More Nanao K-ON!! Image Song Cover Art
This time the illustrations are in the same art style that was used in the official cover art images for the Character Image Song singles for “K-ON!!”, the anime’s second season.
Do like how the artist applied their own unique style to create these illustrations. Small details like the hairdo, facial expressions enable these particular images to bring a whole new look and atmosphere.
When the first season of the anime adaptation started to air, for quite some time Ritsu did not seem to get much attention from artists and fans alike.
Though even back then one could spot good artworks of her here and there. Luckily now there are plenty more great illustrations of her, such as this one.
Tsumugi looks as elegant and feminine as ever, as does Mio. Always amazing to see how artists can capture so much of a characters’ aura with simple strokes, colors or using facial expressions and poses.
Like what Nanao did with Mio’s hair in this illustration, perhaps that’s what’s most striking about this series of images, the alternate hair styling.
A nice touch is how Yui’s pose actually links up with that of Ui, which you can check out on Nanao’s Pixiv page.
