One of my newer characters, Saki Magamo, nicknamed/cruelly tagged "MagiSaki" or "Magi".
She's middke-schooler and a lover of the Scene style(think "happy emo") and aspires to become a hairstylist and open up her own beauty-salon. Since she spends all night practicing styling hair and studying, she's got no time to rest and thus always looks like she's pissed off when she's at school. Due to that, her strange taste in fashion and that one time when some self-created (colorful) hair-products (in suspicious untagged bottles) fell out of her bags during class one day, she has gained the cruel nickname of "Magi" or "MagiSaki". Constantly feared and hated for being a violent(her bad luck makes her accidentally hurt people and make it seem intentional) witch and satanist. Which she's not.
She's got two best friends(Seira "Gumi-jou" Kurumiya and Yotsuno "Yotsuko" Makoto) and a boyfriend(Ryo "Namida" [from his reputation of "making grown men cry while begging him for forgiveness" and it fitting his last name] Narida). You'll hear more on them as I submit their own headshots(which I'll make some day).
So anyway, this has been sitting in my "Pride" folder (which has pretty much turned into "the only works I've actually finished" folder) for a month or two now. I guess I didn't submit it when I finished it because I wanted to save it for a day when I actually need it (like now) or I just forgot (most likely). So yeah. I wanted to submit it sooner but, again, I forgot. So I'm submitting it now that I remembered it. It actually came out pretty good, huh?
Anyway, I made this in Easy Paint Tool SAI, in my usual "make-shift gradient" format as decoration for the simple sketch, except I inverted the gradient, filled in the drawing and had my fun with everything outside the face.
Also, this is probably my first time mentioning this, and I've never really had any problems that should make me want to mention it, but better safe than sorry -
PLEASE DON'T STEAL OR COPY MY - OR OTHERS' - ART. THINK ABOUT THE AUTHOR WHO SPENT TIME, BLOOD, SWEAT, TEARS AND SNACKS ON THEIR MASTERPIECES. REMEMBER, NEWBIES, USING YOUR OWN ART INSTEAD OF LEGAL AND ILLEGAL COPIES WILL ALWAYS MAKE YOU MORE RESPECTED, NO MATTER HOW BAD YOUR ART IS!
