An illustration I did of AKB48.
AKB48 is a female idol group that has achieved enormous popularity in Japan, to the point of being characterized as a social phenomenon. The group has 64 members, ranging in age from early teens to mid-20s. Produced by Yasushi Akimoto, it is one of the highest-earning musical acts in the world, with 2011 record sales of over $200 million in Japan alone.
Featured members: Kashiwagi Yuki, Watanabe Mayu, Takahashi Minami, Maeda Atsuko, Oshima Yuko, Akimoto Sayaka and Miyazawa Sae
The AKB48 members are wearing costumes inspired by the costumes designed for the anime AKB0048.
The title implies more AKB48 group illustrations are coming.

The 1st thing I posted on tumblr. Close to 5 months have past, I discovered of the AKB48 fandom and I have gained 100 followers. I decided to reblog it just to remind me how it all started.
