Rukia and Kagura (2009) - lineart, character sketches, and composition
I like to do character sketches first to feel out their anatomy. Every character is different, and I don’t just mean the size of their breasts. =p Some artists fall back on the same curvy body type every time, but I find that to be a little bit boring. In the case of these two, Kagura is a very athletic and sporty character, with thicker proportions that Rukia, so I wanted to make sure that came across in the picture. (Note also how they compare to the taller, fashion-model-proportioned woman from the “Sunlit Veranda” image.)
Once I felt I understood Rukia and Kagura’s individual characteristics, I worked up the composition for the picture. The concept is Rukia is touching herself while she watches Kagura having sex with some guy.
