◆ March 2019 GIGAZINE Manga Awards Top Illustration
I got NOEYEBROW Mr. NOEYEBROW for illustration of the top picture in March, 2019. The atmosphere feeling warmth is very comfortable, yet it is a wonderful piece that feels nostalgic. What brought you a boy who came to see a sparrow?


I got a comment from NOEYEBROW .

NOEYEBROW (No Eyebrow) who took charge of illustrations in March.
I draw illustrations focusing on boys.
I like the nostalgic scene that reminds me of my deeply remembered childhood memories.
As the warmer season comes soon, I expressed warmth with the theme of breakfast.


Below is the making of illustration.

NOEYEBROW "I will draw the image roughly in monochrome.The theme is determined to be" breakfast "" veranda. "Recently I like shooting a big shadow on the character and I like a weak wide-angle lens, so this time In such a constitution, a sunny veranda, a shadow falling sharply on the roof and a big shadow, a character and a background will assimilate with a shadow at that time, so put sunlight from the back window I gave an effect to compare my feeling. "


NOEYEBROW "Since the composition and light and darkness are decided, we add a temporary color and we will gradually ride the colors we have imaged, so we decide the color scheme based on the yellow which has a little greenness in the morning as it is time for breakfast. It seems that the pajamas are good, so it's blue, so the whole is yellowish so you can make color difference here and make the character stand out. "


NOEYEBROW "Since I can arrange and composition most of the items, I will do a fair copy, I will draw in the decided part and add and scrape items while watching the balance.The perspective is also to some extent here I will fit it to be unnatural. "


NOEYEBROW "I will arrange everything beautifully while paying attention to the size feeling and the purse.It will gradually raise the real feeling while using texture and brush for each texture etc. Finally it is completed by blurring the room in the back "
