Miki in a Blue Dress by markcrilley Miki in a Blue Dress by markcrilley
I just completed this as part of my latest YouTube video, which you can view here:

I was happy with how it turned out, and wanted to give it a "second life" over here on DA, so I watercolored the original, touched it up in Photoshop, and voila!

I think Miki looks very stoic and determined in this pose. Or maybe she's just really peeved! ^_^

Your vids are so helpful! I'm watching the one that teaches you how to draw hands, and it's a lot better than my friends trying to help me!

If I can get to be a doujin artist, I am SO crediting you! *^^* I will DEFINITELY look for Miki Falls!

My friend wants to know why she's orange. She thinks it looks like she ate too many carrots.

I remember this picture. I watched you drawing it on youtube. Man, I love your work. I wish I could draw like that. I'm not so good with anime. So, I learn from your videos. I have a lot of them added to my favorites on my youtube account. ;)

wow! Miki-chan looks really cute in that dress ^-^

I've been watching your youtube vids for a while now, and I love them! and for the how to draw hair, when you said how you have the lines in the hair start from the tip of the hair and up, I found really helpful for my manga art ^^

and even though I've never read Miki Falls, I'm interested. although I don't think they have in in the Barnes and Nobel store in the mall here... but I'm going to check next time I go ^^

I love how you lined up your character with the sharp clear lines. Especially the hands and the dress--it's beautiful.

But I think what you can improve on is to make the shines a bit sharper and there's more light on the hair except the shine. I think that'd be wonderful. With more shadows and lights for detail. ^__^

Good luck with your comics too! =D

Whenever I paint with watercolour, the paint seems to pick up the black of the line work too. How can I make it so that it doesn't do so? :confused:
