CG: Kyonko

Drew the image in paper, did the line art, and colored it with Photoshop CS3 and Wacom Intuos3.

Time for drawing: 30 mins.
Time for line art and coloring: 4 hours.


Background is screen cap from anime.

Line art:

decided to change her ponytail when did the coloring ^^;

Original sketch (very dirty, I used my camera to transfer it to my computer, don’t have scanner :p)

Drew the picture at office lunch time ^^; the style is a bit inspired by minami-ke and aria (recent animes that I watch ^^;).

I hope I can improve my drawing more, this one is barely decent ^^;

  1. Hm, I think there’s too much shadow in the face, and if you asks me, it seems a little bit unnatural because the effect of the light sources (the direction of the shadows) is not consistent unless you have two lamps focused on her face. But that will also be unnatural if you consider the daylight background.
    Nice line art, though !

  2. Your choice of color looks very fitting for an anime cell paint. Where did the background come from?

    Things I would work on would be your line quality – know when to use thick lines and when to use thin lines. Proportions are quite good. I’d watch how to make natural lines for hair so that it doesn’t look like a PVC doll. 😉

  3. background is from minami ke 😀

    yah, I’m still not good on line arting, still can’t control the pen pressure 🙂

  4. background is screen cap from anime, as I mentioned in the post 🙂

    my level is not high enough to make a proper background 😀

  5. Hi Rene,Sorry to hear your picture wasn’t inluedcd. Unfortunately we only have room for 25 pictures in our gallery, and it’s possible that your shot maybe was a little fuzzy, so it didn’t make the cut. Mariela the photo gallery is designed to give a picture of what the entire event was like. We do feature video of our two winners only (you can find them in the video gallery).Looking forward to seeing you both at the next round!Brandi.
