What? Why are you looking at me like that?
Yes, I ended up creating yet another drawing of Mai Shiranui (maybe I’m a little obsessed after all). I don’t think it will be the last, either. However, this time, I actually drew her torso as well. Good on me! I don’t think the proportions are quite right (her head seems a little big to me), but I think it turned out okay. If I could fix it, I probably would.
It seems like I have been having some issues with proportions lately. Admittedly, it has been a while since I’ve drawn this much. I also used to draw male heroes a lot as a kid (not the superhero kind; mostly of the Dragon Ball or Yu Yu Hakusho variety), so I didn’t draw that many women. In other words, it’s still kind of new to me. Had art remained as my primary passion in high school, I probably would have more experience in this area.
I’m sure I will eventually figure out my process. Sometimes when drawing Anime, manga or video game women (or men, for that matter), the standard rules of human proportions don’t really apply. To a degree, that is also true here (to say nothing of Mai’s often “exaggerated” proportions).
Regardless, I hope you’ve been enjoying my creations. There is definitely more to come!
