Prize: Chibi Aki by Lady--Nyx Prize: Chibi Aki by Lady--Nyx
Pre-Contest prize for :iconoutcastkingdom:

She wanted a chibi of my OC Akimoto Tsubaki

I still havent got a set style for chibis, so i'm still experimenting :iconheehee-plz:

Here Aki is wearing the Kaibara High School uniform (from Fruits Basket). She went to school there for a while in Season 1 when she was temporarily in that world. I figured, hey, in some way or another, all of Aki's other outfits have been shown here on DA except this one, and thought that this was the best opportunity :iconchuuplz:

Aki has her shorter hair here because in Season 1, she had shorter hair X3

Thank you for participating in the pre-contest!
I hope you like it! :iconbigheartplz:

I first drew a sketch of it with my pencil then scanned it to my computer. Using Paint tool sai, i did the line art on a few layers and then colored it and made the background on GIMP and Manga Studio. took a few hours to do all of it ^^" Srry, i dont know how descriptive you want me to be =.= haha I'm glad you like it!

well, after scanning it, I use GIMP to change the sketch to a different color, by messing with the color levels, so that i wont get confused with the line art. and i make it brighter X3

then i go to paint tool sai and open it there. i first raise the resolution to 300 and enlarge the picture, making the biggest dimension 4000. then i use a lineart layer over the sketch and a separate one for the eyes, making sure that the line isnt exactly black but a little lighter.

once the line art is done, i select all of the areas that i dont want to color and then invert selection so that everything i want colored is selected. i paint over it with a color thats not going to be used for the real pic.

all of the coloring layers have to be clipped to that base color layer so that it makes it easier for you to stay inside the lines.

last i shade on more clipping layers and voila!

sorry if none of this makes sense...

turns out saying the steps is harder than i thought ^^"
