Raika Portrait by SnowCorridor Raika Portrait by SnowCorridor
If there is anything I want to learn, it's how to draw faces from a front view.

And what better time than summer vacation to invest some hours learning that.
Soo...this is actually my second attempt at doing this. First one looked hideous OTL This is really more of a practice piece rather than a finished one, hence the lack of a background.

I picked Raika because he is the most commonly drawn OC of mine, and I wanted to draw him smiling for a change.

I was going for that "Student ID" kind of look. This was soo rushed...I don't think I've ever wanted to finish an piece so quickly haha.

*Drawn and colored in Paint Tool SAI.*
*Art and character belong to me,:iconsnowcorridor:.*

I'd like to know more about the character :3 Is there a reference page already, or can I look forward to one? ^U^

I'm very glad to hear that. Unfortunately no such sheet exists at present, cause I didn't think anyone would be interested... But do look forward to it! I'll probably make some when I practice full body poses.

Really glad you like it! :)

That was part of my intention. I didn't want an overly adult or masculine look, so I went for cute and cuddly instead XD

Thanks!
IKR?! I look at anime pics for references and they all look perfectly symmetrical...
But when I try doing it just doesn't look right! :icony-u-noplz:

Ah well, practice makes perfect I guess.^^

The hardest part with frontal views is I think the symmetry of the face, atleast from the tradtional artist perspective.
One could easily mistake him for a girl, since he has such a girly face (he must be popular with the ladies (ノ ̄ー ̄)ノ

He has a twin sister named Asuka, right? Would actually be pretty hilarious to see them both genderbend
(Ka-BHAMM!!! Another potential idea for your next piece XDDDD!!)

Trust me, it's no joke even working in digital. If I would, say , duplicate the eyes so that they would perfectly symmetrical, it still won't look right.
Ohoho, yes he is popular alright. XD

I'm actually really glad you remembered his sister's name! Makes me happeh :)
Well, that's always a possibility. You never know what'll come next ^_^

Ooh, I guess there's no cheating when it comes to symmetry >.<
Ahahaha, I can already imagine all the girls going like this >>>:iconfangasmingplz:<<< everytime he walks by XDDD

Well honestly, I only remembered he has a twin sister so I had to look it up for her name.
Yeah but still, it would be really funny ^^
