Part of a Heroine Pin-Up calendar collaboration I made together with kichisu.tumblr.com/

For my August artwork I chose to draw Gally (Alita) from Gunnm (Battle Angel Alita). It is one of my top three comics of all time and means so much to me. I really wanted to draw her so badly but at the same time I was so scared I wouldn’t do her justice.

Instead of drawing her usual intense self I wanted to draw her calm and feminine. My original idea was more cute than what I ended up with, but I really like the calm feeling in this picture.
I drew this with ink and grey Copics, with a little some added colour and touch ups in Photoshop. It was the first time I tried this technique!

I hope you will like it!

make me remember that scene from the "sonic finger" story where you see Alita doing her morning clean up before going to do jogging.

So cute!  It never occurred to me that she would polish her metal.

Nudity is irrelevant to a machine body, but grooming herself like this really does make her look "nude".
