She’s the face of this illustration blog – wayoftheartchemist

She’s a character I’ve imagined up for a manga, been drawing her alot, refining her, she’s called Blossom, a working name but it works fine for now coz its so pretty and sums her up. Here she is- the best yet!

The blossoming singer, guitar hero of inspirational and empowering New Age Rock music

I’m very happy with her, she’s radianting with self confidence and character. I’ve been drawing her for a while now keeping this short hairstyle that I like over the years. Painting techniques to make her skin look more realistic I discovered the smudge tool which I used to good effect and good control.

I made her the face the mascot of this blog, she’s there to welcome you at the homepage. I’ve got big ambitions for Blossom, I want to use this picture as the cover for a illustration book that I’ll get out as a collection of my manga artwork over these 3 years.

Let me know what you think about her and her name, do you like it? does it sound right/good? Have you got another suggestion of a good name, let me know please.

Here’s a look at the way she’s evolved over the years with 2 past drawings of the same girl I was trying to portray.


About Way of the Artchemist

Love of manga/anime, telling of stories in film and tv around sci-fi and fantasy, has influenced me to draw in the way that I do and, it's these interests that led me to the alternative media and made me question the nature of reality; exploring the ideas around consciousness, and the philosophies of life.
