BerryKyuu 20th anniversary

It took a while but I finally managed to finish this painting to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Berryz Koubou and ℃-ute first known as the Hello Project Kids. I was wondering what I should draw\paint to celebrate and remembered the I believe Hello Morning episode where they announced the finalists who would be joining Hello Project. The delayed reaction of everyone learning that they were all chosen to stay was funny and cute. There was a good delay before they all reacted to the news. This I believe was a great moment to paint since this is where it all began.

Thank you for this past 20 years. And here’s to celebrating the future ones as well.

Hasta la proxima,


Ai Takahashi Graduation Commemoration

It’ was really sad to hear the news when it was announced that Ai Takahashi was going to graduate a couple of months ago. So to commemorate the graduation of my all time favourite Morning Musume member I decided to draw her. I chose to draw her in the Mikan Motif because that is the first video that I saw and discoverd the group. The person who really captured my attention with her smile was none other than the cute and beautiful Ai Takahashi. Her gaze and smile as well as amazing voice captivated me. For some reason I kept having problems when I was drawing her, it was really hard to capture her face expression.
