Nana by MahmudAsrar Nana by MahmudAsrar
This one was especially made for my wife. She's a fan of the Anime series Nana and that's the inspiration for this sketch.

A lot of fun working on this one and I'm happy to say that she's liked it good enough to hang it on a wall in our home.

I've used Copic cool and warm grays for this and I feel it looks much better in real life even if I say so myself. The scan doesn't do justice to the tones on the original.

It looks amazing. I like how you've drawn her, plus I like how you kept the build of her body fairly the same as in the manga/anime even though you drew it comic styled. I think you did great. Plus I love Nana Osaki.

if nana was a graphic novel this is what she'd look like! Great job and a typical nana pose but really well executed in this style so thank you for sharing it and I'm glad your wife appreciated it
