This is Pepper, a fictional character designed by Stanley Lau, a girl that always shows up with her classy headphone and red outfit.
This piece is an original Pepper Fan Art submitted specially for Pepper Project.
What i had in mind when making her sketch is about a Japanese idol, a cute girl with sexy feature but ready to please her fans not only with her look but also spectacular skill in singing, the perfect entertainer or in short, a superstar.
Around 70 hours or so painted with a mouse, done in Photoshop. I gathered quite a lot of references from google images, mostly from Japanese teen idols. Most of them, usually always show with innocent look but pretty self confident with their beauty. This piece is greatly inspired by one of my all-time favorite Japanese idol, Yuko Ogura.
