This was painted using the drawing I made for inktober 2019 on day 21. When I first drew this I was imagining fall but it of course wasn’t hard to change it to winter. I actually finished this about a week ago but since Valentines day was getting close I decided to hold on to it. Of course I decided to add the letters to fit in with Valentines day. I did think about adding some chocolate gifts but I think this will do fine this time.
I really like the path the manga decided to take in regards to Komi’s and Manbagi’s relationship. They are both really cute but in very different ways both in looks and personality.
Hope you guys like it:
There are three versions of it, but I still can’t post them here through Pixiv. Here’s some previews from Twitter:
Hasta la proxima,
Welp today was Valentines day so since I want to participate in the seasons holidays a bit more so that the years don’t feel so monotonous I of course made a drawing for today. I’ve been wanting to do a purely pen drawing this time. I also wanted to try out ‘s style for a while now. So I used this chance to give it a try. What’s funny is that as I was trying to find the link to Hiro’s twitter account I stumbled upon one of his videos where he showcases his inking process. Looking at it, it is obvious why they both look so different when it comes to the way the hair was inked. Having said that I’m glad I didn’t see it till after I was done so that I could compare both styles.
I used Airi Suzuki as a reference for this piece using a photo from her photobook “Aoiro”. I just changed some things to make her in the manga style and having her hold a gift.
Here is the final piece:
Here is the process:
Hope you guys had a great day today.
Hasta la proxima,
