I had a rush of inspiration to do art from the anime Blue Seed after I finished watching it a few weeks ago, but this picture sat in my hard drive half-colored for months after I lost interest in it... >__< i dug it out a few days ago and forced myself to finish it since it wasn't a bad picture and I needed more practice with cel-style. The sloppiness of the colors is really obvious after my laziness settled in, but other than that it's all right. ^^; Anyways, this is Kaede (whom I like better than the main character Momiji) Her outfit looks roman/greek-ish, ne? XD

whoa............dang. I'm an anime artist also and can understand where you get inspiration! I never seen some of these shows or mangas or games where you go these characters from (Except my FAV couple in FF, Rinoa and Squall!!!) I'm just impressed. I'm just learning how to do this on the computer and hope to be as good as you are some day soon!

Good luck,

*_* wow... thats good... i don't even have a clue how to do stuff like this on the computer. i likes it very much.

*glares at Mephi* back off dude. constructive criticism is nice, even just plain critcism but you are just plain evil.

anyways, this is a very beautiful piccy and it deserves to be in a book. ^_~

Lol Mephi...cel style, cel - animation cel...not manga. So once again you try to be mean and just look dumb.
Honestly this wouldn't be my favorite picture of yours, probably because I'm just so fond of a few of the others, but I really love the close up on the face. You got a great blend of soft cg and harder animation style. I love her eyes especially...so gorgeous ^^
