So I drew these traditionally about a year ago, and decided to revisit them digitally. They’re from Mark Crilley’s book “Mastering Manga” and I do see some improvement. If I can find where I put the old ones, I’ll post them too.
This is from the Manga book I was using a year ago. “Mastering Manga” by Mark Crilley. Highly recommend.
Wanted to re-attempt. It did feel… slightly easier? And it does look a little better than the original, but this one is digital as opposed to traditional so I’m not sure what impact that had.
Picture of my friend Kat Bolado as a superhero. From two different reference photos – one for the hair and face, and one for the pose.
Think I’ll make this a benchmark piece and redo it annually to see how I’ve improved.
