When Drawing Masako

Appearance

When creating a picture of Kurohoshi Masako, it is important to remember several things. One factor when dealing with drawing Masako is her race. Being a Nekovalkyrja, Type 33, Masako has characteristics that are not really human. The most noticeable are the cat-like ears located where human ears should be, which is a primary characteristic of Nekovalkyrja. Then there is the fact that all Nekovalkryja have a bar code tattoo located on their body in some location. On an Tennyo, this tattoo is located on her left rear-end.

Compared to most Nekovalkyrja, Masako is on the short side with her height only reaching 4'11“ (150 cm). And though she is often described as having a petite body, her measurements often make her look less petite. If you were to refer to by Somatotype, it would normally be Mesomorphic. If you were to describe her via her own measurements it would be visually close to an hourglass-shape, yet quantitatively slightly bottom heavy. Muscular structure is often detailed as toned, much like that of a swimmer than a body builder or runner. Facial structure would be described as heart-shaped more than oval or triangular. Her hair is worn loose so that is drapes down to her shoulders and her bangs slightly past her eyebrows.

When it comes to coloration, both the eyes and the hair are said to be black, but in different tones of black. Her hair is often described as raven-black, while her eyes are often thought of as 'black as pitch' so that it makes it difficult to tell where the pupil begins. Her eyes are also described as almond-shaped with the outer corners slightly slanted upward. Her skin coloration is often described as cream-toned with a baby-soft smoothness to its texture.

Clothing

Masako has two styles of dress: Professional attire for when she's on duty and Casual attire for the other times.
