Yoko Littner of Gurren Lagann
I painted this fan art of Yoko Littner of the anime Gurren Lagann back before Christmas 2018, with WIPs along the way. See some below, and remember at this stage anatomy is only implied (not too important yet).
I try not to paint in black and white, but straight into color from the first brush stroke. It helps to avoid muddying the colors.
Once I get something I like, I will use the refs I had found previously to render the figures and props. Also fixing any foundation issues which includes the anatomy, colors, perspective, composition.. etc.
As the painting starts to look more finished, I'll add any other elements such as pets, zippers, hair locks, seams on clothing and such. If the compostion still doesn't feel lively enough I'll continue to add related elements like the bullets and japanese cheery blossum petals.
If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments :)
