It was the tassels!

Sometimes something catches our eye, this time it was the tassels. (Sorry for the rough scan, I just snapped a picture from my sketchbook.)

In addition to the memory exercise, I practice my line quality. I think it could use a little more line width variation.

Aside  from her unique outfit, I notice this lady was very lengthy and had round shapes.

Manga Reaches the US!

It's official, I saw my first Manga character in person. OK, I've seen plenty of characters at Comic Con, but not just walking around street? This isn't a costume, it's high-fashion! Complete with lollipop! 

I believe the style is called Decora. It started when photographer Aoki Shoichi started to document the street fashion in Harujuku, Tokyo. And, now it seems to have reached the shores of Culver City. 

I believe this is Decora's the first foray into these hallowed halls of Sketchclub.
