Saturday Sketches (Week 7) – Saeko Busijima

Hopefully, everyone will be able to tell who this is. After all, it’s got to be one of the most iconic scenes in the series and possibly the most memorable in anime…

What did you draw this week?

That’s quite the opening statement! I’m not sure if it is the most memorable, but surely, everyone should know this scene. It’s over the top in the most incredible way and just a hell of a lot of fun.

This sketch is from my favourite anime and it’s also my favourite character. Got it yet? Of course, you have, it’s Saeko Busujima standing on top of the Humvee as they rush to rescue Komuro.

There’s a lot going on in this picture with her apron and hair flapping in the wind. It makes for a fairly dynamic picture, so I just hope I’ve done it justice.

This was another sketch in the larger A3 pad, so again I was able to get a little more detail in, which is essential with the apron, otherwise, it would just be a big blank blob.

I’m pretty happy with it, although the head isn’t quite to the same scale as the body. Maybe, I’m just trying to be too perfect as it is Saeko. I’m sure I’ll find another excuse to draw her again, so it’s a good start for now.

Want to see me draw someone or something (I’m prepared to draw mecha or monsters too) then put in the comments and I’ll see what I can do.

      Thanks. I need to make more time for sketching. Eventually, I’d like to learn how to do them digitally. It’s also oddly relaxing.
