MERRY CHRISTMAS. I know, right? I never draw. I only draw on rare occasions...and every year I try to draw a character for my brother for his present. I never saw Oreimo, but he really likes it, so I decided to draw Kirino. :) I used this scan as reference. Mostly for her face/hair and some of the pose. >>' For some reason, I decided to really go the Christmas route and give her a Santa outfit. XDD And I didn't want to draw the hand as it was in the scan, so I did my best to make it look like she's holding the present sack lol. I had my mom pose to help out. I hate hands. >>''' [also, I HATE THAT CANDY CANE]
I scanned in my drawing (that's the original sketch), and then went to work with coloring. ;__; Why on earth I decided to vector it all...I don't know...but it took a long time. >>' And was very annoying. I wasn't totally consistent with the outlines, but I think it looks fine. XD Actually, I'm quite proud. I can't believe I drew this lol. But this took a lot out of me...hence my rare drawings lol. Still...I really like how it turned out. :] Stupid-looking candy cane and all.
Hopefully my brother will appreciate this. >>
