I really loved Miyabi’s New Years photos. She looks really beautiful with her kimono. She mentioned it was a retro look, so I’m guessing this is a Showa era style? It really suits her. She looks so ａｅｓｔｈｅｔｉｃ with the shrine in the background. I think an 80s/90s anime style would look good but I feel it will also look good in watercolor. Just recently on her Twitter she mentioned that she has been getting nostalgic for Berryz Koubou. She also gave the impression that there might be a reunion of some kind. ･:*+.(( °ω° ))/.:+
Thank you so much for this past year Miyabi, hopefully this year will be great for you.
That’s number two down. I might just be able to finish the third painting, but we’ll see. While Hina is having fun with her fantasy anime life coming to life, I can totally see Tamura being annoyed at seeing Hina get close to Tomoko and enjoying her passive aggressive tendencies.
The second of the Christmas drawings I have inked in the countdown to Christmas. In a lot of ways, Hina’s wishes have been getting granted right before graduation huh? Good thing she decided to show her true self more.
One of the drawings I did in the countdown to Christmas this year. Who knows if I will be able to finish the painting process in time. Has been a while since I last did a Toho drawing, specially of Marisa. Didn’t have much of a plan so I just sketched and this is what came out.
What I wanted to try out was Rumiko Takahashi’s classic style of painting. Looking at various artworks I decided to paint Ryoga in this way using only one color for each section of Ryoga and using only the saturation of the paint to make color and value variations. But only ever so slightly. But before I did paint it, I went over the rough draft with my mechanical pencil to darken and indent the paper. Once this was done I then erased the whole paper and painted with whatever graphite managed to survive and the indentations left behind. The effect wasn’t too bad, but it was obvious that I needed to add some type of outline. For this instance I decided to do that by using my Copic multiliner and a Stabilo pen for the darker areas.
Decided to just do a quick drawing today. My plans are to probably paint it with watercolors. Although I might just paint it digitally at some point in the future as well, we’ll see. I didn’t really have any idea of what I wanted to draw really, but as I was sketching I came up with this drawing.
