    Ah, what is that in reference too. D: It looks hilarious.

    Also, the image of the lady with the blade on her arm is great.

    I dunno if I'm hangin' out in the CAP forums too much, but I almost thought your latest artwork [which is really awesome BTW] is a gijinka of your banchou pineapple! ^o^ The hairclips made me realize by mistake.

    She's Kobushi from a manga called "Kongou Banchou". Chanced upon it while looking up for reference on Banchou visuals and I decided to read it; I don't regret it, it's pretty cool

    That Kobushi art is incredible. I heard of Kongou Banchou years ago, but never read it, just know it from people's sigs and avatars on another forum.

    You should give it a try! It's done too, so no waiting for weeks for new chapters and stuff.

    Not sure what you mean, but there's no shortcuts to any of this; I just draw

    Yilx: It's done? That's even better. Reading a story in a single go is the best. Hopefully, its available here.

    Epic tank. Incredible forest. 0 _0 That must have taken a while.

    Also, you probably already know this, but the author of Kongou Banchou is already working on a new series. I can't remember the name, but its a shonen action I think.

    I've already said this, like, three times, but that image is easily one of the best pieces you've crafted thus far. The battlers, the hazards, the sunset, it att looks so well. The dynamic colors also plays a huge part in letting the image come alive.

    My only complaint (which I realised later heh ugh) is that the spikes on Roserade's side could be somewhat smaller, since it's rather hard to directly step on them in Rose's size. :V

    But seriously, damn.

    While that's an unusual location for a cactus girl, she definitely fits in with the vibrant autumn colors all over the place. The sheer amount of detail put into the forest plants and rocks is astounding and I can only speculate the number of strokes that was put into this piece.

    Cactus girl does, however, look more simple in appearance compared to her surroundings. While I understand that that's due to her design, some additional strokes or textures to make her seem less smooth would probably help her blend in better with the rest of the image.

    Also, could you post it as a 1920x1080 version? I'd love to have it as a computer wallpaper.
