Tried Panzer by Jowybean Tried Panzer by Jowybean
Phew well it finally happened That's right I said  enough is enough on a piece of art. That has been dragged out for too long.

So basically the reason for this illustration was just after I and my friends had  finished Girls Und Panzer ,which was brilliant and the soundtrack is even better. I decided to begin work on a rather ambitious idea inspired by the brief moment in the early episodes when the main cast visit a tank shop, As soon as I saw that I was like YES I must recreate something like this but with a novelty comic store feel. now I aimed to get this done early in the new year (i even posted a wip image of the characters Sensha do Walk WIP by Jowybean

But due to new projects and my stubborn attitude to perfectionism with digital painting ^^; I  had continued to go back to it never completely satisfied to post it , I have been trying out a few new techniques with this image particularly custom patterns and textures . I thought I would never release it until I spent a few hours on it tonight and now i feel its close enough to the version I originally had in my head months ago. 
This image represents a shift in the sort of fanart/anime art I want to make in the future. essentially high quality Slice of life, action scenes, with a focus on the environment/ universe said property would be from. I have been making a long list of ideas/ wip pieces some I hope to release soon , and yep for you bronies some of them are MLP related =D  

Until next deviation  LATERS Peace  

painted in Photoshop CS6 with my Wacom in... I have no idea I lost count of the hours I spent on this XD lets say 25 hours

Is this Cute :meow: Win :winner: Fail :crying:

Oh my gosh, where to begin?! The detail and feeling of being up early in the morning with these girls is astounding. The rays of sunlight, the shadows on the ground and everything in between is a masterful mix of detail and imagination. I especially love the advertisements in the store window and the comfortable little houses lining the road.^o^ The girls themselves are wonderfully drawn and after seeing your WIP for them, I say you've managed to fit them into this new piece perfectly! They fit with the entire tone of the picture and their uniforms are beautifully done. This whole piece is incredible, making me wish I could live somewhere like this!

If you loved the original anime series, then you'll love 'Girls und Panzer, der Film'.  It's the follow-up OVA where the Ministry of Education still tries to shut down the school.  The other school jump into the act when Ooari Girls Academy has to take on a university team.

Amazing picture!!!

I loved the anime! Mako Reizei was my favorite though. She is always tired and then when life got tough, she pulled through with a calm personality.

If you did something based on Nichijou or Azumanga Daioh then I'd be all over that ...
