Maka Albarn by godsavant Maka Albarn by godsavant
Another random game drawing, this time Maka Albarn, from the Soul Eater manga/anime franchise. Apparently it's a good show, or whatever, but from what I've read, its "demon buster school" premise does not interest me.

Also, drawing fanart like this really helps to notice the nuances in character design:

-Maka's eyes have no pupils, which are often replaced by dashed lines.

-Her face is designed rather strangely; her cheeks are much rounder than other anime females', and has a significantly upturned nose.

-She has two layers of eyebrows, with the frame of her eyes cresting over the entire eye, which usually forms a smooth oval with the iris when she is looking in another direction.

-There is not an agreed-upon length for the hem of her cloak, with some fanart making it as flowing as Batman's cape, while others barely extend it past her skirt.

-Most all of the male characters have saggy eyes, and all of the characters scowl most of the time with exaggerated frowns at weird mouth angles.

-As you can tell, I got bored and sloppy by the time I started drawing her torso and lower body, not nearly as clean as the hair and face.

You've got an awesome "posterized" kind of shading style. *enviousface*

VERYAWESOME

Thanks! Though I'm not sure what 'posterized' means...Are you referring to the limited color palette?

Nice guess, my friend, but no, this was done in Photoshop (*sheds a tear*); I've no idea how to achieve rough textures in Tegaki. All my work done in Tegaki can be found in the "Tegaki" folder in my Gallery sidebar.:)

Oh, I was just messing around~
There's a band called Blur, and the lead singer's name is Damon Albarn.

Blur? Wasn't that the band that spun off into Gorillaz?

1337Kyte Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2009
Well, the lead guy went and made Gorillaz with comic book artists Jamie Hewlett, after Blur broke up.
Blur is way cooler, though :D

Thank you, I did have to bail out and give her pupils to make things look better.(-3-)

I had to redo the scythe, like, three and a half times before it looked remotely smooth or usable.
