Browsing Deviantart: My Hero Academia Fanart


Gee willikers with Season 4 approaching faster than the apocalypse I think it would be appropriate to finally do a Browsing Deviantart on My Hero Academia One of the only three anime series I’ve ever watched a decent amount of I just tend to avoid anime a lot I don’t know why Ok on to the video I guess So it should be said that My Hero Academia is quite possibly the perfect storm for fan characters Take a world where each and every character has some unique power and design And then supercharge that with teenagers And you’ve got yourself the ultimate fan character machine And so you’ll get many drawings like this Here we have a character with an animal related quirk I don’t have much to say about this Except that the pectoral over here is a bit flat and I think the blue mohawk is a bit silly Unless that’s what they’re going for What I like most about this design is that every element seems to have a purpose Like all the animalistic features make sense for movement and the skin suit makes sense for agility. The mohawk just seems like an unnecessary addition. However If that’s their way of adding a bit of personality then fair enough If they wanted to keep the crazy hair that can make the hair allude to some animal trait like if you look at some of the characters in the show their hair usually suggests what their power is Like Bucky goes is clearly an explosion *boom* And that electric guy has that lightning bolt on the side I would encourage them to find something like that Unless there’s some animal related aspect to the mohawk that I’m just completely missing I don’t know if this is intentional or not But the body seems more Elongated Than the average male build Which I think adds a subtle hint to how the animal design affects more than just the limbs And potentially distorts the body to fit the quirk As for the craft, the linework seems to be quite jagged You can tell especially around the forearm where the lines are broken up and don’t look like one smooth stroke That’s one of the major things I would work on for the final drawing and now onto the bio Whoops I’m guilty of making a My Hero Academia OC His name is Shi Roku Dama, I guess And his quirk is shape-shifting He can shift into animals or shift certain body parts to that of another animal And can even use animals abilities without morphing Such as changing his skin pigmentation or having a stronger sense of smell or sight His costume is made to morph with his body shape Don’t ask me how cuz I’m not completely sure myself, lol Well, if I were the artist, I would probably research a bit into how such a technology could be theoretically possible I’m not asking for a working prototype or anything, but that’s where the fun of writing comes in You could give a few sentences to how the fibers work or something and you wouldn’t need much more than that I think it would be beneficial to ground the character a bit which helps with our suspension of disbelief He’s a precious 𝑩𝑬𝑨𝑵 Who’s into rock and metal When I first read this I thought they were talking about literal rock and metal I guess a part of me thought animal mind equals fondness for minerals But then I realized those are also genres of music So, I mean it still could be And due to his quirk he has extensive knowledge of animals and continues to study them Overall, this is a fairly well designed character with a few drawing issues While we’re appreciating this fan art of Stain, who is the infamous hero killer of the series I just want to tell you a dumb story about this dude’s name So while I was trying to summarize My Hero Academia to my younger brother I completely forgot the name of this dude halfway through and so my brain for some reason decided that the best substitute was the word streak Which is a pretty similar word to stain I suppose And well, now I can only think about how streak sounds like Stain’s mentally challenged brother or something S-So like… Why does this dude look so much like Moby from Tim and Moby Someone make that edit You know the one The one with the “Look at this dude” and uh “*wheezes* AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA” “LOOK AT HIS LIPS HHHH” That would get some haha funnies and epic laughs from me Hey, Izuku how do you keep that twinkle in your eyes Oh! Tears Okay. Yeah, that one’s getting a favourite from me He cries so so much This drawing of Midoriya is in the style, I can only describe as Dr. Seuss and old-fashioned rubber hose And if we go to their profile page Uh-huh Yep The artist notes this is the first anime character they’ve ever drawn. And I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this attempted before. I’ve seen characters Seuss-afied if you will but not anime characters Probably because the styles are so different But I think they did a pretty good job at making the character recognizable Why is there always a perfect 90 degree angle chin? This is like such a common problem If I get a picture from the show in roughly the same position you’ll see there’s the smooth transition Yeah, the angle I suppose is just a little bit more than 90 degrees, but it isn’t a quick turn of the corner There’s this fullness to the cheeks that you just can’t get from two intersecting lines You just gotta experiment with smoothing that out in a stylized way, of course before any of that for this artist I would start with practicing basic 3D forms I also really love how unsettled their characters are Like Deku’s sweater has a heart and Bakugo’s is just… Death And I’m like, yeah, that’s pretty much what it’s like in the show. Oh boy oh boy, there they are The coalition of evil-ers You know what I always found strange, is that they would call themselves the League of Villains Isn’t that the equivalent of making a political party called “The Really Bad Dudes” or something Unless that’s the name that was bestowed upon them by society Or I’m just completely remembering wrong It looks like we have some Jamie Hewlett influence maybe I always have a hard time critiquing things like this Mostly because of how clean it is and also because there’s a lot of stylistic decisions I don’t think I can really analyze properly Like this chair looks abnormally tall but this dude’s legs are also really long So I don’t know, you know? It’s an overall neatly drawn villain group I know this dude is a fan favorite And while we have this image up I always wondered if that stuff on his face was like the lower layer of his skin I don’t think they ever made that clear in the show So I always assumed that there was just vast areas of his body that had less protection from the environment So all I could think of is how much dirt and sand and crap would get in there And just Irritate the hell out of him I went to the wiki of My Hero Academia because I kind of forgot about this character And I realized that spreading Stain’s ideology is listed as a hobby And then I went to other villains and saw the Hobby section and you have things like Killing people And killing and devouring children Like I guess the definition is technically correct, but man, it just sounds so inappropriate Ah yes, I kill and devour children in my spare time, but mostly I go to work at the office I would like to highlight this work mostly because of the color scheme You’ve got all these green highlights Which kind of takes Deku’s most recognizable feature And spreads it out to his clothes and even the shadows Then all the skin and other parts of the clothes is this almost cream color which gives tons of contrast to the dark navy blue All of this laid on this flat orange background It’s one of those things where if you look at it briefly you think there’s only like three hues being used But it’s actually more complicated than you realize The only thing I think is weird is that the pose looks a bit stiff? It looks like he’s trying to carry something in this hand while running I thought he was trying to bring a cup of coffee to All Might or something from the thumbnail It’s certainly not a big deal It’s really not that obvious and I might be getting this impression because of the baggy clothes… But I thought it was worth pointing out Anyway, my name is Solar Sands And Goodbye

