Full Moon wo Sagashite by Lolipopgi Full Moon wo Sagashite by Lolipopgi
Sigh, once again - it looks better on paper.
Here's Mitsuki and Eichi from the manga Full Moon (w)o Sagashite(ru).

"Hmm, this artist isn't bad. But I bet she can't colour traditionally, that's why she disguises her weakness with digital art."
"No offence, but I prefer traditional colouring. I'm just old fashioned I guess."
"I dunno, your pics are the ONLY ONES that look professional so it's kinda... showing off..."
"Yeah, it is kinda showing off."

Pfft. The manga competition didn't swing how I hoped, but still, the day before the deadline (and the same day I got called a show off ¬¬;), I power-drew this picture then coloured it traditionally. They sure shut the hell up about it. Hrmph. But then they said this picture was better than the Byakuya one...

Traditional colouring is, in my opinion, horrible:
1) Tiring.
2) Smudgey mess.
3) If you go wrong, that's it.
4) Sharpening pencils is crap.
5) Scanner ALWAYS kills the quality.
6) Pencils are expensive and go missing.
7) You don't always have the colours you want or need. Like pink, for instance. You'd think you'd have like a million of those. Not a single one in the house. All I have is red.
8) Digital colouring looks so much better!

So to those who think those who colour digitally are show offs, maybe it's because they hate to colour traditionally. That or you, the accuser, can't colour digitally at all and are jealous ¬¬

Anyway, hope you like it :) I am very proud of this picture. It helped me prove a point too! :D
The plaits... ugh... the pain of drawing those was excruciating. Colouring, ugh don't get me started.

I use GIMP to edit my drawings. It's a free program. I also use it to draw and colour. :D
