Tear up the streets
After having some Jet Set Radio (JSR) music stuck in my head, I decided to have a quick go on the original Dreamcast game… Four hours later I fully remembered why it’s one of my favourite games of all time!
The characters of JSR really stand out for me, one of my favourites being Gum, shown here. She mostly looks moody, but throws you a cheeky smile and a wink now and then (see inspiration). It strangely says a lot about her. I just wanted to capture some of that here while also doing the fan service to JSR.
As for the picture itself, I wanted it to have a hint of the cartoony cel-shading used in the game, but without it being too flat. I say it every time, but I like it when I keep my outlines in the final piece and it still looks ok!
