Took longer then originaly expected but I guess it was well worth it :D

The sketch was old (made now 1 and 1/2 months ago in art class) but I never had the time to scan and color it but now I wish to end my holidays with one of, and I dare say it, best works yet :)

I wanted to make more Zone fanart but I also wished to put Lenalee in it so, here we are. I didn't make Robin's scar becasue I wanted her to be human in this (those who read Zone know what I am talking about).
I took a fancy in drawing Yosshii (the cartoon bunny that pops around on random ocasions) and there is a little reason why I made his eyes green (other then the fact that I hadn't got the time nor resorces - net fell down - to find a image reference for the colors :P
Tim is there becasue I like drawing him :D

Do not ask what this is exactely supose to be, use your imagination, try a guess and maybe you'll get inside my head :P

About the work: It sure doesn't look it, but this was a real chalange. The baloons are a good example at how I had to use the opacity at certain places where it usualy gets transparent and at Lenalee's cape (?) I used kind of the same tehnique, only a bit diferent - got a firt layer for the back/inner paartof it and another to top that, both of 'em set at semi-transparenty to make it look like real material (I shark the image a litle so I don't know if you can realy see it)
The stars and ribbons are clearly vectores but the rest of the shades were made using the brush tool (I need practice) and except for that, I don't know wha else is there to say.


sketch took about 1 hour, inking took 5 and the coloring took 5 days
tools used: regular HB pencil, inking pen as well as gel pen, photoshop and tablet

    Nice piece here, the mood is really joyous. The red and gold theme fits the mood well, though it is a bit heavy ; and i'm not too sure about the random flower patterns in the bg.
    But coloring and shading are great, especially that light line-shading you use.

    Thumbs up :D
