Hello everyone! Emma here. I’ve been listening to Heathers The Musical a little too much lately, and while browsing Pinterest I came across Cafhune’s Magical Girl AU. For those of you who don’t know, AU stands for Alternate Universe. It’s like taking the story and changing something about it. For example, if you take Hamilton (or any other historical story) and modernize it. Modern AUs are very common. In this Magical Girl AU, the Heathers and Veronica were classic anime magical girls, like in Sailor Moon. I don’t watch much anime, but a bunch of my friends do, plus the concept is pretty familiar to me. Either way, I was hooked. I loved the designs Cafune had for the Heathers and Veronica, not to mention how incredible the art was. I decided to sit down and draw Veronica in the AU. Sorry for the kinda-bad-quality picture. I changed her design a little bit (that skirt was too floofy for me), but I still really like how this turned out. You can check out the AU for yourself here. Again, credit to Cafhune for their wonderful AU and designs.
If any artists are curious, I used alcohol markers, liners, and colored pencils for this drawing. The exact colors are Ohuhu brush PB6 and BR1, Ohuhu bullet/chisel 63, Touchnew skin tone 107, and Copic B41 (one of my few Copic markers). I also used a Sakura Decorese white gel pen, liners that I cannot read the name of on the packaging, and just regular Crayola colored pencils. I don’t know if anyone cares, but when I see art I like, I usually want to know what materials were used.
Thank you so much for checking out my blog! I hope you liked the drawing, I had a ton of fun making it! If you have any feedback (both constructive and positive), questions, or just something to tell me, leave me a comment, and a link to your blog! I would love to visit you!
