So I recently discovered something many people have been enjoying for a while. Yaoi911. I know, I know. I'm special. That goes without saying.
I love the stories and the not so typical BL art and plot. The Young Protectors, for which this is fanart, is drawn by a DC/Marvel Pencil artist after all. I LOVE that. I'm a closet fan of Bara so this just tickled me pink.
Needless to say, I had to draw something to show my unnatural love. (Is is unnatural? I don't know. I am, however, a huge fan).
So here's Anni and Red after what one can only assume was a dramatic fight.
I also recently got a new tablet. This is my first piece colored with it. I pencil with...well, pencils. So the ink you see on there is ink ink. Fun times! This tablet made everything so much easier. I discovered a few things later on, like fine details blah blah, so you can tell which patches were my early work and which were the later. The last tablet I used took me a good 4 hours to color ONE panel. That. Was. Annoying. The drawing portion of the tablet was veeeeery small. This one is a good size. This in total took me about 10, which could be better but considering how easily distracted I am by EVERYTHING, that isn't bad.
I would like to point out that the original colorist is AMAZING. They put such detail that even looking at the colors, I only wished I could properly emulate her work. I hope I did an OK job.

(yes, I know, there are some foreshortening problems. >_< I am still working on that. As an artist, it is one of my only weaknesses).
