I was due to draw the pinup illustration for "Ultra Jump MEGAMIX Vol.2," which was to be sold in the New Year of 2007.
The pinup is actually like a mini pinup, because the format of the MEGAMIX is small (almost same size as ordinary books).
Unlike cover illustrations for books or magazines, there's no need to consider title spaces etc. So, the appeal for creators is that you can choose relatively free subject matter.

This time I decided to draw the illustration with a little different method. So thinking that taking record would be fun, I'm going to show you the work process here.
