We are pleased to let you know that Hana Doki Kira is going to be making it’s debut at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival! We will have copies of the book for everyone to view.

Annie Stoll, Rebecca Mock & Lindsay Cannizzaro (Year 85’res) will be at table #208 with Hana Doki Kira as well as their individual personal projects. We will be sharing our table with fellow comic artist Maritsa Patrinos

Other contributing artists to HDK that will be at TCAF are: Megan Brennan (table #227), Leslie Hung (table #268), Sloane Leong (table #156), Kris Mukai (table #246), Carey Pietsch (table #146) and Tim Ferrara (as attendee, table #208). Make sure you say hello and support all of our artists!

Annie, Rebecca & Lindsay will also be selling extra Hana Doki Kira posters, tote bags, and postcards. Any money raised by the sale of these items will go towards covering any extra shipping costs that come up from the kickstarter. Any extra money after that will be equally split and added to the money that each participating artist will be receiving.

We are all very honored that TCAF is allowing us to debut the book at their amazing festival. We will have books on display all weekend for everyone to look though. In addition, we will have 50 advance copies of Hana Doki Kira for sale to make it an official debut.

Here’s a little tip in how you can make light blonde hair appear “shiny” in B/W drawing or comic pages. 

Use thin lines and make sure they follow the direction of the hair and/or head shape. Also have some space between the lines so they don’t appear too dark (like for example around her bangs).

Man I love inking comic pages. It’s a bit different from just doing lineart ya know? <3

Foervraengd: How to draw a sparkly Shoujo-Manga Eye!

foervraengd:

foervraengd:

Time for a mini-tutorial! This is how I do really sparkly manga-eyes! I use a 0.05mm fineliner here, so the eye is just slightly bigger than my thumbnail actually.

image

Start with an average base for the eye. I use several strokes instead of one thick line. Trust me, the effect will be better doing this.

image

Add the eyebrow and upper eyelid.

image

Time to draw the iris, don’t close the circle here, instead leave one or two gaps, this will be used later for some reflections.

image

Add the pupil, don’t cover it in black or close the circle.

image

Now it’s time for delicious eyelashes! Draw the lower lashes with some space between each other.

image

After that, add shorter lashes between the gaps in order to create really thick lashes!

image

Now do the same with the upper lashes. But this time draw them longer at the left corners of the eye.

image

Fill the rest with shorter lashes.

image

Time to focus on the iris again. I draw a light outline for a reflection that goes over the pupil a bit.

image

Adding the main reflection, note that I added the reflection of the eyelashes to cover the reflection a bit. This is totally optional, I added it because I like to have a realistic touch to it.

image

Now I add eyelash-reflections on the iris as well, don’t make them cover too much of the iris.

image

TIME FOR HATCHING WOOOO! This is how you really create that typical shoujo-sparkle-desu effect. Draw several strokes around the iris, make sure that they get smaller/thinner at the lower part of the iris. And remember to not cover the reflection as well.

image

As you can now see, I’ve jumped over the reflected areas to make sure they wont disappear in all the hatching.

image

Use simple hatching over the pupil without making it all black. We are almost finished!

image

Added some last crosshatchings around the eye and the eyelids, do quick and very light strokes for this - otherwise it will turn out overdone. If your fineliners are starting to “die” you can save them for these sorts of effects, since the lines will be more fainted but still visible.

Now we’re done! Now go draw sailor moon!

Reblogging a 2 and a half year old tutorial!

I actually completely forgot I used to draw eyes like this… I should start doing that again, it looked pretty cool now when I look at it.
