I name way too many of my pictures "[adjective] Moon." Ah well! XD

Anyways...this is Moka Akashiya from the cute manga and anime Rosario + Vampire. It's about an academy full of monsters and one little human guy stuck in the middle of it!

Normally Moka is sweet in her human form, but here she is in her scaaaaaary vampire form. X3 I recommend the manga - it's really funny and cute and the art is wonderful. :3 The anime is waaaaay too heavy on the fanservice compared to the anime, but is still worth watching.

This was sketched, inked, and coloured in Photoshop. Moon is from a picture my friend took (used with permission) ; tree brushes are made by me. The swirly brushes from the border are from www.inobscuro.com :3

Do you mean: The anime is heavy on the fanservice compared to the manga?
I haven’t seen either, so I wouldn’t know. She’s cute for a red-eyed scary vampire....
Good job integrating the moon - it looks great. Her blazer looks shiny, like plastic. If that isn’t the effect you wanted (maybe it is - like I say, I don’t know this character), you could consider removing or toning down the strongest highlights. Or adding some texture...

:-) Monika ŽNikaŽ Bajzatova replies: "*facepalm* YES! That’s exactly what I meant...anime is very fanservice-heavy compared to the manga. Ooops. 18

Yes, her blazer reeeeally bothers me. I think I will remove the highlights, maybe add really light texture. The biggest problem I see with it, though, is that I made it too tight. I was trying to be faithful to the character design in some scans I saw (and they draw Moka well-endowed and her clothes are kinda tight ><12 I just didn’t pull it off too well.

Thanks for the crits! ^_^"
