your art style strikes me as kind of square-like, but it's really fluid at the same time! it's boxy but not in a bad way at all, it makes everything seem really solid and tangible if that makes sense? your expressions and gestures make everything flow so well and everything is very structured without looking boring at all!
Hi, I'm making a lyric stuck, and I got kind of confused. How do you kept track of all the different panels when you make them? You draw them first on paper and then color it in sai?
To keep track of panels, I save them as a number.
Yes, I draw a thumbnail version of the lyricstuck on paper or sticky notes. (this doubly helps with keeping track of the panels) and it helps me visualize the whole lyricstuck, so my theme wouldn’t get lost in the actual process. I don’t scan it to SAI, but I just draw the sketch right on the canvas based on the thumbnail doodle.
are you still doing the style description thing? i love how you don't shy away from """ugly""" expressions, it conveys emotion beautifully. there's a certain solidness in your style as well; the rounded and square features you give really cements the characters in reality for me, if that makes any sense? you color wonderfully as well!
Yep, yep I’m still open for it ^u^ I just had a long napnap since I didn’t get enough sleep last night~
Thank you! Adding those extra wrinkles to a character’s expression I think really heightens emotions—and also goofy stuff which I really like drawing on my spare time :DDD
Very natural and light! "Light" in terms of the atmosphere it creates, like- if it was a gait, you'd be skipping along, barely touching the ground, rather than trudging. Vibrant and alive!! Highly developed and subtle facial expressions, that by no means carry the brunt of the expressiveness in your art. Your lines aren't crisp, they serve more as skeletons for the rest of the work than as clear-cut outlines. Rather than being a problem, this contributes to the natural feel of your work. :0
Thank you! ^o^ Cake and Skipping wowow this is charming~
and yeah I’m not very good at polished lineart, I tend to favor sketches and painterly work for that reason. I think it would be fun to try polished lineart though *u*
I'm sure this has already been asked, but it wasn't in your FAQ so I thought I'd make sure: do you mind if others do lyricstuck-inspired things? For example I was thinking of doing a lyrics-thing for a different fandom-- do you have a problem with that? Just trying to avoid stepping on toes, heh. Thanks!
Why would I have a problem with that? ^o^ I don’t own the artform.
