Oh I love anime girls! <3 Armor Blitz seems so pretty!! is there more to see? *goes searching*
My whole style is heavily anime/manga influenced.
I did a tool to create anime girls and it is particularly relevant to me the matter of letting the user decide the colors and combinations yet having decent shadows and a fair amount of combinations. this is a preview.

(both are out, you can search for them here http://www.erikari.it/blog/the-anime-girl-maker/ )
Now I'm trying to translate what I did with the first project into an animated version, like for visual novels, using Spine. it's really time consuming but I enjoy thinking of solutions quite a lot.
Right now I just have a video of how a bug prevented me from turning the hair into meshes, but it's just for demonsrtation purposes:
I was planning of releasing this tool here on itch.io when I finish it, though it will take a looong time.
