how come you're doing a print of this one? i thought you weren't offering da prints?

I put up a few prints of things I probably wasn't going to make prints of myself, or might sell better on DA than my site. You know how people always like the picture an artist doesn't? Well that's one of them :)

[link] though the ghost girl grew on me. I might do that one.

yeah, that makes sense :) and given how much inventory you have, it might make sense for a few of them.

the ghost girl is good, but too monotone. you do much more amazing coloring nowadays. :) i vote for making a new ghost girl :)

This just glorious work. I know the guys are the main focus, and they are just beautifully drawn and color, but your backgrounds are just so amazing to me.. (I have troubles with backgrounds when I use water color)

Gorgeous work!:aww:

Love your artwork - it's like peering into another world. And I love the combination of warm colours in this. The shades of yellow looks like light shining through the trees, or something ethereal. But then again, I suppose you could say light IS ethereal - depends in what way you look at the world around us!:)

And just a quick question (if you're still reading comments for this piece of artwork), but what do you use to outline characters and other background details? Do you do this before or after painting it?

Thanks for your time - you're a great inspiration!:p

Characters with black waterproof ink. the rest was just in pencil and I went over it with watercolor and a small brush.

And maybe it's just me, but I'm noting a bit of CLAMP influence on the side views. ^.~ <3 Looks VERY Good!
Or perhaps your styles are simply similar. Whichever way, fantastic. :]

i really love how your artwork is always so enchanting. that's probably the best word to describe your lineart and colors and themes. the fact that you seem to find new ways to improve your painting with each piece also never fails to amaze me! keep it up!

Hmmm, the "available in print" link for the earlier comic chapters doesn't seem to be working.
