This is really cool. It has the Japanese manga movie kind of look.

Noran said...

this is just pleasant to me eyes... really really pleasant.

i'm sure you get this a lot, but i'm gonna shoot anyway. how can you have no style at all in illustrating, but managed to do all the style that's required?

well i know, first answer, must have been: talent.
but all the drawings have significant differences in lines, strokes, coloring, stuff. what are your references?

i'm just curious. really. i wish i can do all kind of style like you. :)

sokkuan said...

hi Noran,

Thanks for your words! ('u')
emmm... when i do a different style, i imagine myself as an actress playing a different role in a different movie. But of course there are styles that i can't cope with. ha..

looking for reference and studying the reference is important, too.

cheers,

Hi Sokkuan,

though i never met you in person, but i always, always admire your illustrations. they are all awesome, you can be the illustration chameleon yet your sophie black character is so distinctive. super great!

cheers!
