Drawing a Cute Character for Early Spring

In early January I drew a cute magpie picking poppies in my sketchbook. I wanted to redraw it digitally, using Clip Studio Paint, and make it more springy by using more saturated colors than on my sketchbook – especially the red of the flowers. However, I still wanted it to remind us early spring, when it’s still pretty chilly outside. This is why I kept pretty cool shades of blues and greenes.

I really love designing characters depending on the season I am placing them in, and it is skill I want to develop.

I recorded the process of the digital redraw on Clip Studio Paint. You can watch it on youtube!

  1. Nice drawing. I never make an illustration using CPS. I only use it to draw my webtoon. Maybe next time I try to use it if there’s make any difference.

    1. Oh yeah I heard CSP was first meant to do comics / mangas / webtoons. The tools to make this kind of art seem really great on CSP!
      I hope you’ll have a good timeif you try it to make an illustration 🙂 !
