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!
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.
