I’m sorry for the lack of updates, trying to get my life together while organising the storyboard for the first Mai’s chapter.
However, I’ve been noticing that I’m OK with the characters’ faces, but their bodies are bothering me. What I want is a more loose cartoony style. As you can see, they have cartoony faces and rigid anime-ish bodies. I’ve distanced myself from standard big-eyes-tiny-nose-rigid-body anime art for a while and started looking at existent cartoons on TV, reading webcomics and graphic novels, reading bunches of tutorials WHILE observing and researching different body types because Mai’s cast is fairly diverse (pun intended).
Do you have any tips or critiques to my work so I can improve? Please note that this humble ask does not apply to the rest of my characters. Just browse the tag #maiverse on my tumblr so you can see who I'm talking about here, okay?
