AKB48: Takahashi Minami - AKB0048 version by Sumo0172 AKB48: Takahashi Minami - AKB0048 version by Sumo0172
Minami Takahashi is a Japanese idol singer. She is one of the founding members of AKB48 and is the captain of Team A, as well as one third of the subgroup No Sleeves also known as no3b.

As captain of Team A, Minami Takahashi is AKB48's de facto captain. An awe inspiring young woman, I cannot express how impressive she is. I simply recommend finding out more about AKB's Papa.

In this illustration I drew Takamina wearing a costume inspired by the costume designed for the anime AKB0048.

Other AKB48 portraits:



Strathmore 14x17 Drawing Paper
0.5 Pentel Side FX Mechanical Pencil

I love your works! Somehow they look 'simple' but it's amazing how you capture their features really accurately. Awesome sense of proportion!
