星を追う子ども (Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below)
Too many characters to fit into the title bar xD
These two characters are Shun and Shin. They are twin brothers (I'm PRETTY sure they're twins...not like you can tell from this picture lol) from Makoto Shinkai's newest movie. His movie premiered at Otakon just last weekend. He also held a Q&A panel, as well as an autograph session. I had the honour of meeting this genius animator-artist-director-storywriter so here is my tribute to his wonderful work. ^^
(I should also mention that this time around, someone ELSE designed his characters for him, which is why they actually look decent LOL. *bricked* )
Rough sketch on paper. Lineart and colour done with Paint Tool SAI. Tweaking done in PhotoShop CS5. This took about 2-3 days on and off.
I'm still trying hard to stick to cel shading but it seems like I just move further and further from it each time I attempt to CG xD;;;
Guess I'll continue to experiment.
EDIT: Sorry if this appears again. I'm a little OCD and realized I left out like 3 orange dots/stripes on one of the arms, haha. Went back in and added it.
