I bought a liquid tab for coloring. It’s more sensuous than the board tab, and the speed has increased considerably. I was able to do this in an hour. Very happy. pic.twitter.com/5ndFoLudkC

I came to see the stage Hiroaka yesterday. It was amazing, it was fun. I got a lot of inspiration. There is no sharpness to mention, so it is only a part of the impression. pic.twitter.com/WHtTD1evvQ

It seems that he did not have time to attend and took some inspiration from the actors. Too bad there isn’t a translation of what each’s text bubbles say.
Let’s see if more color sketches of the characters from Boku no Hero Academia The My Hero Academia in the future. I’m not saying it’s wrong that Horikoshi prefer black and white sketches, but a colored input is appreciated. It adds variety to your contributions.
How nice that I decided that Kyoka Jiro was the character with which he debuted his tablet. He is someone who always gives his best in everything he does. Thanks to @aitaikimochi for the translations.
