Drawing Digital Images: It's the Process!

I've been working on designing my own digital images for a few weeks and I have to tell you, I'm pretty proud of the progress I've made to improve my drawing. Of course like everything else, I do things my way!

First I have to say that I am very big on collecting books on the subject of drawing Mangas. My latest addition is really cool. "Shojo Fashion Manga Art School Year 2," has a world of ideas for unique and colorful clothing to help me create my characters.

While concentrating on these images I also copied by eye without guidelines and discovered my eye is pretty good! Taking the characters from the book and making them my own is a lengthy process, but I'm in love with the results. So check this out:

Using the light box over the good copy of my image, I made a template.

I used Prismacolor and Gamsol on my finished images, which were first drawn in pencil and then gone over with a black Pigma Micro Pen #01.
