Sakura Tsuushin Fanart (1999)
When I was still living in Canada, there were a group of local anime-inspired artists and we put together a doujinshi to sell at Anime North that year. Most of us contributed a full pic for the cover collage and a story inside, and this was my full pic for the cover. It was inspired by Sakara Tsuushin, a manga by U-Jin. It started a weird thing where I would draw women sitting on wooden floors.
For this piece I used an ancient piece of Adobe software to smooth the black lines, and colored it completely on GIMP with a mouse (how I did most of my work back then until I had the sense to buy Photoshop and a tablet in 2000).
