OL Group by wbd OL Group by wbd
Meet the team!

Art Notes:

I felt like trying to draw some real sorts of hairstyles, but in an anime form. It can be pretty tricky- I enjoyed doing it, but I learned how a lot of real life styles would be hard to animate (or draw regularly in a comic) and have awkward angles if drawn. I tried to simplify things a bit to help that out. That led to another problem- when simplified, a lot of styles end up looking alike (when in real life they'd be quite distinct).

As for the theme, I decided to draw OLs, and these are all original characters (if you were wondering). I think they all are interesting, but top middle has a special appeal to me.

Wow, cool challenge you set yourself. I think you handled it really well. Each has a distinct look. Always interesting to see how you can shape a character just by the hair. If I had to pick a fav, it would be bottom right.

Thanks! I wanted to try this out and see what would happen. It was a good learning experience, as well as a good challenge. I'll have to try drawing some more of them later.

It's a Japanese abbreviation for "Office Lady".

Man.... they're beauties but amongst all the girls you made, Shiori has my heart! I admit it!

In fairness to any of my other characters, I haven't drawn nearly as much or told as many stories with them in it. Glad you appreciate Shiori, of course!
