When I started getting into anime about 15 years ago, I started keeping a sketchbook so I could teach myself to draw anime-style. I have very minimal talent as an artist, but I thought it would be fun to share some of these sketches here.
This is actually one of my best, featuring the title character of Cardcaptor Sakura in action. I think she’s about to use her wand to seal a Clow Card; you can see I started tracing the outline of a magic circle around her feet.
Sakura was always one of my favorite characters to draw, not just because I loved that anime, but because I had such fun making up battle costumes for her. This is one of my own original designs.
