posting it here because I’m not posting this on DA until I have volume one printed and ready for sale! for obvious reasons.
but MAN I’ve spent AGES on this image for some reason. I was originally fond of the sketch, then during rough colouring and detailing a lot of anatomy errors began to bother me. And as I was getting through all of that, I kept wishing that I had designed more appealing clothing, even though simple designs are good for comic purposes and Veloce does have some bad memories about fancy clothing.
I was looking through a lot of comic/manga covers for layout and content reference, and I liked the cover designs for the japanese version of Bleach a lot. I don’t understand why they had to ruin it when they translated it into english. The cover art are not amazingly detailed and extravagant, but as a series I just love the congruence between each cover.
