As it turns out…

It’s five in the morning and I’ve been up all night slaving away at this piece of work:


It does need a background though doesn't it?

I drew the original in a fit of inspiration yesterday evening. I really liked the pose, and when I went to manga studio today (or yesterday, I suppose) I showed it to Jake and he said “It needs color.” So…Thursday evening at 10:00 pm I sat down, fired up GIMP, and worked for six and a half hours straight coloring this with an old tablet. I listened to large amounts of Metallica, Black Tide and the Lord of the Rings soundtrack to keep me going. I was tapping away on that tablet for ages.
When I finished it, I looked at it and said “OH SNAP! THIS IS AWRSUM!” or something along those lines. I’m REALLY happy with how it turned out. I’d never tried any serious drawing on the computer before, and the fact that this turned out as well as it did on my first try is very encouraging. Anyway, I’m rather ecstatic but also fried to the bone, so I’m going to go get some sleep now.

  1. I like the color of this drawing and I especially like how you drew the hair in a way that you can feel it being in motion.
