This is the cover art for FaLLEN Chapter 1. FaLLEN is a b/w alternative magical girls comic series I'm currently working on, for those of you who didn't know. The cover features the atypical leading lady and a younger character she encounters in the first chapter.

I really hate doing cover art. I just... I hate it. I like doing comics, but working on color cover art for any of my books is my least favorite thing to do. Perspective is probably off too, but I have to send this to the printer in a day and I still have the back cover art and other things to do, and I dunno... I guess I'm happy with this. I mean, as much as I can be. Because seriously, I hate doing cover art.

The book will obviously have the title and other stuff on it, so that's why there are some empty spaces. But why is she nekkid?!? You should read the story :3

Unlike the b/w pages, this inking is digital. I think it looks better for digital coloring to do it that way.

Thanks! I hate doing cover art because you have to consider the size of the book when you draw, and because in general I just don't like coloring very much.

Even if you don't like cover art this is one awesome piece! The colors and effects look excellent, at least to me and other who have commented. However I can understand, you are more into doing the panels and the story than pin-up art. Also she looks fantastic and really sexy but strong, and she doesn't have to have huge boobs to be sexy, that is just male fantasy. I like a girl who is strong and independent with a little attitude but still lovable when it counts. Anyway excellent work and good luck on the manga! ;)

Thank you! Yeah, I am way more into storytelling than just doing pinup-type drawing (which is why I never wanted to be an illustrator). I personally think women with athletic builds and small breasts are gorgeous, so it's nice to see someone else who agrees with me :nod: Whenever I see a woman with a muscular frame get giant implants it always seems a bit of a waste to me :(

Your welcome! I could see when you say you did not like to do covers, that you were more into the panels and getting the action scenes going. I guess every artist has a preference. As to the big B's well like I say before I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I love athletic woman, with muscle but still looking feminine to wear a dress and looking sexy. If it has big B's cool but if not is not a big deal. Yeah I know what you mean about having a muscular woman character and then putting the big ones on her, but it is all because is what sells to the male audience.
I think your female characters are appealing without needing the big B'S unless the story requires it. Anyway keep up the great work and good luck! :D

Aw, you may hate doing covers, but this came out wonderful! You do such a wonderful job of making Arma look kickass~ingly powerful but still beautiful (too often in manga it goes one way or the other).

Thank you so much! I just hate working in color, bleh. I just can't get the hang of some of the other painting styles I like (though I am kind of old fashioned and really really like cel-shading, anyway).

I think she's unconventionally attractive-- when she cleans up and puts on clothes, she makes for a fairly attractive guy. You see a lot of men who look beautiful enough to be women in comics, but most women who are masculine have really huge tits to make up for their muscular build or something. I never got that, it looks so unnatural... so I'm hoping Arma can be kind of a new type of heroine.

For now, only the Japanese version will be printed as individual chapters. The English version will be collected into an actual graphic novel with a bonus comic in it and such :3 (Of course, if you also want the Japanese chapters, I will sell some of the leftovers :D)
