IBARW: Follow-through 3
Three this time. And one of them even has color. OMG. (sort of.)
The general effect I was going for here was a cross between Chiho Saito (creator of the REVOLUTIONARY GIRL UTENA manga) and my usual art. I have no idea if I pulled it off, and I'm afraid I didn't do a good job of capturing Anita's character, regardless. :/
I went with the comics version because, while my first exposure was the cartoon, Milestone doesn't get enough recognition in the comics fan community. Another attempt to mix my usual method with another person's visual style; in this case, I was consciously aping John Paul Leon's early work on the original STATIC monthly. I think I succeeded.
Apparently, this set was the "experimental" set, because I really tried stretching my style in different directions for all of these drawings. Travis kind of demanded a bit of a change in artistic direction, being a real person and thus requiring a bit more attention to detail than the rest. I think I captured his likeness rather well.
