Inuyasha Cosplay Fan Art

This is one of my favorite pieces to date! I begin following the amazing cosplayer by the name of Shortcake-chan in IG some time ago. She has always inspired me with her attention detail and dedication to her craft.

If you are a fan of Inuyasha you are familiar with his signature beads of Subjugation Fang Necklace. I started off by hammering out two beads in Illustrator that could be repeated as needed to line the string. You can create some fairly three-dimensional looks with simple shapes. Just take your time and don’t over think it.


Next I got to work on the line and color comp. This is the relaxing part. I just put on some good music and take my time.

You’ll notice that I composed the necklace in place.

At this point I’m not worried about blending it into the hair or clothing. It’s perfectly fine at this stage being a place holder as long as the scale and proportions are where they need to be. 

This may seem like a pretty big just from line work to color… so I’ve provided a time lapse of the entire first half of the process below. Take a look!!!  


Now that the line and basic color work is completed it’s time to move on to the final comp.

Take a look at Part 2 for the final comp and Photoshop proportion. Also check out the finished piece below! Thanks for stopping by.  Stay tuned for the next project!
