I love how you draw her teeth! I can't draw it. It just ends up looking like bleh. I tried drawing her up close on "Pepper Keibu" but then I failed miserblely(idk how to spell that...).

Thanks. Her teeth took many, many tries. I probably erased more around her mouth than anywhere else.

Wow! Really? Doesn't look like it. But how did you do her hair? It's just so... PRETTY(and impossible for me to do... >.<)!

Thanks! I'm not really sure how to sum it up except it's a bunch of parallel lines. I space them out more for highlights and fill in the gaps between them for shadows. It's quite time consuming sometimes.

Heck yeah it is! Incredibly unique and fascinating plot sadly punctuated by everybody getting murdered in new and exciting ways over and over again. It makes me feel like a horrible person for placing it among my favorites.

Thanks! I really like Gaki, but I feel like she's always being overshadowed by the other members. Maybe when Ai-chan graduates, she'll have her chance to shine. She deserves it.

I hope so too. But most likely Tsunku gives that chance to Reina and Riho >_< But never give up hope. I've always loved Gaki and I wish her the best.

you should make a tutorial on how you do a portrait ! and please tell us how you realize the detailed hair!

Thanks for the comment! Maybe once I find a consistent method. I seem to do it differently every time and everything I do during the first hour or so is often erased and redone by the time I'm through. The only general principle that I've adopted is to try to get something rough that's close and slowly refine it bit by bit and get it closer and closer to what I want.
The hair is nothing but patience. Once I've got the features in place, it's just a matter of drawing very thin lines following the contours of the features around them. They get denser to make shadows and sparser for highlights. The only trick is changing the pressure smoothly to at the beginning or end.

oh, interesting thoughts :)
I find the lips and the hair most difficult to reproduce in a realistic portrait!

Hmm. I can do small details, but getting the features the right size, angle, and position is really hard for me.
