Full version in Gallery :3 I guess this piece of artwork is somewhat suggestive, in comparison to a lot of my other artwork ^^; Really enjoyed using Sai to ink this piece of artwork! I end up colouring most of it in photoshop tho ^^;
One of my all time favourite Mangaka is Masakazu Katsura san, I dare say he was possibly one of the (in)direct influence to my evolving art style. I was presented 2 translated mangas of Video girl Ai in my teens by an aquaintance from a comic shop — so touched as I really enjoyed the 2 books when I borrowed them at the time, but couldn’t afford buying the whole set from my pocket money.
I really like how sensual and soft the females he draws, and I strive to become a fraction as good as he is ^^! Years ago, he used to have a website where I actually submitted a fan art to, but unfortunately it is not online anymore ;_;
My dearest friend Saka actually managed to meet Katsura in person during one of the anime conventions in USA and kindly got me a wonderful autograph from him (which I treasure!) Maybe I should try to scan that sometime :P
