A Late Trend

To be fair, when I actually did the art, it was still a current trend. But as usual I’m late in writing about it again.

What am I talking about?

A few months ago there was a trend in the online art community of redrawing the blue-haired boy from the cover of an old classic “How To Draw Manga” book.

A lot of people had the book as kids, and it was a nostalgia thing. I never had it, but I love hopping on bandwagons.

I can’t remember where I first saw it, but Naomi Lord did it…

…and DoodleDate did it…

…so I did it too.

Here’s the cover in question.

And here’s my sketch.

And here’s my final piece.

He’s mildly derpy-looking, but most things I draw are. I think he’s cute nonetheless. What do you think?
