It’s time for another bento sketch book!

Bento #46:  Totoro with cherry blossoms

The drawing wasn’t completely finished, but I like how this bento came out. I had a hard time filling the space in the middle part of bento, but it worked out fine in the end. Totoro inari-zushi was fun to make too.

Bento #47: Ano-niku bento

As you can see, I only finished the half of the sketch, I was too lazy to draw them. 😛 But instead, I wrote down a list of what I was going to make “ano-niku” with.

Bento #48: : Laputa robot with cherry blossom

Originally, I was going to put him lying straight in the bento box, but I realized that he was too long and I’d have to make him really small… So I changed to the angle of his body so his body would be the same size as the inari. I didn’t draw too many details for this one, but I did a detailed drawing of the fox-squirrel as reference on a different piece of paper.

Bento #49: Patapon

For this bento, I only drew one Patapon. I was going to make a more complicated monster, so I drew it, but I ended up making the easier monster. I drew a round shaped tree from the game in the sketch, but after putting Patapons, I ended up making trees with snowpeas.

Bento #50: Prinny
I didn’t trace it, but I basically copied the cover design of the Prinny game for this sketch. I drew many characters for this bento in the sketch, but I couldn’t even make the half of them. I really wanted to make the tomato head worm though.

We still had tons of leftovers from Cracker Barrel, so no need to make bento. =/
Instead, here are some sketches!

Bento #41: Ryuk from Death Note

I mostly focused on Ryuk’s face, so not much is going on around him. As I mentioned, I did draw Shido and Rem in the background first, but erased them later. I usually don’t erase anything from my sketchbook even if I didn’t have the time to make it. But this time, it was too distracting, and I couldn’t draw Ryuk’s wings with them in the background.

Bento #42: Totoro Parade

Just like any other Totoro bento, this drawing was done in less than 5 minutes. I love drawing Totoro. It just makes me smile. 🙂 But I did look up for the logo for Studio Ghibli which appears in the beginning of every Studio Ghibli film as a reference. (The line drawing of Totoro in profile, with chibi-Totoro on his head)

Bento #43: Castle Crashers

This simple sketches of bunch of square heads in line took FOREVER to draw. I just couldn’t come up with a good composition for this, so I ended up making just the heads. I should’ve realized that the hole punch was much smaller than the eyes I drew for Castle Crashers. Then I wouldn’t have made the head so big, and the eyes would’ve been the perfect size. =/ And as you can see in the drawing, I was going to put bunch of animal orbs in this bento, but I was obviously delusional to plan such a thing. So instead of spending 3 more hours to make the animal orbs for this bento, I decided to make a bento just with animal orbs.

Bento #44: Animal Orbs

Whoops, seems like I didn’t paste the animal orb cutouts on this page… I’ll update the picture of my drawing later.

Bento #45: Pink Castle Crasher with Tom Fulp

I drew this Pink Castle Crasher after watching the video of someone playing the game, “Castle Crashing, the Beard.” Because I suck at the game and I kept dying before I got to Pink Castle Crasher. It turns out the most common Pink Castle Crasher doesn’t have a ” ❤ ” on his/her head. He/She’s just like a regular Castle Crasher, in pink, with ❤ on his/her chest. But I like my Pink Castle Crasher with a ” ❤ .”

It was raining all weekend (except for the couples of hours of sun peeking through the clouds on Saturday)
I stayed home, cleaned the house, and worked on a new project. I’ll post a picture of it when it’s done. 🙂
So in short, no how-to today, and I’ll post some pages from my sketch book.

Bento #32: Where the wild things are (left side)

It took me forever to do this sketch… This wasn’t an original composition or anything. I tried to copy the existing drawing, and it still took a really long time. On top of that, I drew the wild things waaay too big. There were too many detailed parts I had to use seaweed for, so I had to draw their face on a separate paper to use it to cut seaweed.

Bento #32: Where the wild things are (right side)

Bento #33: Calvin & Hobbes

This one also took me a really long time to draw. I just couldn’t make Calivn & Hobbes look like them at all. The style is very unique and hard to copy, and I think also it was because their faces were facing to the right. (usually, it’s easier to draw a face facing to the left if you’re right handed) I should’ve done something on the croquette. (the bottom “ground” part)

Bento #34: Battlestar Galactica

Not too much going on in this drawing. I just had to simplify the Cylon head, to mold rice and cut the lines from seaweed. I didn’t plan anything special to fill the gap between food, thus the broccoli forest. T_T I regret being so lazy, but I especially liked how Cylon head came out. I should’ve also tried to make the corners look better.

Bento #35: Tingle

The drawing looks pretty scary now… Tingle standing with bunch of heads floating around him. I just didn’t think I could make a body for each Tingle, but I had to make sure that I had the face of each Tingle drawn for reference. I also drew the details on his belt and clock. The flowers were from his game, but I didn’t have the time to do it.
