A few months ago I was commission by Lauren of doodlebug design (the most adorable hand-carved stamps ever) to create some characters for Pixel & Print, the 3D-printing company that she runs with her husband Daniel.
Lauren designs the jewelry part of of the brand, which features pop-culture inspired earrings. She wanted illustrations that would reflect and appeal to the fangirls toward whom their products were geared. She specifically wanted girls in costumes (cosplay), and we discussed the characters that she had in mind. Once that was settled, I pretty much had free reign in what to create. So it was a lot of fun coming up with these images.
Everything was drawn out in pencil and then inked traditionally with Sakura Pigma Micron Pens and India ink. Then I scanned in the finished drawing and colored it digitally using Adobe Photoshop.
