started Your Lie in April a few days ago and OH MY GOD WHY AM I ABOUT TO CRY OVER AN
ANIME I BINGE-WATCHED ON NETFLIX??? TT__TT
So yeah, I'm a fan. And yeah, that means fan art.
I worked on this sketch while starting the series again (yes, I
apparently enjoy pain) and after a day or two I ended up wtih something
I really liked. I scanned it in and started inks on Kaori but
felt the lines I was drawing just weren't cutting it. If you know
me I don't like inking and I especially don't like inking when it takes
that "flavor" out of the pencils. And that emotion and energy was
something I definitely did not want to lose in this pic so I decided to
trash the inks and work right off the pencils.
Cleaning up the sketch and picking what to keep and what to erase was
tough but for me it's a lot more fun than inking. It also helped
a lot in coloring because even though I didn't plan for this the extra
lines and smudges help a lot with shading and highlighting. The
messy lines also seemed to boost the glow effect I was going for when I
put a lot of the highlight layers on top of the pencil layer.
I try to be humble with my art, but I think the result is a new
personal best. One I don't think I'm gonna be topping for a
