Clannad is one of my favorite animes. I've done VA work as Akio before, and the series itself is one of those emotional shows that can bring even the toughest brute to tears, especially with everything that goes on in After Story. The Big Dango Family is a constant sight in the show being that they're a favorite of Nagisa, making appearances with the characters as well as in the closing credits. So, as I've been teaching myself how to draw anime, manga and chibi style, I figured the easiest and most basic thing to make would be a Dango from Clannad! I made the Dango in Paint Tool SAI, and then imported it into Photoshop to do what I do best: photo manipulation. I found a wallpaper (which I later researched and discovered is from an anime called Mushishi, which I've never seen) and used a filter to make it look like it was paint so that it blended better with the Dango. Then I adjusted the colors a little, blended the Dango as well to look more like part of the composition, then added a little shadow for effect. Hope you like it!
