So with all this recent inspiration, I decided to draw what I might look like as a moe anime usagi girl :) That's the explanation behind today's #Kawaii365 project:
So you may be wondering how she was drawn? Here is the process:
With a pencil, I drew a light, head-shaped outline until I got the angle right. Then I made some faint, quick lines to form her 'skeleton' for the body pose.
Then with a slightly darker pencil stroke (I used 2 pencils), I made the circular shapes and drew the basic face, hair style and clothes. From here I inked it with a black gel pen and let it dry.
And then my very favorite part - using the high-grade pencil crayons my husband Rob got for my birthday in February! I learned how to do this from a book about kawaii and manga art. My work isn't perfect, but it sure was fun to do (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
I'm also inspired by some of my fellow Patreon artists, who work very hard to be awesome!
