Hello everyone, good to see you all again. Today I am going to do a tutorial of Nana Osaki from NANA －ナナ－. I don’t know how many of you know the comic NANA, but it is definitely one of the most popular Manga for girls in Asia in the past 4 years. They even made it into a movie, and also formed a real band Blast based on the punk rock band in the comic. NANA is about two girls with same name – Nana, but two completely different personality. The Nana I am drawing today is the lead singer of the punk rock band Blast. If you’ve seen the comic, you probably know that her boyfriend Honjo Ren - the guitar player of the pop band Trapnest , his appearance was definitely based on Sid Vicious – bass player of legendary punk band in the 70s “The Sex Pistols”. I guess the comic made a great success because it came out the same time when punk rock stared to become popular in Asia. Funny how the sound track from the movie and the songs from the real live band Blast does not sound anything like punk rock. But that's just my opinion, no offence to those who like the band or the movie. If you have not read NANA yet, you are really missing out! Go check it out and see the most popular manga in Asia! I will do a few more “popular in Asia “ comics in the future. See you all in my next tutorial!
