For colouring the kindergarten girl, I used mainly Letraset Tria markers. To intense the contrast of light and shadow, I took a darker coloured pencil than the shadow part and traced the edge between light and shadow. Towards the shadow parts I faided out the darker colour to its original shadow tone, whereas drawing a sharp edge towards the light part.
I'm glad the girl has become sweet (I don't often draw children). It was my intention to draw a simple, cheerful and light-hearted artwork.^__^
„50 MANGA BABES to draw and paint“ is an English How-to-draw book displaying fifty artworks of different women in manga style along with step-by-step illustrations, detailed descriptions and drawing tips.
I got the wonderful commission to draw fifteen of these "babes" (have a look at the right column).
I had to meet following criteria: drawn in manga style, female character, view of the whole body, related to a topic/character type, no background.
This book is great and I can recommend it to all who learns to draw in manga style.

I also did some cartooning from 1960-63. The real trick is to develop your own style. Great job!
