Fanart tribute to Toriyama. Arale, Dr. Slump

Published on

I learned this morning of the passing of Akira Toriyama, the father of Dragon Ball, Dr. Slump, designer of Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger. Also, probably the artist who influenced me the most when I started drawing. So I'm repurposing the blog post I made of a fan art I drew of Arale and I'll date it of today. My heart is really heavy this morning...

Original post ( 23 october 2022 ):

A fanart of the little girl robot Arale Norimaki, main character of the Japanese manga series Dr. Slump (Japanese: Dr.スランプ) written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama from 1980 to 1984. I have all the manga at home and I had a lot of fun painting this one.

This artwork was also here to test my new workflow, one that attempts to get better volumes, light, and ease preserving a contrast between sharp edges and soft shading. I had to test it on a funny character full of energy and motion.
