◆ July 2018 GIGAZINE Manga Awards Top Illustration
Top view illustration was given to Mr. Arisa . I feel the power of manga that you can fly anywhere freely, as a witch child who jumped out of a book draws a trace of the seven colors in the air.
I got a comment from Ms. Arisa .
Nice to meet you.
This time I am honored to appoint you as the top illustration of the GIGAZINE Manga Award.
While living normally with a cat, I am doing work on illustration and game UI production.
The top illustration of this time was drawn with a fantasy taste,
I like this fantasy world view, clothing, and decoration very much, so I put these illustrations in HP and Pixiv, too.
This illustration is also a piece that I could draw so fun, so I'm happy if you can see it to the end!
The following will be making.
Here is what I gave you a rough idea. "This time it was an illustration for the manga grand prix, so I wanted to express exciting feelings when turning over the manga page, I also love diorama figures such as vignette, this comic award winning prize Because I thought that it would fit the image to the illustration, I also brought up a rough combination that too.The rough work that assembles these elements is the most enjoyable time. "
Yes "This time there are a lot of accessories, we decided the approximate color at the rough stage, so we will start painting work at once, if you do not decide the shape of your face and hair first, So I will advance these two points first.The face is particularly time-consuming, so while proceeding carefully, I am proceeding with work while thinking that the A line silver hair longest is the best (lol) "
Yes "Since the face and hair are decided, I will also apply clothes as it is.I like to paint red.The work of painting clothes in the person was the most enjoyable.In the rough, patterns and decorations are on the clothes I have more, but once I keep the accessories as it is. "
Yes "Since I drew from the face to the bottom in order, I will also make buildings and mascot characters as they are.Variettes will be produced if they are fan shaped, so I will make curves more conscious than usual."
Yes "I will draw crowns and treasure chests and other small items, and at this stage I changed the color of the treasure box, which was green at the time of rough, to red"
Yes "I have been able to draw in the whole. I decided most of the color at the time of roughness, so it was good that the progress made without hesitation led to shortening of the result as a result
Yes, "While adjusting the shadow of the details, I will add paint to the broom of the witch.Whenever I draw, I feel that my comic is really a dream, I can not stand it, I can not endure anything, some comic I have read and fished. "
Yes "Add small items and patterns to the witch's clothes and scatter the petals throughout the screen.If you draw the small items of clothes at the end, you can take it carefully because it makes you feel like finishing at once. Keeping the enjoyment in the picture in the last person, drawing it there will be a rewarding feeling, so I can paint it fun till the end. "
Yes "Finally it is finished adding a little more shadows and fine tuning of saturation. Thank you!"
