Tsumi Watenabe is throwing her headband in the ring. She's lived all over void, literally top to bottom, met people from all walks of life and hopes to give void city a new sense of community by helping the city help itself.

THE INCUBATOR / Re: Otakutaylor Incubator
« on: Nov 26, 2018, 01:52 PM »

hope that links right...

Thumbs for the first draft of the intro comic. Let me know if it reads ok and if anything needs revising!
Also, because I forgot to post it in the first part.

A shot of her with her skin layer removed. Note her hair is not invulnerable, grows back at a normal rate, and she gets SUPER PISSED when it gets burned/cut off. Not that she ends up in situations where it happens TOO often, but she has a collection of wigs just in case.

THE INCUBATOR / Otakutaylor Incubator
« on: Nov 19, 2018, 02:23 PM »


Figured I'd make an incubator for my next character after Tsumi's done, granted this was supposed to happen more than a year ago at this point. ^_^


Precious is a party girl and Voidstagram model. Spending most of her time enjoying herself at clubs and parties, and indulging her unique tastes. Living quite a high maintanence life, she's got no qualms cheating, stealing, or conning people out of their money and possessions to pay for it. Though they likely enjoyed the night before. She blows through her money way too fast though, and still has to work as a teller at a bank. While she lives a dangerous lifestyle, it only got worse when she developed Meta abilites.


Unknown to her for most of her life, Precious discovered a few years ago that she can eat anything. A power often called "matter muncher" She's developed a particular taste for precious metals, such as gold, silver, and platinum. Her motivations then grew to almost entirely focus on her appetite. She is not a glutton, as much as it would be easy for her, she's more of a gourmet. Having a nearly insatiable desire to taste rare or expensive metal objects. While primarily this constitutes gold jewelry, she also enjoys elaborate machinery such as watches, or complex electronic boards like those used to compute AI. As you can imagine, this is where most of the money she makes (steals) goes too.  Her Diet of metals however, has altered her body's physiology, making her into a being of living metals beneath her outermost skin layer. These changes have made her nigh indestructible; bullets, bats, or busses doing little more than tearing away her skin layer and pissing her off at the loss of the expensive makeup.



There's not a ton of story for her besides the setup so far. I've got ideas for her fellow immortal co-workers, and her equally self indulgent club friends, but for what the comics will probably be about, it's just fun sexy times or her conning voiders out of whatever she wants to get her lips around.

Day 31: Heart


And that's it!  Thank you again to everyone who cheered me on through this exercise~
This has been an incredible help to me, and something I certainly should have done earlier.
Oh, and If you ever need muscle/anatomy practice you can still drop it in the thread here! Though I'd recommend poking me on discord too, just in case. ^_^

Hopefully I'll see you all in this thread next year!

Day 30: Corrugator Supercilii


Muscle 31: The Heart
Of course I had to be cheesy on the last day.
I spent this whole month drawing what I love, learning about it, and somehow stuck with it every single day.
This has been an amazing experience for me, and I hope somehow it helps others as much as it's helped me.
Thank you to everyone who supported me through these exercises. (mostly on discord, which is why it's not in this thread btw)
So for tomorrow, just draw what your heart tells you.
(or an actual heart, if you really want too...)

Day 29: Soleus


Muscle 30: Corrugator supercilii  aka  the Angry Muscle  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corrugator_supercilii_muscle
Thanks again to Desi for the reccomendation!
This lil guy, hidden under your frontalis and obicularis muscle is responsible for pulling your eyebrows together when you're sad or pissed off.

Day 28: Teres Major


Muscle 29: Soleus aka Calves underbuddy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soleus_muscle
This guy hiding under the Achilles tendon I've been inadvertently drawing without realizing it was a different muscle since Calves day.

Day 27: Tensor Fasciae latae


Muscle 28: Teres Major  aka That's not the lats bro.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teres_major_muscle

The teres major, partly situated under the lats, can both show up on it's own, or push the lats farther out. Occasionally giving the lats a "double bump" in the armpit area.

Day 26: Serratus Anterior


Muscle 27: Tensor fasciae latae aka I had no idea there was a muscle there until gluteus maximus day. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tensor_fasciae_latae_muscle
This little guy attaches to a important tendon that runs from your hip and the top of your butt muscle down the outside of your thighs to your knee.
very rarely significantly seen, it is the farthest "out" muscle for your hips/butt area and important for side kicks and learning how the torso and legs connect.

Day 25: Brachialis


Muscle 26: Serratus Anterior aka the top of the zippers  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serratus_anterior_muscle
While they technically start on the back, they're only visible on the body towards the front in the small part between the lats and the obliques where they zip together.

Day 24: Biceps


Muscle 25: Brachialis aka Biceps best friend  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brachialis_muscle
Arms two days in a row, because the Brachialis is an important part of what makes biceps peak.
and yes, your arms have Biceps Brachii, Brachialis, and Brachioradialis all next to each other. Because that's how you name stuff...
Just be lucky we aren't going any deeper into the Biceps, they have a long and short head, and the long head is the shorter one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mO70v8F9VeQ - this dude does a great video series on workouts, but he draws the muscles on himself to show how they work. It's great for seeing where they're supposed to be and where they move when you flex.

Muscle 22: Adductor Magnus  (and Longus, and Brevis) Aka the thigh gap muscles.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adductor_magnus_muscle
This collection of muscles help pull your legs together. Like when you have to pee and hold it in.

Day 16: Tongue


Muscle 17: Extensor Digitorum  aka  the high five muscle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extensor_digitorum_muscle
This guy's job is pulling the tendons in your fingers to stretch them out, much like the extensor digitorum longus does in your legs.

Day 15: Bicep Femoris


Muscle 16: Tongue  aka not technically the strongest muscle in your body, but we like to think it is. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tongue
ok, so no, we're not going in depth on the tongue, it's STUPIDLY complicated to draw all the muscles inside and around the jaw. Just doing some practice on one of the most flexible muscles in the body to remember that there's a lot of little muscles in the face that while they might not get focused or really buff are useful for knowing how the face emotes.
(careful googling reference for this one, there's a lot of gross examples)

Day 13: Latissimus Dorsi


Muscle 14: Deltoid aka Shoulder Muscles https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deltoid_muscle
Finally we're on to the muscles that make Tsumi who she is. Those gigantically broad shoulders!
I've learned and re-learned and re-learned these muscles over and over, realizing each time there's more to the shapes than I had thought before.
