Below is the illustration making.

Torimome “We have created two rough drawings with the theme of“ Autumn ”and“ Manga Award ”this time.

A rough draft of a girl standing in a park where the autumn colors can be seen. Torimome 'I imagined a park full of fallen leaves because of autumn.'


The rough adopted is below. Torimome “This is the composition of a girl who wants to paint on the windows of a building. By taking a bird's-eye view, I gained momentum.”


Detailed rough with color image added. Torimome “It was a form of“ draft ”until the rough, but in the detailed rough, we will lay out the image so that the completed drawing will be clear. I want to feel a little more“ painting the world of girls ”straight I wanted to add more momentum to the composition, so I tried to scatter the paint forward


Correction instructions were sent as shown in the image below for the overall color scheme and details. In addition, because it is a challenging and difficult pose, the orientation of the shoulders and the position of the buttocks are adjusted for how to draw the human body.


Rough after correction.


Torimome 'It is a line drawing. Here, I will redraw it many times until the face of the person becomes cute, and fix the strange part of the object.'


Torimome 'I will put the color prepared in the detailed rough stage'


Torimome “I paint out the texture of each part and finally combine all the layers to add the missing parts and change the color in part. Thank you! ”
