Done in ink and acrylic. I'm really stuck on using starry skies right now, so you may be seeing a lot of them.

Other works by me!

This is really nice, at first I thought the girl was from zelda though ^^;

But it's really nice how much attention you paid to the detail in the textures and hatching, I envy your patience :D

This looks really neat! It's unfortunate the photo doesn't seem very representative of how nice the ink work is (I know that feel when it comes to trying to get art on the computer, ugh). I really like the effort you put into the scales!

Thank you so much! And yes, the transfer from reality to computer is never a smooth and painless one for me *sigh*. Bu, I have a new camera so I think I'll be resubmitting this piece in better quality soon hopefully :D Thanks again!

This is really cool. I wish there was a more crisp scan of it, to do it better justice.

I know the feeling. I used to photograph all my artwork before I got a scanner this past July. Really made a difference. They have some good cheap Canon scanners at Walmart, if you have the money! I think the least expensive was about $50. If you have Walmart in Canada, for some reason I have a feeling you don't ^^; Do you?

Yes, we do have Walmart here XD They're pretty much everywhere XD I do have a scanner but this piece was too big to fit nicely there. However, I have a new and much better quality camera so perhaps I can save it :D Thanks! :)

Great job using the linework to shade and create detail. It looks complete the way it is without needing color :)
