A manga girl showing off her colorful, striped socks

Once again I decided to join the gang over at Creative Tuesdays with my drawing efforts. This time the theme is: STRIPED SOCKS.

As you know I am trying my hand very heavily at manga these days. But this lady here, at least right now, is at best manga-esque. Please welcome to our universe – Ayako.

I have given her a name, because I feel like I am going to develop her a little more, a character so to speak. I have already sketched a few other poses, but only in pencil so far. There’s a lot I like about her, so I have a feeling that she will make an appearance again. I hope we will all be friends.


Don’t forget to check out the other entries to this week’s Creative Tuesdays theme:





Ayako, manga, girl

    Love the bright colors.

  • Christine

    She is awesome Claudia!

  • Debbi Decker

    I want those socks.

  • lissa

    I like that her socks matches her hair, good take on the theme.

    have a lovely day.

  • Wanda

    Oh my she’s straight from a comic book….I would like to hear the rest of her story. Nice colors and very clean and crisp.

    • Claudia

      Thank you so much, Wanda. Unfortunately I am no writer, but – I’ll keep working on her.

  • Rorybore

    Love her!! So bright and colourful and the writer in me bets she has a personality to match. And now I want blue hair. 🙂

    • Claudia

      You really (!) are into colors these days, huh?! Purple, now blue – go ahead, girl, you can do this!

  • bocafrau

    LOVE! Her eyes got me. Hope all is well! xoxo

    • Claudia

      Oh really, her eyes? Thanks. That must mean they work 🙂 I’m just fine, thanks, Susi. Hope you’re getting closer to your dreamhouse…

  • Michael McV.

    Very crisp and definitely “manga-esque” as you put it! (Now, is that an actual word, actually?) 🙂

    I love her long stockings. She certainyl has the legs for it and her name is going to work great for Maga so keep it going.

    Thank you so much for joining us again. I’m glad you enjoyed the theme, Claudia. I love to see how everyone interprets our themes differently which you’ve definitely done here. That’s great.

    • Claudia

      German here! I don’t know if it is an actual, actual word, but I think it does have a meaning and you definitely get google hits when you search it 🙂
      Thanks, Michael, I really enjoy participating and seeing all the other interpretations (which I will finally be exploring… now!)

    Great drawing Claudia. I love that she is on a swing, with those lovely long striped socks.

    • Claudia

      That scene on the swing was my first thought when I read the theme. Well, I thought of the long stockings first and then the swing. Thanks, Linda.

    I like those socks 🙂

  • genie

    Your Magna Girl is up to all kinds of things these days. I am glad she is the one in the swing, because they make me sick….ever since I was a little girl. You have to love her colorful socks…vivid and bright. Nice picture. genie

    • Katherine Kerr

      I love your Manga girl, and her long legs really show off her striped socks. Love the picture.

      • Claudia

        Thanks, Katherine. Yeah, I think I may have gone a little overboard on how long her legs are, but – hey, it is anime = stylizing and I am still finding my style.

    • Claudia

      Awww, that is too bad that you get sick on a swing, they are such fun and I have the best childhood memories of ours.
      Thank you, Genie.

  • debsrandomwritings

    Hi Claudia, I love Ayako and her fantastic stripey socks andI love the way you’ve managed to get her body looking as if she really is swinging. Really brilliant.
