A friendly spirit of flowers and blooms, Violet the Nymph of Spring

Nymphs are spirits of nature. They often depicted as being beautiful maidens that tend to and craft nature in greek mythology. These spirits usually have various elements of nature in their design that match their environment (forest nymphs might resemble trees or greenry).

This nymph, Violet, is based off the elements of Spring. For her design, I combined greenry (leaves, vines, etc), flowers, deer, and wind chimes, and used various colors of spring.

Originally, I colored her with my chameleon markers, coloring her hair, antlers, and ears with natural colors (tans, browns, and fawn). This version looks alright, but I wanted the character to look more like she was a part of nature. So, I made some changes in photoshop.

Chameleon Marker coloring of Violet. Less flower colors and more natural colors.

For the digital coloring, I changed the colors to match spring violets. I also used a number of layers to add some photos of flowers I took into her design to match with theme of a nymph (a combination of tulips and violets). I used overlay layers to change the flowers colors and shading to match the lighting.

Overall, I had a lot of fun making this drawing, and I think it turned out looking very beautiful.

Lumi Lox: the Lantern Fox

Lumi Lox: the Lantern Fox

********************

The Lumi Lox is a small fox-like creature, about the size of a small corgi, that has glowing antenna, markings, and a torch tipped tail. In the Loxes’ homeworld, it’s dangerous to venture out into the night without an enchanted lightsource, for dangerous beasts and shadows have claimed the night as their hunting grounds. Enchanted light is the only thing that seems to ward these dangers away. Loxes use their glow to confuse or blind any predators with flashes or strobes of bright white. Once the predator has been imoboblized, Loxes will flee for a burrow or any form of tall brush to hide away until the danger has passed.

Their glow is not only for defense. It’s also a means of communicating the Loxes’ feelings and moods, depending on the glow’s color.

Loxes are considered very friendly and have a dog-like personality. They wag their tails when happy and even bark…sorta…more like a high pitch, “marf!” sound. Due to their personality, many travelers keep a Lox or two as pets for company and security during night travels.

Colors and Moods

  • Bright Blue = Passive or Curious
  • White = Fear
  • Red = Anger
  • Green = Disgust or Sick
  • Dark Blue = Sleeping
  • Pink = Romantic or In Love
  • Yellow = Uneasy

Eating and Hunting Habbits

Loxes are mostly carnivores, and will hunt smaller creatures like rodents and insects. Sometimes they will eat fruits or vegatation for nutrients such as berries or roots.

Loxes prefer to stalk and blind using a flash from their antennas and tail to catch prey.

Biology and Behaviors

Loxes are warm blooded mammels. They prefer warm climates with plenty of shade. Loxes also prefer to live in small packs for protection. Males are usually bigger than females and a darker blue coat of fur. Both genders will glow pink when in love.

Loxes mate for life. They remain affectinate and faithful to their mates. Females may litters of up to 5 pups. Both genders take part in raising thier young.

Loxes are mostly nocturnal, prefering to hunt at night. They tend to take short naps through at the daytime, only to take small breaks to forage for fruits and roots.

I originally posted the sketch of this creature on here and on my DeviantArt

For this character, it took roughly 20 or more layers on photoshop to color and add effects.

Winter at the Cafe

Originally posted this sketch on realmlock_anbumsw

An Artic Fox Girl enjoying a hot cup of coffee at her favorite cafe.

This was a fun sketch to make. Originally, the idea was going to be draw a scene of snow in the park, but I was growing tired of the cold weather. I decided to draw a coffee shop/cafe scene with a warm and cozy vibe.

For this sketch, I focused on creating a relaxing scene with the character sitting with her cup of coffee. To stick to a winter theme, I decided to have snow falling outside the window, and based the character’s design off an Artic Fox.

Overall, I really love how this sketch turned out.
