Nodoka style by Manatsu
This artist with a nice crisp style seems to create quite a bit of “K-ON!” themed illustrations, often using a specific theme for a series of images such as suits, sailor uniforms or in this case, having the けいおん girls wear Nodoka’s glasses.
Couldn’t omit this image of Shizuka, one of the light music club girls’ classmates from class 3-2. Love the combination of her pose, wink and blushing face, excellent in its cuteness and simplicity.
Ritsu too is looking quite serious and determined, it really must be the effect of Nodoka’s glasses!
Always admire how some artists can accurately capture the essence of characters and render them so spot on, even imbuing them with characteristics they’re not immediately obviously portrayed with in the source material.
Who can resist blushing, moe girls? The earlier illustration of Shizuka was quite cute, but her shy-to-a-fault classmate Akiyo looks just as cute! Or would she herself rather say she looks interesting?
Closing off with this illustration of Mio, reminiscent of how she was shown in the first opening animation sequence of “K-ON!!” wearing Nodoka’s glasses which has no doubt inspired the artist.
