Nichijou in real life by pineapple-pocky Nichijou in real life by pineapple-pocky
I've thought of this concept for ages, since I get to this situation a LOT at conventions. And well, many people I see...I feel they're not doing it right.
"Can you draw me?" (of course, they're already dressed in cosplay)
"yea sure" (sticks anime eyes on an anime character)
"holy shit! That's so awesome!" (I wanna slap both of them)

**this is different than drawing someone when they ask to be an anime character.

So I thought of this concept--"Cos-draw". It's a lot harder than drawing someone into an anime character, because what if they're fat, do you wanna draw them fat? You know, people are beautiful the way they are ^_^

"Cos-drawing" is drawing a person as they are in real life. So it's drawing a cosplayer LOOK LIKE A COSPLAYER cosplaying as a character! Now THAT takes some amount of actual drawing skill.
**this term is completely made up by me. But I wanna spread the term!**

Model: HasParrot (i don't know if she has a DA account but that's her alias). Walking in San Francisco fisherman's wharf in the middle of the day in a Nichijou cosplay. I was told I suck at backgrounds, so I'm practicing drawing them. It's not like I'm perfect at drawing stuff like this, and I don't use a pencil underdrawing (It's straight out a pen on a piece of paper and no pencil)

afterthoughts: Her arm is too short. I suck at backgrounds.

I'm drawing a cosplayer dressed as Shinonome, from Nichijou. More in detail here: [link]

this would be an interesting portfolio to go with... be really interesting to try things around...like make it obvious that they're cosplaying...yet at the same time it's different because we're like in the "real world" haha

I love this idea! It would be way more interesting to see a cos-drawing of a person rather than an anime-ified one. I'd like to see some more of these :D

I go to cosplay meets (although I had the idea way earlier), but I take lots of photos. Because of a non-closure kind of thing, I rarely post them. I posted this one, because I think I asked the beautiful lady if I could ages ago.

I think this is an interesting exercise, and could turn out to be a pretty cool illustration project.

I wonder if I could have done this for my thesis project?
