Miraculous Ladybug by starmasayume
Yes I've been hooked on this series and couldn't help myself... I adore Ladybug and Chat Noir! <3
Aside from redrawing Chat Noir's pose way too many times until I was happy ~ basic line art stage over my sketch.
Base colors on my usual layers for skin, clothes, and hair. Till here I worked in photoshop but from here I'll take it over to Corel Painter for coloring.
Colored the line art and added some extra details. Decided to open Ladybug's mouth like in my original sketch.
Dropped in a neutral gray and began with a flower idea behind them. With the help of a friend we decided the flowers should be lilac for first love and yellow chrysanthemum for secret admirer / neglected love ;).
The final art! Mixed the flowers together and added detail, created a dot pattern, and drew their names which I outlined with the characters to help them stand out. This step took awhile till I discovered what I liked.
