For the last six months, I’ve been working on Character Design for my brother and my fiction book. Also, I’ve been working on characters for a manga I’m writing called “Lost in the Crowd”. I’ve never really done character design before starting these two projects, so to compensate for my lack of character design skills, I’ve been filling up sketchbook after sketchbook with face studies trying to see which version feels right for that character and to rule out the ones that don’t. This study of Nana Kato (katouchan) feels close to the vibe of one of the main characters, Yuki. I will be posting a lot more Yuki study sketches over the next few months. I can’t wait to start illustrating the first volume. Let me know what you think. Hope you’re having a wonderful day.
