Lately I've been trying to improve my "fake screenshot" technique. I wasn't happy with the inks on my last practice piece, so I tried again with thinner inks. I think I've gotten a lot closer this time. The other trick is all the effects that modern shows use, but that will take a lot longer. Also, getting backgrounds right. Still got a ways to go there.

Why am I doing this? Well, I like the idea of replicating screenshots. I think it makes for an interesting style to create in. With a few modifications it also works for looking like promo pics or posters (like in Newtype). Also, I'm trying to replicate them by duplicating the techniques that are actually used to produce modern anime. I don't think I'd be doing any animation, but a deeper understanding of the hows and whys would be nice as well.

This is another original character, if you were wondering.

She's adorable :D. I love how the face turned out and her hair style, and I think you did a great job with she's squishing her breasts together.

Thanks! While I wanted to focus on getting the screencap look right, I didn't want to neglect anything else in the process.

Thanks! What I need to do (soon) is try this technique out in fanart, to see how close I get. I think I've got the basics down, and it's just a matter of tweaking the look. Oh, and all the other little bits of tidying that my art needs.
