Julia by zaphiel-san Julia by zaphiel-san
Finally finished!!! :D I started drawing this one somewhere in early october O.O

She started out as Juliet from Orwell's "1984", with a dark blue uniform, short hair and stuff. Then, as I progressed with cging I gave it a kind of fatasy-ish background and the whole idea tilted in a different direction.

Then I gave a couple of details on her uniform and changed it's color to red, which resulted it a very admiral - like look :D

Finally I have changed all the colors again and finished it now. The name, however, reamains the same:)

Happy new year! :)

edit: " got a little help with putting emphasis on details, looks a lot better now :) Thx :)"
