Toshinho's Blade Collector by falingard Toshinho's Blade Collector by falingard
For :icontoshinho:'s colouring contest, as described here.

It is definitely FUN to colour a piece like this. I have not had so many chances to do that in the last months. One of the things requested for the contest was to cover the character's luggage with various corporate sponsor logos... at first I was going to design some fictional ones, so as not to use real-world company logos, but that proved far less entertaining than the rest of the colouring process, so the idea came to me to use real-world webcomic logos instead. Everybody loves webcomics, right? This is what inspired the "panels" in the background afterwards. Silly? Eh. Self-promoting? A little bit. Awesome? I don't know! I'm definitely proud of my colouring on the character herself, at least.

Two Rooks looks a bit too serious for me, but OH MY GOD True Magic is AMAZING! <3

The panels in the background look great, although I probably wouldn't have caught on to the link between them and the logos if you hadn't said something about it. :)

As I said elsewhere, I admit that they look more like floaty sci-fi monitors than anything else XD But I'm okay with that!
