Summer breeze by Rikae Summer breeze by Rikae
EDIT: OMG, Thank you for the DD and all your support! You are amazing! You can see prep sketches for this page at rikaedraws.tumblr.com/post/892…

IT'S OOOOON! My project which I had been planning for a year now has finally seen it’s first pages! I actually started this blog just so I can post updates an wasn't able to start for so long! I’m STILL planning a lot of things but I’ll at least try to draw the intro while planning the rest of the script.

Isn't it just so nice and summer-y?

I’m also missing a line here, but I’ll update later and also show you sketches and more! :w00t: :boogie:

I used maru pen/ink/screentones(traditional).

And I'm not the orthodox type to say manga should be drawn with this or that tool because it has the word "manga" on it..or for any other reason....but I got my hands on this deleter manuscript paper..AND.IT.IS.AWESOME!!!! It's so smooth but not too smooth, absorbs quickly but doesn't make huge ink blots, is super durable and withstands almost anything! Just so AMAZING!

Hope you like! ^^

This is one of my favourites on your gallery. Such a calm and soothing atmosphere, you expect the skirt to start swaying in the wind every second.^^
Plus the light strokes give it a sunny feel. :heart:

Thank you, I'm happy you feel that way ^^ It's a lightness and (near) transparency I wanted to capture. Because the girl is very delicate but also because this is a memory in someone's mind.

I'm amazed that this was done completely Traditionally! It's amazingly well drawn, and is deffinately deserving of a Daily Deviation.(I know it got it yesturday, but I just saw it now)

Great job on drawing the background, especially the sand!

Thanks! I prefer traditional when it comes to inking and screentoning-it's just so much more fun! :D The sand just seemed to "happen" on it's own, I used I nice tone that looked like sand :) Lucky me!

She seems lonely. ): And waiting for someone, but he doesn't come.

Ah, I see, makes sense. I guess in a composition like that the fact that you're looking at a person's back and seeing a lot of landscape makes for a bit of a melancholy feeling. It's nice that it's a bit of a mystery so everybody has different feelings for the drawing. I like that :)

Wee~l, you don't have to, if it's not your thing. I mean, if you're really good at minimalist stuff for example. And if a style like mine suits you, then you probably will, with a bit of persistence  and if you want to ^_^
