◆ January 2019 GIGAZINE Manga Awards Top Illustration
I received the Mr. Hatasegawa for the illustration of the top picture in January 2019. Voice of unexpected admiration leaks into one piece that is cut out dazzlingly beautifully. It is an illustration that I like to carefully enjoy the fine background and fashionable and cute costumes.

I got a comment from Mr. Hasegawa .

Nice to meet you, Mr. Hatasegawa.
Thank you for accepting this as the top picture of the GIGAZINE Manga Award.
I usually design illustrations of social games and corporate characters.
I began participating in exhibition activities of analog (watercolor) paintings from 2018.
I am practicing so that I can draw pictures of various tastes from thick coat to cell tone.

Below is the making of illustration.

Hanase river "Since the opening time was" 2019 New Year's First and Winter Season ", I drew a rough to make it an illustration to feel the arrival of spring, keeping the ornate image of New Year's Day. I packed my favorite elements such as magic, sweets and small animals into a fantasy world view.Rough adjusts until it is convincing, and incorporates all the elements such as the background and effects and decides the final impression. "

Hanase Kawa "Since this time it is a taste of thick coating system, I draw a line drawing that does not make it a thin and uniform line daringly, leaving fluctuations.It adds fine decoration and arranges drawing, Organizes the shape more easily than rough To make painting work easier, I will divide the folder with the background → the character → the object in front of the character → the effect ... .... "

Hanase Kawa "I will proceed while looking at the balance of the whole.We do not divide the color layer so much this time and 90% will be painted at the beginning because it can not be advanced unless the face of the character is decided."

Hanase river "I will paint zakuzaku.When I finish painting the base color I draw a pattern on the kimono and the background.The silhouette drawing with gold → pointing the color → arrange it .. When the pattern enters the whole, Monotonous screens will be gorgeous at once. "

Hanase River "I will scatter the flowers of plums, so I have decided how to see the whole, so afterwards I will paint various places until I feel better"

Hanase river "To further paint, I will add shadows over the entire overlay.The depth will appear on the screen which I stick to.This is finished by adjusting the effect at the end"

Hanase river "I made a girl expression expression difference for thumbnails.Adjust fine to match thumbnail ratio, such as having plum branch in hand or blurring background etc. This is the work done. Thank you very much for the end. "
