Crop from "Yoga", artwork in Manga Studio
I had the pleasure of receiving this private commission from a client and friend who wanted an illustration of his girlfriend for her birthday. She is a yoga instructor and he wanted an image of her in mid pose, perhaps on a beach or a fantasy location. I knocked up some roughs based on some holiday snaps he sent over and we settled on a fictional studio overlooking a sea view.
I drew the image straight into the computer using Manga Studio's "pencil" tool for a softer feel. I painted the beach in using a lot of white to keep the image nice and clean and then added the "Studio" tones over the top.
