ya sensei I hope for the same
My only contribution to this fandom are crappy boring unfinished head-shots. I am sorry!! /o/
I was working this picture for a pendant design of Juli but I think it might not work for my concept I still have to do some print tests to see how I need to work with these given the size of the cabochon setting. Muse said it looks creepy, its just the red bg. uuuueeeh I can’t never get Juli’s stern look right.
I thought this woman was interesting. (I left out the part where she explains to Jeremy exactly what a shithouse rat sicko Greg is). People who care about Jeremy’s well-being never seem to stick around long, but it’s too bad they didn’t cross paths again like with Valentine.
I was talking about Moto Hagio’s good variation on facial shape here, but I think the way she varies women’s body types is noteworthy as well. Definitely not the norm for shoujo.
Again, these are all side characters from her manga A Cruel God Reigns.
One of the things that’s appealing about Moto Hagio’s art is that she does not suffer from “same-face syndrome” (discussed all over the place here) the way that so much shoujo does. Stuff gets varied down to the hairline, eye shape, jawline, nose, and most especially, eyebrows. I love dem eyebrows. I could rave about her for days but one thing I especially appreciate is this aspect of her art.
All of these are side characters (sans Ian, who’s a main character) in her work “A Cruel God Reigns”.
