Hehe, I'm back! This time with some Kagerou Project, in light of the anime adaptation's release.
I've always wanted to draw Mary like this, at the peak of breaking down from all the chaos that goes around. It gave me chills.
I sketched it, and added lines for most part but her hair (which I brushed manually). For the shading, I relied mostly using multiple Multiply layers. Turns out it's pretty nifty, saves more time compared to going to every base color layer, locking the opacity, and brushing darker colors over it. I might need to work on color variation on the shades though, hehe.
Drawn and colored with mouse, on Paint Tool SAI, minor touches in Photoshop CS5,
Kagerou Project and characters are Jin and co.'s~
Uwaaa Taffy! Your comment... Where can I even start? 8"D
I'm glad you like the impression this picture gives you! I wanted to make a piece that conveys a sense of despair and pain, so I put extra emphasis on her expression and the colors, to get the right atmosphere, like a dark fairy-tale storybook.
Ah, I brushed her hair entirely, because drawing long hair manually felt very tiring and tedious for me (since long curved lines are hard to draw with a mouse, huheuhe). I'm sorry it's a bit rough/messy, but I'm still glad you liked how it turned out! ; u ;
dan gapapa, manganya juga belum sampe situ kali. #plak
And waah, actually, most of my time on this drawing was spent on adding finishing touches/details as well as adjusting some colors. The linework did take some time (4+ hours! 8D), but the colors and shades were quite simple in comparison. Sometimes I spend more time thinking of ideas compared to actually drawing them, ehehe.
But thank you so much for your input, kak Ditha! I'm really glad you liked this!
