I’ve sketched the variations of Black Rose from .hack// a few times but I haven’t painted her in color yet. This time i was working out how much time an image like this would take which was about 3 hours of active work and a few hours of tinkering on and off.
I had fun making sure her details were correct. I also decided to try painting the character all on one layer. I think that certainly helped in my time management. I think it will also help in keeping the resource usage down when I work on my tablet.
Below you’ll find some of my other sketches of Mimiru.
