◆ October 2018 GIGAZINE Manga Awards Top Illustration
I received the 93 th (Tsukumi) san in the top illustration of October 2018. A fantastic atmosphere of a girl walking in the city of the night and strange surroundings is a wonderful piece. I am attracted by a strange girl and I feel the gravitation that is pulled by a story I do not know what will happen.


Ninety-three I received a comment from Mr..

Nice to meet you, my name is Tsukui.
Thank you for accepting this GIGAZINE Manga Award for the top illustration!
Illustration of this time is a work that painted pleasantly with putting your favorite elements, such as girls and sparkling backgrounds, so I'm pleased if you are enjoying even a little even those who are watching.
I usually draw illustrations by my hobbies and work. I am still looking for expressions · I am studying variously, but if you are interested, I would be happy if you can see activities such as Pixiv and Twitter.


Below is the making of illustration.

93 "Since it is October, I took a theme for Halloween, so I drew while thinking about the atmosphere and motifs I wanted to draw such as" Witch and pumpkin "," Scary cute "" Night "," Walking under the pumpkin lantern I made a rough feeling like "a witch to do" because the element of "scary" scary cute did not enter well so this time without it "


93 "I draw a line drawing once I adjust the rough. I often use a pencil-style brush when drawing a line."


Ninety-three "Because the drawing has ended, we will color-categorize each part while checking the rough."


93 "I will paint the witches in front of you first, once I put the shadow on the whole with a dark color, I will arrange it with a bright color"



Ninety-three "We have increased the drawing overall, It is fun to put highlights on the contours of people.The idea has changed the painting of the witch's eyes and made candy in the hand of a ghost The background is drawn directly on the rough layer. "


93 "Since the strength of the pumpkin's assertion began to worry at this stage, I dared to change the color of pumpkin from orange to transparent, in order to make the witch stand out a bit more, After painting the finish and adding the effect, adjust the color and brightness so that it will be your favorite atmosphere and you're done. "
