Rin Shima Freezing

Originally drawn for Inktober 2022 day 23.

I had to modify some of the lineart but for the most part it all worked out. I know the anime uses blue hair, but I quite like the more purple hue she has in the manga illustrations. the outfit and colors I got from a figure of Rin on her Yamaha Vino. It really helped out a lot.

Rin Shima Next destination COLOR

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.

Rin Shima Next destination Line Art

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.
