Although the result is seemingly trivial this cartoon was a bit of a challenge as I was trying to get a Manga look and feel. Both sketching and inking and the digital post-processing took some practicing and a few retries.
The puny-code and the two big characters represent the word “Manga”. The name of the protagonist in this cartoon ‘Ringo Kun’ is written in the head band. The name is a obscure reference… a bit of a bad joke actually.
