worthy of its own

I’m pretty excited for this random product. I think I was browsing a generic shoujo blog on Tumblr and saw this tiny gif of someone paint bucketing a pair of shoujo girl eyes black to create a classic manga look. I saw it and I was all OKAY THIS NEVER OCCURRED TO ME, and then my brain started avalanching about possibilities for a digital manga style where I don’t have to wrestle with color till I inevitably peter out and don’t care about the colors I choose as much as I care about finishing the product. See, I technically did the same amount of work on this one – if not more – but I loved it 100% more.

I’m glad I loosely knew about Manga Studio’s screentones but I’m super excited with how I delivered. And I didn’t even hesitate with the lineart; I think it probably took me 15 minutes. Granted, it’s not treading new ground for me by any means, but SHE’S SO DANG CUTE

And for once, her belly button doesn’t even look weird.still-

One thought on “worthy of its own

  1. I’ve always loved the stark contrast of black and white…I think we used to call it “noir”.

    Well done — it will be good to see you explore something DIFFERENT! I look forward to your next.
