Fanart Arale, Dr. Slump

Published on

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.
