Serial Experiments Lain! I only got into this series recently (which I'm still beating myself up for), but aaaah I'm starting to love the heck out of it.
This was a tinkered version of an old quick drawing I made earlier, aha. It's a bit rough, but I hope you guys still like it!
Drawn on Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop CS2

Hahaha, all thanks to Yoshitoshi Abe. Sweet frick, I'd kill to have a vision like he does.
Uwaa go go go! This series isn't that long (just 13 episodes), and each episode is like a glorious creepy-yet-moe acid trip-pish journey.
And uwaaaah they have those artbooks in libraries there? I'm jealous... We gotta buy those for big money here... _(:"3_/
AHAHA I don't get any more of those days anymore. School is killing me very slowly.
And AAAH DANGIT, I'M REALLY JEALOUS NOW,,,,
In here, the only place to get artbooks are in special bookstores for imported books... And the only one who'd own them are merch-nerds with fat cash. Unlikely we'd get them in any public place.
YOU'VE POSTED IT.Some dark art. I like it.Your art style looks slightly different here, but it's pretty. Same to your colouring style, it suits the drawing.I also like the letter texture thing and the background.A bit sketchy, but it's extremely neat, unlike my sketches.I'm just saying stuff here and there, but actually I have nothing to say. I guess it's a bit too simple to put critique on it, comparing with your other drawings.It's awesome, alright.
Yeppers! Although this might be the last thing I submit for a while; unless a miracle happens, and I manage to whip up something good in a short time.
And yeah, I tried to imitate the art guy for Lain's style; Yoshitoshi Abe. Especially the coloring; which I had a butt of a hard time trying to figure out. |"D
I actually added the letter texture thing and BG elements after I finished the picture... I hope I didn't butcher it, as I literally worked on an already-comressed .PNG file, eheh.
Waaah this is basically a sketch with near-all-out coloring though. Which is why most of the sketchiness/messiness is masked by the colors and detail and such. _(:"D_
Yesh, I didn't have much grand plans for this, as I already finished it before hand. I wish I could've made it like a massive promo poster-like thing, but I didn't have any ideas. ;-;
Thank you though, Thacchi! I'm glad you like it!
AHAHAHA GAWSH, BZPOWER, I wish I could revert back to 4th grade elementary school, the time when I first set foot in that site. And when I was still a huge avid Bonkles fanatic/collector. And when I met all you cool people (from scary admin-type people to fellow noobs like me). And when I managed to post my irrelevant artworks in the CoT subforum as my own personal gallery dump.
Aaaaaah, all those pleasing memories...
Too bad I can't relive them right now, as time's moved on too much...
And aaaaaaahahaha, so that's how we met here? Time really did fly fast then... I joined around 3 years ago
Huehuheuhe I've heard it for ages too, but one day I decided to actually look it up, and once I found out that it has this creepy-cute girl as the main protagonist, I decided to marathon it immediately. And it was actually pretty damn awesome, definitely one of the darkest/freakiest anime I'd ever watch.
And wowee thank you Dess bro! I'm glad you like my arts, even the gritty dark ones!
