Miyu's Strawberry Waltz Illustration - 5

Miyu's Strawberry Waltz is a lovely but brief collection of her original characters in frilly dresses, trimmed in lace and framed by flowers. Though the majority of the illustrations are monochrome, the color portion of Strawberry Waltz definitely makes it worth a look!

Strawberry Waltz is B5-sized and 28-pages including the covers, with eight illustration pages in color and the rest monochrome. The covers have a shimmering finish, and the cover illustration is featured again inside, with a less cropped version. Even though this collection is from a few years back, Miyu's attention to detail and colorful palette are still present (and honestly, in some cases better than in her more recent works).

The monochrome illustrations for the most part are originally black and white and not just gray-scaled color illustrations, which makes quite a difference. The screen tones, shading and lacy details are all adapted with a manga-esque quality that really showcases how comfortable Miyu is working with monochrome as well as color. Overall Strawberry Waltz is a nice collection that isn't weighed down by its monochrome section, though one can't help but want to see a little more color from Miyu ^^
