I also like Masami Obari. The guy gets some shit for his direction but he is a fantastic animator and his designs are always energetic regardless of if they manage what they set out to be or not. It's a shame Virus Buster Serge is such a confusing and boring watch because by concept alone it was gold.
Really ncie character qwork. Love the detailing on her katana and saya, and the colours overall are really juicy Nicely done.
How much linework do you do for a piece like this? The finished piece has a really good balance between having strong outlines where they are needed, and the colour work showing the rest of the details - something I find hard to achieve if I've made my lines/inks too accurate before colour work.
thanks, Maieth! Time wise I'm kinda slow. the original drawing is approx 14x17 inches. I didn't have any sort of sketch of the concept done, so i made it up as i went along. so that makes the process slow to complete. if i had to guess, it may be about 12 hours of line work. i don't do inking, i create the different line widths using a mechanical pencil.
