Gakuen Kino Catgirl by raptor-tk Gakuen Kino Catgirl by raptor-tk
I challenged one of the guys that sat next to me to a game of drawing a random character from one of my many anime magazines, except following a particular theme. It was very interesting and enjoyable activity.

The first picture that we selected was the girl Kino from “Gakuen Kino” a parody of the popular light novel called “Kino’s Journey (Kino no Tabi)”. The theme for this character was cat girls.

I think the body is a bit too long.

Actually, I think the problem might not be that the body is too long, but her legs are too short/small. With my hand, if I cover her body from just below her skirt, it looks ok. The stick figure's legs also seem a bit short.

Keep it up =)

Ah! I see, you're right, I can fix it if I make the legs longer. Though I still think shortening the body would help too.

Strange.. I didn't notice the legs were too short in this one.

Thanks for all the comments, It's really helpful.

Hmm, after a bit of thought, I'll have to disagree.

If you compare the rest of the body to her head proportion, you'll find that her torso and hips are about the right proportion, even for young girl proportions.
I reckon that if you shorten the body, the comparison of the head to the rest of her body will give her chibi proportions.

Really? I am really envious of your guy drawing skills. I haven't really drawn any guy characters before. I still really like that Negima pic of yours.

I think I should give drawing Negima in a cool battle pose a shot next time.

Haha, thanks, but the guys I draw aren't that great. +I need to practice drawing seriously again. XD

That would be pretty cool! Negima in a battle pose! >w< Can't wait to see.
