AnoHana by Jamie-B AnoHana by Jamie-B
Brilliant character design in this show! One of the rare non-shounen animes in which the male cast are as strong and numerous as the females (I could probably count the rest on one hand). Also all the manly tears AnoHana evokes go without saying.

This sketch posed a lot of challenges; there's three characters casting shadows and interacting physically in the scene - not to mention all the radiosity from Poppo's neon shirt - and it's always tricky to draw side views. I have progress shots of the colour process, so I'll compile a walkthrough to how it was made when I get a moment.

What an adorable group picture. :'D Poppo is awesome! Great job on this.~
As a tip, you can apply some texture to the flower brush to allow it to blend in a little more with your lovely watercolours. c:

Thanks! I was too worn out to go hunt for a good texture after all the drawing, but the flowers are multiplying onto the existing paper, believe it or not - I do agree entirely that they need some proper texture to fit in, though.
