My plate has been pretty full the past few weeks. I’m bummed that I haven’t had time to blog, so I snuck in some time this evening for myself. An illustrator has to be able to emulate different styles when needed. I picked up this massive book called “The Monster Book of Manga – Girls” at the library last week. There are some awesome drawings in this book, but I’m pretty partial to woodland creatures being a rainforest dweller m’self.
Here’s the step-by-step drawing path they lay out for you in the book – my colours are pretty different and I’m determined to continue to work in illustrator vs. photoshop, so the final result is pretty different from the book, but all in all, I think she looks pretty darn Manga.
