The title needs some work but here is a digital painting fanart of Izumi Kyouka from the anime Bungou Stray Dogs to add to my Fanart Red Series.
The inspiration behind this art piece is mentioned in the video but basically, it’s because I like the anime. Let’s jump right into the second half of the title: Introverts.
I am an introvert, which is why it’s much easier to create blog posts than converse with actual people. I feel as though I can get my points across better through words. Arguably, I think that because I do it so often, that is also another factor to take into consideration. But other than that, I’m just an introvert who has difficulties saying the right words versus typing.
And what does this have to do with the fanart?
Personally, I think this whole series is filled with characters defined by being introverts, extroverts or ambiverts and those defining characteristics is how they decide to interact with each other. Again, arguably, that is how everyone interacts- based on their personality. But what I think is truly interesting is that they don’t take the personality of their authors (because that is what the whole shtick of the show is is that they are based on authors and their powers based on books written by the author). I’m most likely not even going into an accurate explanation of this as it has been a couple years since I watched the show but that is the basic gist!
or don’t. here: The Real Authors of Bungo Stray Dogs
Currently there are 2 Seasons with the 3rd officially announced this past April.
Anyway, I really loved the concept of the story and was glad my siblings forced me to watch it. I enjoyed every bit of it and the character I chose to draw was someone the main character connected with. I don’t want to go into spoiler town but basically that is the reason.
Izumi also wears red and I thought what a good excuse to draw her!
Below is a gallery for the process and final.
So there it is.
