Art post!

Arrrrgh. I feel like I've been working on this image FOREVER. It took me an inordinate amount of time because i used a digital coloring technique that I've never used before. The entire thing, including lines, was done in photoshop....which I had never tried. it's a bit time-consuming, but the result is really clean-looking, so I definitely think it's worth it. So yeah, i pretty much used only the pen, gradient, and fill tools here. it's pretty good for achieving that cel-shaded anime style.

This is a self-portrait, based on an outfit I wore at Anime Weekend Atlanta:
this one
I call it "Casual Punk Pirate Lolita."
