Hey, let’s keep playing around with the Pixiv prompts. This time it’s sailor uniform. I’m still trying out different simple coloring techniques. No matter how I look at it I prefer to add a bit more colors. Leaving it too simple just doesn’t seem right. I guess my style is starting to develop. (・∧‐)ゞ
I should be able to push it even more but I don’t want to spend too much time on one piece right now. I just have to keep drawing everyday and let my skills develop naturally. Once I get to a level I feel is good and also feel my speed is fast enough then I will start playing around with adding backgrounds.
Let’s see what happens.
The finished piece:
Reference used, altered to fit the theme among other things:
I drew it and inked it traditionally first. I truthfully prefer drawing this way though I have gotten used to doing it digitally.
This flat color style doesn’t look bad.
That’s it for now. I’ve been working on other pieces but I feel I should try to make and upload a piece a day so I can brute force my development.
Hasta la proxima,
While looking through Pixiv and some Mexican memes on “Fresh Anime Memes from a Mexican Otaco” I came across two artist that made art that was rather cartoony and “round” and yet also very anime like. I really like it so I wanted to give it a try.
This was done in 8/10/18:
I believe I did this with my dip pen and a pen named Bimoji Fedepen, the hard tip one (there are various types that also go to a brush type that is pretty cool).
This is the reference picture I used. This was from Sayu’s photo book “Mille-feuille”.
I then colored the line art with my Copic markers (process will be shown a bit below). I noticed that I was much too preoccupied with the way the other artist were drawing their eyes from the references (will post them below) I was looking at so she looks a bit angry.
Noticing that I used, I believe Photoshop to widen her eyes.
I widened them even more, and noticed that there is quite a bit of flexibility with this style so I really want to try out more things to see what I can come up with.
These were some of the references I used to try and understand the style.

And here is the process:
When I finished painting this piece and scanning it I had to go ahead and correct the colors that get washed out in the scanning process.
After that I began trying out different eye shapes.
That should be all for now.
Hasta la proxima,
