The time has come to do another fanart character reveal that I created for my favourite YA series ever!
Last time, I showed off my first piece of Cinder! You can check out that post here. And since Cinder was #1 it only makes sense that the second half of the glorious OTP be fulfilled next! Yep! Today it is all about Prince Kaito of the Eastern Common Wealth a.k.a Sassmaster KAI!!!
*lots of cheering, especially from Peony!*
Let me tell you about drawing Kai. So Cinder was done really fast. I found some great reference pictures that I wanted to use. Then came Kai and I also had a bunch of reference pictures that I wanted to use.
So I drew Kai. AND THEN I ERASED IT SO FAST BECAUSE IT WAS HORRIBLE.
Then I drew Kai again. AND I ERASED IT AGAIN, BECAUSE OMG I AM NOT DOING MY SASSY PRINCE ANY JUSTICE.
Then I drew Kai for a third time. I changed the style of his hair, the shape of his nose, his jaw line. Basically everything. And then I did the worst thing possible and outlined in black! #mistake.
So I fixed and tweaked. And fixed and tweaked. And fixed and tweaked some more…to finally be satisfied with a final product. I still think that I could have done a way better job…I might retry these characters when I’m older and have honed better proportion skills. But I am happy with it!
So without further ado…..Kai!
*My crummy camera skills are clearly not helping, but the weather has been so gloomy so it is hard to get enough natural light*
Ahhh! There he is. Don’t ask me where I was going with the clothes. I honestly can’t remember, so I just coloured it in red! XD I tried guys. I am happy with it, though one day I will revisit drawing these characters and do a much BETTER job of my favourite sassy prince!
Let me know what you think! Do you think Kai looks decent(ish)? What character reveal are you looking forward to most? Have you ever dabbled in any fanart?
