Welp today was Valentines day so since I want to participate in the seasons holidays a bit more so that the years don’t feel so monotonous I of course made a drawing for today. I’ve been wanting to do a purely pen drawing this time. I also wanted to try out siiteiebahiro ‘s style for a while now. So I used this chance to give it a try. What’s funny is that as I was trying to find the link to Hiro’s twitter account I stumbled upon one of his videos where he showcases his inking process. Looking at it, it is obvious why they both look so different when it comes to the way the hair was inked. Having said that I’m glad I didn’t see it till after I was done so that I could compare both styles.
I used Airi Suzuki as a reference for this piece using a photo from her photobook “Aoiro”. I just changed some things to make her in the manga style and having her hold a gift.
Here is the final piece:
Here is the process:
Hope you guys had a great day today.
Hasta la proxima,
