Fan Art Friday: Li Meiling loves fall

Fall Meiling

Here’s another from my high school sketchbook.  Meiling Li is my favorite character from my favorite anime (and the inspiration for my pen name).  I drew her a lot, in various outfits and hairstyles.

Here I gave her braids instead of her trademark odango.  She’s wearing “civilian” clothes but the top takes some influence from the Chinese style of her battle costume.

There’s a lot that’s cringe-worthy about this sketch (the feet eeeeeek), but I love her hair, her expression, and the leaves and wind swirls.
