"My own father took my mother AWAY from me!"
Satomi Hiroyama, from my ongoing manga Crimson Shadows. This is a promotional art for the episodic Kinetic novel adaption I plan on developing (because the story will advance more in this format than in manga, since it takes more time for manga...at least for me).
For those of you who follow the manga, you probably know what scene this is illustrating.

(a 9-page update is on the way!)
You have NO IDEA how frustrating coloring this was! Only because when I scanned it in, there were SO MANY broken lines, I had to repair them in order to properly use the bucket tool. After that, using gradients and smudge were very easy to complete the image, and in the end I was happy with how it turned out! But man...this must of taken me at least an hour >.<
Be on the look out for more promotional art, featuring the other characters, coming soon!
Drawn and inked traditionally.
Colored digitally with GIMP.
