I'm actually a day late (on my schedule, anyway) for this, but in celebration of 's birthday I made her a picture of Tsunade-sama, whom she resembles to a frightening degree. Against her, what wall, what boulder could stand?
This is really, really, really well colored. I'm especially eyeing her arms and face, but the whole thing is shaded awesomely. You've come a hell of a long way with coloring techniques. As always, I love the lineart too~ The hands are nicely positioned.
This is the cherry on top of a wonderful weekend sundae! People have remarked before on the hands, and I have to agree they're great! The arms and lips too. The delicate chain on the necklace is some wonderful detailing as is the glow on the pendant. So much love put into this picture!
Thank you very much! I had a great birthday this year. After next year's b-day, I refuse to age anymore.
