Not really sure what Manga is but I that is what I first thought of when I was working on this journal page.
The theme was to either alter your own picture or that of your swap partner. I choose me.
Here is the original picture. I actually shared this before but I went in a totally different direction and I was using my prismacolored pencils which I am loving more and more and more!
I was either in kindergarten or first grade. I am thinking first grade though.
Today I wouldnt be caught dead in a sleeveless shirt LOL.
Here is the color page I made
I will be honest I did not free hand drew it. I took the above photo into paint shop pro, I made a new layer and used my bamboo tablet and drew an outline of myself. I then deleted the bottom layer.
I decided to give me a new nose, remove my star, give me some animated eyes and lips. I also changed my outfit.
I am not really sure why I went with rainbow brite. This was before her time LOL and I was never a rainbow brite fan.
I guess it would have looked silly to stick he-man or liono on there and a little hard to color since they are much more detailed.
I probably should have gone with hello kitty on retrospect. Though hello kitty was around, not quite as popular as they are today. I wasn't really a big fan of them either LOL.
Oh yeah I added a moon too.
I messed up on her pony tail on this one. the one to the left was suppose to be back ground not hair.
I needed to make two so the second one does not have the goof up...
