This is the colored version of the ink drawing I made of Rin Shima which can be seen here.
I decided to do something a bit different in that I wanted to see if I could just modify some reference pictures. I wanted to convey the feeling of accomplishing the goal of reaching a destination and embarking to the next one. As I was painting the raindrops, I decided to add a drop on Shima’s finger which I felt really fit. Because I decided to follow the reference picture a bit too closely, but I guess it was a happy mistake.
I had been reading the manga for a while now, but was surprised to learn just how big Yuru Camp is in Japan. That makes me rather happy. I actually went camping last summer. I couldn’t help but remember Yuru Camp. For my first artwork of this series, I picked Rin Shima. I quite like how dependable and independent she is.
A painting that I painted last minute. Was a bit busy but I just barely made it. Hope you guys had a great Earth day. Hopefully everyone is still protecting her. I’ve had the idea that Master Asia from G Gundam and Earth chan would pair up nicely (those who have seen G Gundam know why). I don’t blame Master Asia for his decision to execute his plan. I mean, who wouldn’t want to protect her at all costs.
