Going back through some of my pen sketches again, and this oldie was likely inspired off of some of the Renamon images that are actually in dA. I kind of liked Renamon from the Digimon series, mostly because she was a relatively uncomplicated, but well-designed character (that and generally if I wanted to draw her, her body type isn't so far flung from my stylizations of Mewtwo). Of course I took probably a few too many artistic liberties, but that's sort of what art is for.
My approach was pretty simple, after the pen sketch I scanned it, inked over it and colored at a whim. I struggle doing backlighting, but am surprised that this image held its own. Also tried the dreaded sunset beach theme that I am also not too terribly good at. Overall I'm happy with the colors, and the added bonus that this came out almost perfect wallpaper size prior to tweaking. Download for the 1024x768 wallpaper is available.
