Lynn Minmey Rainy MR2

It’s been a while since I last made a painting of Macross. I came upon a reference picture of Akina Nakamori which I felt would translate well as a Lynn Minmey painting. I thought about changing the outfit but quite liked the aesthetic, so I decided to keep it. The reference picture I have didn’t allow me to find out what the car is, which made me decide to paint an MR2 in it’s stead.

Lynn Minmay Idol prompt

Today’s Pixiv theme is “idol” so why not draw and paint the eternal idol Lynn Minmay from Macross. It’s funny, while looking for references for the pose I would use to draw Minmay. I came upon a photo of Naoko Kawai wearing almost the exact same clothes that Minmay used in “Do you Remember Love”.

This is the photo in question: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/65/46/72/65467210d1a96d7d94cde7e6efe16c18.jpg

That of course had me decide on this particular reference photo. Really quite enjoyed the way it came out, specially when it was colored in.

Hasta la proxima,
