Happy Birthday Hajime!

Posted Feb 15, 2017, 11:31:56 PM

Hajime from Skillshotlabs‘ awesome app game Notice Me Senpai had a birthday on the 26th of November, and birthday or not, I REALLY wanted to draw one of my favourite senpai’s with his favourite cafe item- the Japanese Taiko drum.

Had to do a bit of research to find some good references of the drum, and I fought to get his contagious smile the way I like it, but I made it!

      He's super lovely TuT He's a bottled up ball of joy and energy. I love his character so much ^^

    He's not a bad looking guy, that's for sure! Great job with his hair, it looks really smooth. The drum certainly benefited from the research~

      Heheh... he ended up being my boyfriend in the game XD He's such a lovely, warm hearted and energetic guy Big Smile

      I've been doing more non-straight haired characters in my art lately. It takes a much longer time to draw but I really like the results ^^

      I don't think I could've drawn the drum without researching it to be honest. I'm working with tiny chibi which is way smaller in the game than the attached image is. I really needed bigger images to work with. Atleast with the characters you go full sized CGs to work with http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/noticemesenpai/images/b/b2/Image-1480092175.png/revision/latest?cb=20161125164255 it was just a matter of imagining the character in my style at that point Smile

        Fun that you played as the character you liked, you'd get to see him all the time~

      Thank you ^^ I've been putting a lot of effort into learning how to use more punchy colours Smile I think I'm finally starting to get use to them now :)
