Miku Hatsune

Day 3 of the 30 day art challenge.

I'm currently submitting this on January 2 instead of January 3, but because I'll be busy tomorrow, you get day three early. :D

For day three, I decided to finally do a sketch of Miku Hatsune. I've been wanting to do a painting of her for a while, but it didn't work out till now. Originally, I wanted to draw Kaito for day three, but the Kaito painting was taking longer than I planned to color so I painted Miku instead. Hopefully he'll be day four or five. (You'll get to see him eventually. Just be patient.)

This is the first time I used the paint brush tool in Gimp to do the line art. I usually do the line art with the ink tool because it behaves more like a mechanical pencil (my favorite drawing tool). Since this challenge is to improve my art skills, I wanted to try to use the paint brush for the line art only... and I really like how it turned out!

The only time I used the ink tool in this painting was for her lips because I knew it would cover the area I wanted it to in the way I wanted it to. The rest was colored with the fill bucket and shaded with the airbrush tool. :)

I like this one! :D
I think she looks very adorable and would appear on some of those Anime covers or even comic blogs that have been running around on the internet. You did a great job and I think besides her pigtails, my favorite is just the color scheme. :D
