By pure luck I managed to see Karin’s Instagram live celebrating her 23rd birthday. It’s funny that at the end she messed up the finger positions and was accidently showing 32. I debated making two more pieces showcasing this but I ran out of time. I wonder why the videos get mirrored? I’ve noticed that many photos and videos are in this format.
Reference used was from the Hello! Project Digital Books vol. 162. I drew this way back in July. I decided to wait and come back to it a bit later. I ended up editing some of the line art and lightened some sections of it.
Recently Karin uploaded an instagram video of her taking a self portrait which was really cute and funny which I wanted to recreate in pixel form. She looks like an 80s boss with her outfit and pose (a fun one).
