Emulation week 1

This week in character design, we were assigned to emulate an artist with a style completely different from what we normally draw in. Since I never draw anime, I decided to take a whack at it. So I emulated the Korean artist Hyung-tae Kim, specifically his work on Magna Carta. I feel like I got the anime look down alright, but not Hyung-tae Kim's look down. So I'll be trying this again soon! It was crazy fun. 
This is Suzume. She's a werewolf that has a hard time finding her balance between the animal world and the human world. She helps a mysterious party of renegade gypsies by using her ability to transform into a large wolf, but feels like she is more of a danger to the group than help. She is proficient at sword fighting as well as tracking. She rarely tells anybody her condition and trusts very few people.

Good job man! I didn't get to see yours in class cause I left a little early, but I like it :) what a cool story.

I still think this is rad, man. Totally legit anime, especially that sword. Only two suggestions: the right eye (her left) seems a bit too high, and I feel like the whole sword should be faded out with that atmospheric perspective stuff instead of just the top.

great drawing! i would have wanted to see her feet shrink a little, and if youre going for magna karta style, you'll want to make everything more bulbous, shiny, skin-tight and porn-ish :(

It's awesome!
