So, I don’t know how many of you Kuroshitsuji fans already know this, (I’m sure most of you do, but if you don’t lol…) Yana has another blog where she’s been posting her sketch work. Some of it is for the manga and/or for the official art she posts on her main site, but others are just character sketches like the ones I posted =) so definitely check it out if you haven’t!
On a personal note, Yana really inspired me simply because of how much I think her art has improved since she started. Not to say other, if not most, artists do the same thing, but Kuroshitsuji was kind of the first anime/manga that really made me start thinking about plot and character development and such in not just manga, but stories in general. Again, not saying that I think Kuroshitsuji is the world’s absolute perfect manga (even if I do adore it) just that it was the one that really got me interested in thinking about those things. That and Yana’s progression was really an inspiration for someone like me who was studying to become an illustrator.
So, yeah…I guess this kinda just turned into a shout out for my love of Yana and her work in Kuroshitsuji ^.^ Sorry for the gush of thoughts lol
