Chibi-Tanan as Cupid. ^_^

Colored this last night, but the internet connection died right before I could post it. ::grumbles at AT&T:: It's my angel-healer-charcter Tanan from my manga, dressed up (or down, rather) as Cupid. ^_^ Again, it's a colored pencil sketch. I was trying for something different with most of the shading/highlighting (with the exception of the hair), and rather like how it worked. I especially love those wings.

Technical notes (because I've gotten in the habit of doing this on Mediaminer and DeviantART): mechanical pencil (Sanford Clickster) .05mm lead, sketchbook paper (hence the roughness in the pencil lines), PaintShop Pro 7, optical mouse. ^_^ And the combined help of the tutorials at Polykarbon, Tasty Graphite, and a FF Fanart site.

I never thought angel booty would look like that. (It looks pinchable, actually...) This is such a cute picture! I think it would be even cuter as a... plushie! (All of your characters should have plushies.) I think the hands and feet could've used more detail, though.

That's pretty cute!

Good job on the character and on the coloring! Love how you've done his hair!
I only find his right (left to us) jawline a bit too shaky and not as smooth as the other outlines if you know what I mean.
Other than that, great job, keep it up eh!

Megumi is right. He needs a plushie! I couldn't find anything wrong...aside from its cupid.

Hah, that's one cute cupid.
I love that little bow of his, and the little arrows/darts, kyuute.^^
Nice hair coloring, I think the eyes look a bit simple in comparisom..but that's just my opinion.^^;;
Anyways, lovely picture Yasei and just in time for Valentine's Day even.^^

^_^ sankyuu, minna-san!

Yeah, I thought that about his right jawline too. I didn't get the pencil line quite as clean as I wanted, and didn't notice until I was actually coloring and cleaning up. ::sigh:: Oh well. I'll do better on the St. Patrick's Day set (of course I'm doing a St. Patrick's Day set, I've got a Cafepress store to stock. ^_^). With the hands, I was going for Ultra-Chibi, where hands and feet don't have as much detail. ::shrug::

As for the plushies, like I already told PA, I'll attempt plushies once I've got the time and money to do so. ::sigh:: I hate being broke....

Oh, hey, to get you guys' opinions (because I trust you all ^_^)...if you had to pick just one of my fanarts for me to sell at Anime Expo, which would you recommend?
