SoftwareFPhotoShop CS, Painter 8, Shade 6.
I drew it for the cover of the comic magazine ULTRAJUMP April 2004.
The editorial department proposed to use that illustration for the cover of the magazine when the timing of the appearance of the comic book in March. It was the favorable attention by them.
However, I had been working on this issue for more than three months from last year, and I hadn't been able to get the composition with it. After all, I showed Mr. Tomita some rough sketches, then I decided to use the most simplified and the most impressive composition of the picture.
I tried to devise the drawing process of her hair as new initiative. I drew a line art of her by hand, and she had a shaved head.
Then I made the shape of her hair by using the art brush function of Illustrator on my Macintosh computer.
I did rasterize and arranged layers in PhotoShop after that and colored it in Painter. The background of the cover illustration of the ULTRAJUMP that I had drawn was white, but I tried to draw a background this time.
I made a tube-shaped model by Shade, and I added texture images to it, and rendered it. I used it for the background.
