I have a new coloring book! My sister got me a nice book of original anime girl pictures that I have been enjoying, and here’s my first completion.
I picked this one to start for two reasons:
- I’m so excited for spring and flowers and nice weather that I really enjoyed coloring this picture with blooming trees in the background.
- This girl reminded me of Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura (of course) because of her hair and her school uniform, and the trees in the background even look like cherry trees (called sakura in Japanese).
Here’s a close up of not-Sakura. I made her eyes brown to differentiate her a bit from the real Sakura, who has light colored eyes. But I did the hair in Sakura’s color. I’m still considering this fan art haha.
I wanted the background to be very soft colors to contrast with the boldness of her outfit, but it was a bit too much for my phone’s camera and you can barely tell I colored the background at all. Here’s a shot of the cherry trees so you can appreciate my subtle coloring. 😂
I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of the images in the book over the coming months. There are so many cute ones I can’t wait to share with you.
