Coloring of this page --> Here

I just felt like being lazy today, yet I wanted to trace with my tablet too. So I dug out some of the pages I wanted to color and here's what you get~ In retrospect, purple didn't give the right feel, exactly, so I added streetlight-ish tones... Also extended it very slightly and edited his mouth.. It originally looked a bit too flat-lined lol.

Did I give this page its worth? :/ *Dilemma over the eyes* I have to practice lineart more, my hand has stiffen lol. So I'll probably do more tracings. :x

I plan on stealing this lineart for another fanart, feel free to suggest characters :P. I love this short manga, it wasn't very complex but there's something sweet about the innocent intimacy between the two friends...

Program: SAI for colouring and tracing, GIMP for signature lol. (Obvious enough that it's mine now? :P)

Time: 4-5 hours. I really really slowed down now. :c

Music: AFU's playlist --> anime-fans-united (sneaky advert y/y?)

Hurray for moar discreet manga~
I have more colourings to do.. Sadly, my mood for colours change and shift a bit much, so wait for me to to get back in the mood for red and dark stuff, VHD-voters. ^_^;

    overall it's still very good, one of his eyes looks slightly lazy eyed or maybe it's that moment of twitching when he's trying to figure out for himself the answers to his own plagued question. I thought from the original to the present is quite nicely done. the color combination adds a fitted, suited, ending to the overall feel of hopelessness, sadness and sorrow I'm gathering from this piece
