TARA BONBON. V2 NTSC by HOON TARA BONBON. V2 NTSC by HOON
Return of Pop Star. Tara Bonbon of Ninja TalkShow concept collection.

art by


Okay. ive been having an itchy trigger finger to drop another "involved" character design for you all; art lovers, and this had to be the one.
This is one of the early collaborations Sir Stanley and I did to confirm and caliberate the affiliation of two up-and-coming art studios, IFS (imaginary friends studios) and MESSS. And it happens to be the new version of Tara bonbon one of the first piece of illustration i posted here. >> [link] <<
With this picture, new volume of Ninja Talkshow character concept collection began.

Tara Bonbon (student/younger version) is a senior classmate of the main character Epitaph, and her goal is to become a singer/songwriter/dancer when she graduate from the school, so she can get the attention of "the man," GINSHI, and eventually become his imperial bunny.

Not to worry though. This is just a special case, and collab between lovely and will continue. ^^

concept, Lineart, and layout by myself,
character beautifully painted by SIR artgerm.
Painter and Photoshop used.

special thanks to Artgerm, and very special thanks to all of you in advance.

The only thing that bothers me is that the arm behind her looks awkward, but the rest is so awesome you barely notice it! :)

so nice to see those pretty ringlets again. i like the sword in her hand and the perspective on that. her pose is stangely quite like a cross between a ninja and a popstar. fitting then. the little star and heart on her hose are pretty cute. really really nice.

Love it... Absolutly beautiful. You've captured her movements and expression wonderfully. I love how her clothing wraps over her foot. Great details.

I would really like to make a Litestep theme from this piece. I created the Litestep theme put out by sub9. The theme name is Movement in stillness or simply sub9. The theme was created from his desktop background of the same name.

Drop me a line either at DA or on AIM - Abusive User.

Thank you!

Link: I think you overdid the tight, transparent top, but that is one bad-ass sword. Cool character design, even if I disagree with the hair, but I have to wonder what she's doing with that microphone...

It's great rendering for sure, but the left arm seems a bit off, I think the hand should be a bit bigger since it's foreshortened, but other than that, masterful digipainting
