This is Sarah Meenta. She is a lonely girl who keeps to herself for the most part. She usually doesn't wear these kinds of clothes, but I figure this could be something in the far future or an alternate universe, who knows. Akuma, her best friend, wears armor so maybe she picks up his style.
I started with a basic gestural sketch to get down the pose.
And then I went ahead and detailed in the costume.
I used the sketch as a base, and then blocked in the colors.
I started placing in the basic shading using a hard brush.
Then I started to flesh out the background a little more.
I softened the shading a bit and smoothed things out.
And then I made some finishing touches to the background.
