Yosuke Sasaki by TheDeedleDee Yosuke Sasaki by TheDeedleDee
So shortly after I finished Etsu and her depressing story of depressingness :iconhetherly92: demanded I design another YGO character to go with her about 3 weeks ago. I've been working on creating Yosuke off and on ever since.

I used this as an opportunity to try and do something different for a change and attempted to draw a heavier body type. Its a lot harder than I thought it would be. I had to restart about 5 times before I could get something halfway decent, and I STILL don't think it looks right @_@ It didn't help me at all being unable to find helpful stock. I wasted a whole week just looking for some and only started after giving up the search TT^TT

I won't say much about him here, his personality should be quite evident. But I will say he's the rare YGO oc who does NOT play the duel monsters card games, and if he tried he'd stink at it without help.

(also this may go into scraps later if i decide to work on it more

and credit for the awesome shirt goes to :iconhetherly92: cause without her idea it would have been a crappy horizontal stripe.

and i got lazy on the hands... and just didn't really draw them :iconawesomefaceplz: )

I like this character a lot. :) There should be more body types like this in the world, so I applaud you for going out of the norm!

:iconthumbsupplz:




Although his name makes me instantly think of my favourite character from Persona4 ><;!

yays! i'm glad you like him. I always try to do something out of the norm when i make characters. Usually its not a physical trait, so I'm glad I did it this time. (though his hair is totally gonna get a redesign when I have time for it)


gotta love random coincidences! <_< lmao next time I go to name a character I'll go 'AQUA! name all your favorite characters from everything!' so we can avoid that problem :nod: :rofl:

i like the change of the body type and its a great exercise to draw something new :3 i guess the only thing that throws me off is his hair style and the shape of his face. when i look at it, it looks like his got this really curvy head about him o_o

Yeah I'm kinda glad I tried something different, no matter how many times I had to redraw this and messed up the face XD. I suppose its just something I need more practice with.

i do hate his hair though, you're 100% right about it. it messed up everything. -_- i've been debating redesigning just that. because when i draw it facing left it looks fine. I purposely drew it facing right to see how it would play cause I always draw characters facing to the left.... and it just doesn't work. :iconfacepalm:

aw im sorry >< i wasnt trying to nit pick...

were you trying to give him something like a mop top? like a shaggy kinda look where it goes anywhere or just lays there? cause i can see that kind of working for his face. i dont have a lot of experience with drawing a fuller face, but maybe looking up a few pictures of people to get a better feel for what youre trying to go for? i think what you have so far really works and looks good though :3

lmao don't feel bad. you weren't being nit picky, you were constructive. tis cool I like to hear it. I hope I wasn't coming off as defensive. I didn't mean to ^^;

I was just trying to go for like 'typical crazy anime hair' that wasn't short and was more feathered. I totally failed XD. At first I thought it wouldn't matter cause he's a YGO oc, a series notorious for insane hair, but the more i worked on it the more i started hating the hair.

I'll probably do the picture thing, its a good suggestion. though When i was drawing him i just got frustrated cause it is impossible to find stock of heavier people ._. (at least free stock anyway)

i would use google often if it didn't search through copyrighted images. if i plan to post something i always make sure its free stock. but i'll probably just use it for practice sketches cause i don't think i have much other choice XD
