Thank you for commenting. :3
Omnificent: Thank you! I'm sorry that I draw such subjects so often, but it's my passion, and Mr. Hirasawa and company have features that are fun to draw.
Alright, I'll give you a list!
濱田 (walking on eggshells, but she liked it!!) MG (based on a slightly simpler style that's used sometimes, mainly MG's art is very detailed and if I tried for that I would still be working on it.) KARMO (with a great style that's impossible for me to emulate correctly! So great!) ちょりろ (this one was also kind of messed up, haha...) ノロ助 rayrin D4FTIIDX
And, because I am still shocked by this, the fanart that MG drew for me! 1 2
In case you are wondering about the colors, that's how I used to color things, usually. Back when I was focused on being like Prio
Persium: Well, glad you recognise some of what I go on and on about, hahahaha! Also, any comments are okay, even if they aren't very constructive.
Thank you! However, there is no "anime" style. It just means "animation". By how it actually means, Looney Tunes is anime. Even if you are talking about Japanese works, they still come in many different styles! My style, by the way, is currently a combination of several Japanese artists I like and Golden Age American cartoons.
If you want advice on expressive faces, try to draw from life even if the style isn't realistic. For example, what I see about Mr. Hirasawa... He has thick eyebrows of course, his nose goes inwards a lot at the top of the bridge, his top lip juts out kind of strangely, etc., etc. So, I just draw what I see. It’s okay to exaggerate, everybody being generically pretty isn’t really my goal here... Another example because I feel like talking a lot! Paul McCartney. He’s got big eyes that always seem half-closed, ridiculously high eyebrows, and such. Also, personality has a big effect! I’ve always thought Paul was truly a creep under all those smiles and love songs (think of his non-love songs, like Eleanor Rigby or Maxwell’s Silver Hammer) so he kind of has this “fakeness” about him. For John, I guess, he’s a troll who has a perfect troll face, so forget the fact that he was a really handsome fellow, it’s important that personality shows through.
Also, I am a disciple of the aforementioned Prio, and when he draws, emotion and personality triumph over generic prettiness, hahaha!
As well, I study cartoons that aren’t just plain things like moe anime. Satoshi Kon had a realistic style to his movies and TV show, and he and his animation team were amazing at contorting the characters for scenes that required it. I recommend his show Paranoia Agent, also for the really cool plot and writing and obviously fantastic soundtrack by Mr. Hirasawa :3
Went off on a huge speech there. I apologize. Here is an anime girl, just like I promised:
Her parents were revealed recently, looking nothing like Mr. Hirasawa and Jun. Thus, the fandom went bonkers.
My... Headcanon... Is still real... In my heart...
