Ok, let’s see if I can one up J.
This illustration has nothing to do with Christmas. It’s a Gunslinger Girl fanart I started in October, but never had the chance to finish. I had a partially complete, cell shaded version of this picture, but I decided not to complete it. I couldn’t get crisp enough lines cell shading with a mouse, so I opted for something not so neat.
This is done in Open Canvas 0.68. Everytime I use that program, I’m more appreciative of it. All the effects are controlled by these three little sliding things, and I’ve never figured out exactly how they work – I never got a manual to go with this thing, and I’ve never bothered to look it up. Someday I’ll learn to use this thing, but for now, in the interest of time and for the lack of skill, you’ll have to live with this somewhat sloppy work.
This lineart is in pen, too.
