Trying out an ANIME X CARTOON style: Sayumi Michishige

While looking through Pixiv and some Mexican memes on “Fresh Anime Memes from a Mexican Otaco” I came across two artist that made art that was rather cartoony and “round” and yet also very anime like. I really like it so I wanted to give it a try.

This was done in 8/10/18:

I believe I did this with my dip pen and a pen named Bimoji Fedepen, the hard tip one (there are various types that also go to a brush type that is pretty cool).

This is the reference picture I used. This was from Sayu’s photo book “Mille-feuille”.

I then colored the line art with my Copic markers (process will be shown a bit below). I noticed that I was much too preoccupied with the way the other artist were drawing their eyes from the references (will post them below) I was looking at so she looks a bit angry.

Noticing that I used, I believe Photoshop to widen her eyes.

I widened them even more, and noticed that there is quite a bit of flexibility with this style so I really want to try out more things to see what I can come up with.

These were some of the references I used to try and understand the style.

When I finished painting this piece and scanning it I had to go ahead and correct the colors that get washed out in the scanning process.

After that I began trying out different eye shapes.

That should be all for now.

Hasta la proxima,
