◆ February 2019 GIGAZINE Manga Awards Top Illustration
A top picture illustration in February 2019 was given to Mr. Motoyama Mr. Hana . Dokili will make a wonderful composition that the woman who works with the tablet is staring back from the tablet side. When drawing a story, the characters may be staring at the writer.
Hello, this is Hana Motoyama Nana writers.
I drew the top illustration of the "GIGAZINE Manga Award" February.
I ordered the illustration to make the "manga grand prix" image, so I drew an illustration while exploring various possibilities.
It was a unique opportunity to draw the writer himself as the hero and it was a lot of fun to draw
By all means, I'm happy to see Motoyama's "This is it" in the making following it.
Below is the making of illustration.
Motoyama "Rough proposal creates a rough near completion after creating a rough composition, explore diagrams that can make people interested in the illustration or have the idea to apply At this time, I was conscious of the illustration seen from the top page, we also examined the thumbnail size figure together. "
Motoyama "It is a design that I thought from the place I wanted to convey the amount of heat I felt by seeing the site of GIGAZINE and the passion of the artist.The" motive "and" power "are simple and The composition expressed in pop. I want to aim for a piece that can raise morale. "
Motoyama "It is a design that I thought of wanting to appeal to the writer I am trying to enter, as the people climb the stairs, real character town and fantasy drawing live together with the hero who stops and sees this, with the stairs being separated Composition with background I would like to aim one piece that can push my back. "
Motoyama "It is a design mainly based on digital manga.It is a composition that the writer is looking through the liquid crystal tablet under the circumstances where comic striping work is done.It is aimed at one piece that can support production."
Motoyama "We will create a complete image based on the proposed scheme 3. We will arrange colors roughly for each of the motifs that make up the illustration and we will examine the actual effects etc. The color scheme is GIGAZINE I chose the vibrant blue, yellow, orange, purple from the site color and logo mark.That is a slightly strange situation of seeing people from the liquid crystal tablet side, it is not a real coloration but a blue and It was planned to make a combination of orange, purple and yellow pairing colors. "
Motoyama "It's a line drawing work. Based on the finished rough idea, I will draw a polite line.Layers are divided for each motif so that the later coloring process is easy.The depth of the liquid crystal In the case of rough, I often start drawing from the shape of the head, but the pen holder needs places of concentration, such as eyes, while concentrating though it draws lines in order of tablet, right arm, person, background I will put it in. "
Motoyama "I will paint the color, paint over with a brush, let me blush using a blurring tool.I like the expression like liquid puddle and unevenness like a watercolor, so the brush customizes things like texture like watercolor In the dark part, it gives depth while keeping saturation with "multiplication layer" and "burning layer" etc. The bright part leaves a color with "soft light", "additional light emitting layer" etc. We will also give effects, while skin, hair, clothes and so on are layered separately, but each boundary is partially blurred and blended. "
Motoyama "Since I wanted to feel like I looked through the liquid crystal, I added objects to show contact points between the liquid crystal and the pen and things that were glittery in the sky and I will give you a feeling that is visible from" this side. " When painting is finished, apply a blur filter to the background and the right arm part in contact with the liquid crystal to make focus so that attention will be given to the person.Finally superimpose the picture material of the drawing paper in "soft light" mode from the top. By looking at the balance, it is completed by adjusting the sharpness of color with "tone curve layer" etc.
Motoyama "That's it, thank you for seeing it, I'm pleased if you have an illustration that can support you all a bit."
