Yeah....that's one of the things that I'm currently trying to kink out.
As some of you may know, I'm a big fan of Kimi.
It's not exactly a hard notion to miss....I mean, take a look at my gallery, for example. Chock full of fanart of this character.
And some people may wonder, "Well, why her?"
Well, to be honest...I can't say.
I've probably been a fan of Kimi ever since "All Grown Up' premiered over 5 years ago. Since then, she has been somewhat of a muse to me. If ever I'm stuck on what to draw, if even just for kicks, I'll whip out the paper and try something with the Kimster.
Kimi has always struck me as the independent, slightly rebellious type. Those are traits I admire, and sadly traits that weren't emphasized too well enough on the show. What is clear, though, is that she marches to the beat of a different drummer...definitely not one to fall with the 'in' crowd (except when she sees fit, that is), she'd always tell you what's on her mind.
My drawing style with Kimi has evolved over the years.
Before, whatever I churned out would be close to the original in concept and form (though I occassionally revert from time to time). These days, my style takes a more detailed turn. Kimi's hair particularly. It's a bit wilder and more 'flowing' than my previous works. I've tweaked her face over time so that you can still recognise the character before you as Kimi, but it's more expressive than her traditional look.
This little portrait of Kimi shows how I draw her nowadays. Gone are the days of flat colour and sticking by the book in terms of her design- now, I think, I've put my own spin on how she looks, and stuck with it ever since.
I hope you guys like it. =)
