..preeetty sure I've used this title before. Ah well.
Drawn for that "Draw this Again" meme, which you can see here:


Was going to wait until tomorrow morning to submit this because submitting this late means no one sees it or comments, or whatever, but bah I say! Those who will, will.

Oh whoops didn't see this until now! I must say, this is one of my favourite things of yours. I really like how you've coloured this, and the sensitive outline of the figure lends itself to the image, making it not too cartoon-esque. I also love the composition. :clap:

This is absolutely gorgeous. Your character art just keeps getting better and better. I love how dynamic this is. It's a huge, huge improvement over the first. I'd love to see you put this out as a comic book one day. I'd definitely be a buyer. :clap:

Awesome painting and a fabulous improvement of course.

I enjoy the energy, yet still protective, stance of the pose.

Something about that right hand of hers looks a bit off though.. I believe the angle of the wrist is to bent? I think the sword hilt should be closer to her belt and her hand turned so we can see the top of her fist. As it is now it feel like she'd have an awkward time pulling out the sword and that the rest of the sword would be running into her body if it was straight ( I know it's a curved sword, but I mean in a horizontal direction.. sorry if that's confusing).

Oh, I just noticed she has ghostly wings, that's cool. Huh, you probably could annunciate those a bit more, I mean they're really cool and I didn't even notice them until just now.

Anyways, awesome work as usual.

I really like the mood and the sense of 'something is about to happen' in this piece. She looks quite badass I must say.

I am both impressed by and curious about the smoke--is it a ~special brush~ (or ~special brush settings~) or something? Nextly, I am trying to imagine the logistics of Mana's outfit and damn do those legglovecuffthings look like they'd be uncomfortable after a while. Because, uh, chafing. What occasion is she dressed up for?
Also: dat architecture :icondatassplz:

haha the smoke is a mixture of manipulating photographs and painting, using the same brush I used for everything else :9!
And her outfit is just her social pillar "gotta look good for the people" outfit. The idea of fighting in a dress probably makes her cringe hahaha!
