Just wanted to do a different style of sketch of one of my characters, Kielo. I've been drawing her off and on for a while now and I have a story I want to write about her but I'm not sure I've got a strong enough handle on perspective and urban architecture to really begin the artwork for it. She's really a fun character to think about though.
I have a strong desire to create vertical banners for either side of our booth at Anime Boston this year and this was my idea for the design for my banner. I'd probably zazz it up before I got it printed, obviously, but I like it overall.
It's hard to try and take sketches further. I feel like my sketches have a lot more character than my final work most of the time. So sad.

I started doing a sketch, but then when I drew the girl I thought, "Oh, this reminds me of something." What it reminded me of was a short animation by Osamu Tezuka about a girl jumping through the world. You can watch it here
So since I thought of that, I drew the background. Woop! It was a bit of an exercise. Usually I draw very messy line art, so I wanted to try drawing it a little cleaner. And also cel shading. I haven't "painted" that way in a long time.
For the curious, here is the line art with the sketch under it:
I just thought it looked neat that way. Ha ha.
