Halcyon Days of Summer by UNGDI-SEA Halcyon Days of Summer by UNGDI-SEA
Halcyon Days of Summer

If she falls into the water, you're obligated to help her up. And then you start feeling gooey inside but it's probably really just the sticky air around you. But it could be something else...

---

Tried a completely different rendering technique for the character - specifically, that of Takehito Harada's (character artist for Disgaea) although still entirely in my own prefered proportions. This new method turns out to be much faster, better suited to production - for one, it only needed one layer, not a bazillion! (This only applies for the character - since I used to paint every single body part and accessory on separate layers which took a lot of time. It made things easier to adjust after errors though.)

As usual, there's the obligatory background too - this was, in fact, more of an exercise than a serious attempt.

Note: summer started here around March, for those who are stuck under piles of snow in the northern hemisphere right now. ;P
