AKB48: Chibi Sae by Sumo0172 AKB48: Chibi Sae by Sumo0172
This is my attempt to draw a chibi version of AKB48 member Sae Miyazawa. A friend of mine asked me to try doing a chibi and I decided to try. As a realist doing anime, manga or chibi is way out of my comfort zone but I gave it a shot. It actually took me a few days to figure it out and even then it may not be truly successful. This may not be as chibi as it should be but it's as chibi as I can do.

Other AKB48 portraits:

Pentel CLiCK 0.5 PD275 JAPAN 9G Mechanical Pencil

Actually for me this looked like a baby-shape of Miyazawa-san XD. And, it went very sweet :3

Yeah someone else said that too. I'm not good at chibi or anime style but the point is that AKB48 and particularly my oshimen Sae inspire me to try new things and styles. Yet another reason I hope to spread knowledge of them. They are an inpiration

Yeah, she did a good job on that one. My favorite Sae song is Kiseki wa ma ni awanai(Miracles don't make it on time)

You did well Sump! That kind of thing is totally not easy for a realism artist. I had a tough time pulling it off recently with Mg stumpy version work. Its fun to do though and yours looks great! Definitely makes you smile!

Thanks. Sounds awesome. For Yuko's portrait I decided to call back to Gingham Check and draw her in her blue and white dress but then I got a more unique way of referencing the song. And the Janken costumes, nice!
