My interest in Chibi’s really got started when I was watching Hunter X Hunter with my boyfriend. I was slow to watching it because I thought it looked kinda lame. But I finally gave it a chance and it’s become one of my favorite anime’s. At the end of the episodes two of the characters show up in Chibi form and they’re SO CUTE!
I also love this style of conveying emotions. And now I wanna make my own! Below is some of my Chibi practice so far.
These next two are my most recent and I see a lot of improvement in them from when I started.
I don’t make their heads quite big enough, which throws everything off from there. They’re just SO CUTE! I love that one with his tongue sticking out. Who else watches Hunter X Hunter? Who’s your favorite characters?
I can’t believe It’s been over a month since my last blog post. I’ve been busy working on getting my photo blog ready to launch. I’m happy to say that I’m almost done creating my first collection of photos. I’m thinking it’ll be ready by the beginning of February.
I woke up singing The Long Run by the Eagles. I tell you, taking photos from 2001-2020 and compiling them to create my online gallery has definitely been a long run. I’ve got some great images though and I can’t wait to share them.
Aside from my photography, I’ve gotten very interested in drawing Chibis. In Japanese, the word Chibi means very short. I think they’re sooo cute and I have a lot of character ideas that are perfect for the cute Chibi style.
I bought this how-to-draw book by Mark Crilley. I watched his preview video and decided it’d be a good book to add to my home library. I’m just getting started so I’m not ready to show any of my drawings yet. I’m having a lot of fun drawing them so if you’re also interested in learning this cute style, then I highly recommend his book to get you started.
