Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today: Manga girl

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

~ Andy Warhol ~

In preparation for the next Creative Tuesday theme I sketched this little girl in pencil in my sketchbook and then inked it (with real paper and ink). I scanned it and have now started doing the coloring work in Photoshop. I am not calling this art (yet), because really all I am doing at this point is practicing.

I also wanted to let you know that at the moment I am not getting around to respond to all your lovely comments on my posts. Lots of work and I am actually preparing a business trip to Germany. I hope you know that I am not ignoring you. I read every single comment and I will definitely be visiting your site. That is, if you left a link in the comment form.

Please leave a link in the form when you are commenting, pretty please?!

I know it is not a mandatory field, because not everybody has a blog. However with all the creative blog names  a.k.a. not resembling your actual names, it can get very hard to find you in blogosphere. I have tried, trust me, I have. But there may have been one or two that despite my best efforts I couldn’t find. So, please be easy on me and leave your blog name, will you? Thank you so much.

Anyways, back to my little manga girl. With this picture I am trying very hard to work on perspectives. Do you notice how the thumb and hand are huge compared to the rest of the little girl? And especially also compared to the hint of a landscape only penciled into the background. I am using a bit more Photoshop instead of mostly my iPad. Here I used layers and clipping masks to do the partial coloring. Mind you, I am not done with this picture. Apart from the mentioned background, also lights and shadows are still completely missing, but – it is a start.

Thanks for watching and don’t forget to link up your creative work below!
