Wanted to try out another portrait framed by hair and including splatters and drips, this time going with a cute anime style or ‘Moe’ anime style. Sometimes it’s good just to focus on a head rather than feeling the need to produce full body posing images every time- It gives me a chance to play around with facial styles which is a lot of fun, and without needing to pour in 100s of hours every time I create a new bit of work. Having said that, making some nice, neat line art and smooth colouring still stakes a few days compared to messier painterly styles. I think I did this one over the course of 3 or 4 days?
At the moment I’m using a Wacom Cintiq 27QHD graphics tablet to work on, which is also a lot of fun.
Also thought I’d experiment with a few different colour variations- Dark skinned anime girl with red lily and light hair anime girl with pink lily. Any Preference? Let me know which version you like best 🙂
