View Full Version : My Daughter as a cute chibi

I was admiring the simplicity of another user's work here (shugmonkey) and he suggested I try getting out of my 'photorealistic' box. I've worked with coloured pencils, conte pencils and pastel sticks for many years, mainly portraits but the occasional still-life or fantasy piece.

I decided to try something totally new with ArtRage so, after discussions with my children and my wife, a 'Cartoon Strip' was thrust upon me. I have never drawn a cartoon in my life, but was assured that Manga 'Chibi' style would suit my simplification needs, so here is my first effort - my daughter as she used to look about 10 years ago :D
