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:

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.

Very cool image.  It is scenes like this that have always made me want to go to Japan.  hahaha~  I like that small-town feel.

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