i changed my style a little bit for this picture (i used this tutorial: [link] ), i guess i'm making progress in my style of painting. not exactly what i want it to look like tho... The skin color is WAY off, it's too... reddish in my opinion. i might fix it later. background was done in like, 5 minutes, i didn't spend too much time on it.
[ Photoshop CS4 / Painttool SAI (for the background) / Bamboo tablet / 11hrs ]
this is NOT my lineart, i just filled it in. Original Lineart: [link]
