◆ July 2019 GIGAZINE Manga Award Top Art Illustration
The top drawing illustration of August 2019 was given by Mr. True Choko . The girl who enjoys the summer with all his energy is full of heartiness and conveys the fun of the summer which is not only hot.


The following is the making of illustration.

Machoko 'I prepared three rough drafts this time. I had a high degree of freedom, so I made a rough that changed the image in each case as much as possible.'

Rough A draft of the theme of 'draw the sea'. Machoko 'I expressed the transport of the paint of the brush as a wave, and expressed it. The clothes of the character also became a refreshing thing of the vitamin color that is Japanese and Western eclectic.'


A rough B draft depicting another side of summer under the theme of 'Tolhou passing guard'. Machoko 'This changes from the refreshing summer of plan A to a fresh summer, and I tried to draw a side of the moist summer of the summer of August. I like to mix variously, so here's a strange world view of the world It has become '


A rough C draft drawn on the theme of 'Summer enjoying girl'. Machoko 'Because it's a solid but still a girl with ice confectionery is cute. I feel like it was finished with a small amount of wrinkles.'


Among the rough drafts, while adopting the theme of C draft where heat and pleasure are well transmitted, it became a form of having a sense of liveliness interspersed with the pose and expression of the A draft. Click here for the final version rough that you have adjusted.


Machoko 'This time I will not use a line in the background, so the line drawing is only a person. Basically, when drawing a line drawing, I draw in a clear black at first, and then a method to make the color tress to match the paint later and get familiar I always draw in


Machoko 'I separate layers for each color and perform priming. I draw a pattern by clipping.'


Machoko 'I paint around the face to some extent and make a standard of painting, then I will paint it over and over in order to balance evenly. From here I will clean up finally'


Machoko 'I put the white of the border of the person, put some adjustments, and finished the painting. After that, I will apply things like ambient light and effects, and adjust the more anxious places.'


Lastly, I added a background, a summery glaring effect and water drops on the background. It is fun because it is a scene that changes visibly and visibly. We will fix it and fix the details, it's done. Thank you!
