Fantastical Manga-styled illustration
A typical magical girl in japanese manga style!
I had to do a few sketches until I had one I was happy with for this Japanese Manga-styled illustration. It's easy to see how I took the sketch and corrected a few pose details with the second iteration. Being happy with it I worked on my inks.
The coloration was relatively straight-forward with color-filling the different areas. The shadows are cell-shaded first and then softened up in certain areas. I ended with going for a yellow tint for the whole piece.
