Study in Chibi

FullSizeRender 2

Hello, everyone! So, I’m back with more of a personal updo. I was experimenting with different chibi styles and thought that I would share my attempt.

Manga and anime has not always been my forte, as I work mostly with realism. However, I have been liking various cartooning styles, one of them most recently being chibi.

Here is a piece of digital art I just created focused around chibi style. I decided that I would do a simple and well known character, and the first one that struck my mind was Alice! I thought that it turned out fairly well for some first tries. I did notice that because of my realism background, I kept steering towards a realistic body and not so much of the fat and chubbiness that chibi’s usually possess. At first, I was concerned and forced another style into my art, but then I just went with it. So, yes, my chibi bodies are longer and slimmer than most, but I wanted to steer away from the whole “kawaii” and super chubby, cute factor. It still is cute, but not overwhelmingly fat and cute. I do hope that this style worked out; I put a lot of shadow focus into it. All in all, I think that Alice still has the whole “chibi” aspect to her.

I hope you enjoyed my ideas at the style of chibi. I am looking forward to posting my other attempts at cartooning and such. If you have any other ideas you’d like to share, feel free to comment!
