I wanted to take a shot at drawing facial lines, and since my girlfriend’s face had nice lines, it was a perfect subject. I never got good at this style, but I really like the effect it has. Not nearly as cartoony or 漫画っぽい as the way I usually do stuff.
I don’t have any touched up versions of these, these are the only images I have. (I wonder if there are sketch books just sitting in my old kit bags somewhere…?)
Comparing both of these now, I think I like the second one more — but that’s probably just because of the expression.
