【Illustrator】 高山瑞季

高山瑞季 (Takayama Mizuki), who was mentioned in the last post, is a female artist who is best known for her contributions to G.Rev games Senko no Ronde and まもるクンは呪われてしまった!(Mamoru-kun Has Been Cursed!). She also participates heavily in various conventions (COMITIA, Comiket, Sunshine Creation)  and has new original doujinshis out a few times a year. Her circle name is シトロネット(Citronette. Yes, again, but this time alone.)

Unlike most “moe” styles, hers is more anime-like, and the eyes don’t use dark lines as per usual in other typical moe art. I guess that her works are more “cutesy” than moe, but they are along the same lines. Takayama’s colouring is extremely anime-like, but with a lot less contrast on shadows, so everything seems floaty and light. Lately she has been adding more dark shadows and experimenting with darker colours, though, so that might not be her signature “light” style anymore. Lastly, the way she draws eyes are extremely simple, using only a couple of colours, and shaped very round.
