I did two Elfen Lied drawings, so I figured two Junji Ito fanarts would be okay...
More of my "Weird Girls in Anime and Manga" series.
Remina, from Junji Ito's Hellstar Remina. Remina is pretty typical for an Ito protagonist You never get to learn too much about her, and then she is suddenly thrust into a horrific situation of which there is no relief of escape. The situation in this case being The Apocalypse. Or to be more specific, the Earth getting eaten by a planet-sized alien, also named Remina. I really liked this book a lot. It's one of my favorite Junji Ito works, and the one where he really lets his Lovecraft influence shine.
Remina herself is a bit one-dimensional. She amounts to nothing more than a damsel in distress, the princess in the high tower, the human-sacrifice. She reminds me of a 50's B-Movie victim. I wanted this image to feel like an old movie poster... But the colors in old posters aren't very exciting... So I looked at a lot of photos of galaxies and nebulas. Something that conveyed the cosmic terror of it all. Kinda fitting in the end I think.
