This month I decided to draw a character from a show I’ve recently started watching. The show is called “Miraculous Ladybug” and the character’s name is Marinette. The show takes place in Paris, and was originally in French, but recently got re-dubbed in English and now airs on Nickelodeon.

One of my best friends got me into it a while ago and I’ve loved it ever since. It may seem immature to like such a show, seeing as how it’s mostly aimed toward younger viewers, but you’d be surprised how popular it is among other teen artists on the internet!

I have to admit, although it was quite time consuming, I had so much fun working on this:

rsz_ladybug1-1I sketched, lined and colored in Sketchbook Pro, and tried some new shading techniques in Photoshop (Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor). And then all of the other details were also done in Sketchbook. I grabbed the background (which is a screenshot from the show) from the internet and blurred it a bit for a focus effect.

You can email me about commissions at, or go to @Buffaloh.daisy on Instagram. I look forward to sharing yet another drawing next month!
