Fist of the Fire Dragon: Natsu

Inspired by the manga episode, “Fairy Tail”.

It is a Japanese manga series by Hiro Mashima. It has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Magazine since August 23, 2006 where it is still on-going.

While reading Chapter 218, page 5 to be exact, I’m greatly inspired by Natsu’s pose while fighting. Then I realized and made some sketch about this.

Here’s it is.

And my rough sketch…

I needed some model of his hand pose so I ask my twin brother to do that pose for me:

A work in progress. You can view this image in my deviant

Jinouga Process

Still so many things to do but manage to keep something to sketch. Having some breaks and free time to play PSP, I took some screenshots and sketch it. It’s Jinouga, Featured monster from the Monster Hunter 3rd in PSP.

  • Tools of trade: Paintool Sai and PS CS5 (for finishing touch)
  • Mood: Neutral
  • Diet: Coffee


Well, it’s not merely a tutorial, but sharing what my process/stage in doing this painting…


Close-up and brush settings. Experimenting on blending and dilution.


That’s all for now.And I’m going back to reality!