  1. Hey, can you roast my art?

    https://www.deviantart.com/superslug2000
    I would really appreciate some harsher criticism.

  2. My memory may be wrong, but in the first season, All For One said something along the lines of “luckily we used the cheap League of Villains name.” The name probably wasn’t the actual group’s name, but news spread of this “cheap” name and it kinda stuck I guess

  3. When I draw something I like, I like to show it too my "friends" and my classmates but all they do is say, "😨😨😠 Its bad." Or just scribble on it, and rip it. I only have one friend that actually comments on it. I need more friends like her..

  4. Can you please review my first post on DeviantArt? I just started today and I want to improve my art! (My username is GhostBeeArtworks)

  5. If u have time or if u do the submissions still, do u mind looking at my drawing?

  7. Idk why but I hate this fandom.

    Like is it "too normie"? Am I one of those types of people who dislike others because they're "normal"? That's dumb.

    Anyway fuck this fandom, it's like a to people making a ton inside jokes, except basically everyone knows what it fuckin' means. Not funny didn't laugh. Same thing happened to the Jojo fandom. No point in acting like you're apart of some kind of niche community, when it's basically a household name for anyone who's ever come in contact with anime ever.

  8. Im always scared of posting my attempts at illustrations for fear of crying my self to sleep after you put it in one of your videos 😛

  9. What would be a great Story plot in your opinion? Like of you were to make a comic or a story?

    (Edit) I take your Opinions and Comments and Advice for granted, so far it's helped me improve on my art ability. However, Me and My friends were planning on making a comic book, So far your advice helped me on art wise, but what would be a "decent" Story plot?

  10. ill be like explaining mha to my little brother and he'll be like "whos bakugo again?" aand i just be like "lord explosion murder" and he understands lmao

  11. In all honesty, I forgot about this guy for years OoO

    And then I got this in my recommended, I haven’t used my deviant art in forever. The nostalgia is killing me

  12. Honestly, as someone who's seen all of the anime you've listed there, the two you've watched are the only ones on the list worth watching. I suppose a case might be made for Steins;Gate, but it's relatively weak and you're fine without it. Much like Star Wars, it was a lot more impressive when it first came out, and had not spawned a million and a half imitators that did the same thing better with improved technology.

  13. omg when i think of bna fan art i think of this one image where he was lactating a brown substance and it scares me honestly I AM TRAUMITIZED—

  14. to be fair, the league of villains call themselves that because their goal is to ruin the reputation of heroes and show people that hero society is a corrupt idea
    its like a protest name I think

    and I think the fact that the characters either dont notice or ignore the irony in being so cartoonishly evil and calling themselves villains as a protest against being labelled evil is deliberate

  15. I would guess that they named themselves villains, because in this society it's no different than criminal (except obviously it's used to describe superpowered people), and you don't see much criminals calling themselves anything else.

  16. Hay I just wanna say that I have been watching you channel for a few years and it has helped my anatomy and my shading and stuff and I just wanted to say thank you because if I had never found you Chantal I would probably not be able to draw at the rate I am at ☺️

  17. Hello Solar Sands I would like to say thank you so much for featuring my art in your video. I really wasn't expecting it to be there, but for some unexpected reason it was. Keep up the good work and stay funny, your channel actually has helped me understand art even though I still have to work on my style. Also, love the other styles, characters, and artwork featured in this video. Big props to the people who took the time to make them.

  18. I like how he didn't shit on the ships and let everyone just do what they wanted. Peaceful, as things should be. UwU

  19. Guys when solar sands said phineas and ferb was his favorite anime this is what he was talking about
    https://youtu.be/lZ84crMLmsA

  20. "ah yes, I kill and devour children in my spare time, but I mostly spend my time in the office"
    idk how I find this funny but it is xd

  21. Could you do a video about drawing characters from other parts of the world? A close friend of mine actually said that I shouldn't be allowed to draw PoC because I'm white. I get that sounds ridiculous to some, but their reasoning was that even if I did research on a culture, I still would never be able to fully create a character that represents said culture unless I was from there.

    They said they took the cheesiest name they had thought of.
    Why? I don‘t know. Shigaraki once said because of some masterplan or something, so he made it sound really cool and like they actually have an amazing name, but just hide it.
