Magical Songstress Serissa

magical_songstress_serissa0001

I’m back with another magical girl! The Magical Songstress, Serissa~ She is a fairly distant girl who doesn’t talk much but is an amazing performer once she’s on stage and seems to take her job seriously. Serissa tends to spend any free moment she has on her phone though. No one knows exactly what she’s doing on it…

A little background of the setting… In this world I am making for these magical girls, they are essentially like pop stars or Japanese idols. A lot of them sing and dance but some of them also compete in sort of “sports” competitions. Serissa is a part of a small agency but is the most popular girl there, known for her amazing singing. Primula and Velvet are also a part of the same agency as her but they are newcomers.

As for this picture, I experimented with some lighting and glowing effects. I’m actually pretty happy with how the feathers came out on this, haha.

Magical Trickster Velvet

magical_trickster_velvet0001Another magical girl enters the scene! And just in time for Halloween! Though to be honest, I didn’t actually draw this with the intention of making it a Halloween picture. As it got closer to the date I figured, “Well, might as well save it for Halloween?” This girl’s name is Velvet, she is a magical girl who enjoys playing tricks on people instead of helping them. Though she might help you out if you really need it.

For this picture, I decided to try out some nighttime lighting. It was pretty interesting, I think I’m pretty happy with how the colors came out on this one. I also enjoyed drawing making this pose. The design of the outfit took a little while, I didn’t want to make something overly detailed but I also didn’t want it to be super simple.

Magical Girl Primula

magical-girl-primula0001Hello everyone! Today I am posting a picture that is a part of a series of illustrations I’m doing. I really enjoy magical girl shows and just generally coming up with characters so I thought designing my own magical girls (and boys? :3c) as a personal project might be a fun idea. The goal with this project is to *hopefully* be able to release some kind of art book with all the illustrations made from this.

This girl here is named Primula, she’s just starting her magical girl journey at the age of 17. The building in the back is the magical “agency” she’s apart of. If you are thinking, “Why does that kind of look like an office with a castle-like tower on it??”, I would tell you, because that IS an office building with a castle-like tower on it! In this world, magical girls & guys are a lot like Japanese idols. Whaaaaaat! Later I’ll have a post that gives a little more detail on the world of these characters but for now, here are some “process” pictures for this illustration.

imas_ranko0001

Hey hey! Decided to post some of the Idolm@ster pictures I’ve drawn. I had originally posted them on Twitter and Tumblr but never made a proper post for them on here… Also on a related note, I’m really enjoying Cinderella Girls! It’s a really good show and I find myself re-watching the episodes~ ( Β΄ β–½ ` )οΎ‰ I have to say, I am pretty happy with how this Ranko picture came out.

Hello Again! Plus New Art!

girlinthelobby

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I posted on here! Sorry about that… Let’s see if I can get back into the swing of things this year. Maybe that will be my New Year’s resolution, post more. If you REALLY want to see a lot of “updates” from me,I’m probably most active on Twitter right now but I plan on posting more sketches and such on here as well. As for site news, I updated the look of the site (wooo), going to add some more header images soon. I’m also going to try adding either a side bar widget or a page on here that shows what conventions I will be selling at for the year so, that should be up on here soon.

 

As for this picture, this is the most recent one I have finished. She’s not a particular character, just wanted to draw something where I wasn’t focused on the story or idea of the character. Played around with lighting and got some background practice in as well!
