My name is Makini90, but you can also call me Maki for short lol. I am a Graphic Designer/Illustrator. This page is where I showcase my love and passion for drawing and vector illustration as well as what inspires me and what pushes me to reach higher in not only my work, but in myself. I hope my work achieves in inspiring others in the same way that I am inspired.

Please take the time to check out my gallery of work. Feedback and Critiques are always appreciated here.

You can also follow me on...

Hope you will enjoy the work that I'll put out in the future. ^^

This is more of an idea than it is feedback on the artwork. Okay so for the T.C.U. Folder, I've split up into four individual folders 
makini90.deviantart.com/galler…

Sketchwork: Specific drawings taken straight from my sketchbook, only the ones that represent what this project is all about.
Xylena - Let's Go by Makini90 Zartanica - The Spirit of A Champion by Makini90 Vinetta - Taekwondo Saved My Life by Makini90 Zartanica - Igniting The Crowd by Makini90

Old Work: All of the artwork and illustrations of this project that I did before I rebooted it back in June.
Tess's Training by Makini90 Neneko Profile by Makini90 Vinetta's Resting After a Kicking Session by Makini90 Kiss The Bottom of My Sneakers! by Makini90

Full Body Character Profiles: This will be full body shots of each girl in the roster along with a more summarized description, not too summarized I'm keeping the stats in the description, but the backstory is gonna be more shorter and summarized. 

Here's an example of what I maybe going for with the Full Body Profiles:
1.bp.blogspot.com/-s1QDbWY2u3U…

Character Illustrations: Full Color Illustrations of any of the characters or the world in general. 
Gabi Says Bring It! by Makini90 Nadia's Ferocity by Makini90

Ok so here's what I'm thinking, I'm thinking that for the full body profiles, It's gonna be done in the coloring style similar to the Old work in fact the whole style of T.C.U is a continuation of the old work illustrations, but with added coloring, lighting, and shading. Anyway with the full body profiles, I'm thinking of keeping it simple in terms of the coloring. I guess what I mean simple is that to keep with the number required for levels of lighting and shading, but don't add the extra amounts, just keep it simple kinda like what you see with the link of the Vinetta Full body illustration. With the character illustrations however. Make it full color with the required amount of lighting and shading, but pump it up so much more with the coloring like I usually do with the pinup work. Use the character illustrations as a showcase for this project. Really put the time in each one and just make it pop like I always do, but with the character profiles, keep it simple and don't aim to pump it up I guess..

What do you think? Do you guys think that I'm just being lazy and half assing it if I go that route, or can it be effective by simplifying the character profiles, but make the character illustrations really shine? Let me know your thoughts. Say like If I took the Gabi illustration and went back in and added more lighting and shading like I do with my pinup illlustraitons. 

Ultimately I want to bring that attention to the coloring that I usually do with my pinup illustrations and bring it to other artwork. And I want to be able to bring these out more quickly without sacrificing the quality. I think the second part is just naturally gonna happen because of how much time I spend on illustrator a day lol. 

And looking at what's around me here on DA I wanna completely stop being envious of other peoples work and status and let that inspire me and motivate me to do more :)

Anyway please let me know what you guys think. I can have a good perspective on how to go forward with this project. 
Thanks :3

So im back in full form now. I still have some things left to take care of though, but I'm doing it in weeks spurces though. I still have five or 6 things left to do and I'm gonna do it week by week, but will immediately start on the next one after i'm done with one. So here's the list...

HT request for :iconhinatafox790:
Pinup request for :iconcrshh:
Art Trade with :icondrerika:
Gift for :iconmissshadow-lovely:
Pinup of :iconmissshadow-lovely: OC Kali (based on an early poll)
Pinup of Kasumi from Dead or Alive (based on last weeks poll) 

So you guys already know what I'm gonna do afterwards. I'm gonna focus on the Model Directory, Weekly poll Illustrations, Tri-City Underground, and start on Commissions. Points first, but leave the regular commission window opened. And about what I have left, each week I'll have an illustration based on a poll and I will continue to post up drawings from my T.C.U. Sketchbook, speaking of which the next character is up on my blog and after Vinetta, the next blogpost will be on Zartanica that furry Luchador character check out the profiles for Nadia & Vinetta in the link below. 

Vinetta:
makini90.blogspot.com/?zx=312f…

Nadia:
makini90.blogspot.com/2014/08/…

Pretty much the rest of the year is gonna be the Model Directory, Weekly Poll Illustrations, and the Tri-City Underground Project. With the Commission window sprinkled in a little bit. Also I've decided that once I'm done with everything listed above, I won't be doing requests anymore, but I be open for trades and there are a few people that I want to do an AT with lol. 

Anyway let me know what you guys think. 
Take care and happy Labor Day everyone! I will post up a TCU drawing tomorrow and Kali & Kasumi will be up later on this week. :)

I've been talking about this series since I began it after I finished the June Collection. 5 pinups in and a ton and I mean a ton of new sketches later, I've decided to create a central page on my blog for this series. You guys will see every sketch, every illustration, every idea for each one of the 13 Models. It's just the start and I meant it when I said that I want this to be an ongoing series, no one illustration and done, this is a long term series. You're gonna see more than just one pinup of each OC. I've said before that it's whatever ideas that I may have and if it looks good enough then I'll bring it to color. 

Guys please check this out and let me know what you think. And keep checking back from time to time cause I'll add new sketches and illustrations as soon as I finish them.
