Angel of Redemption


My favourite manga is one of the first ones I read. I collected the first three volumes of Battle Angel Alita by Yukito Kishiro as paperbacks back in the 90's and continued to buy the rest six chapters of the original series as comic books. Originally called Gunnm, the series chronicles the adventures of a cyborg Alita (Gally in Japan), found from a garbage heap and having lost memory of her previous life. Epic, immersive, deep, full of drama and high-octane cinematic action, Battle Angel Alita delivers it all! The original series continues in The Last Order, so far collected in 15 volumes. Here is my humble fan art of Alita. All the credit goes to Kishiro who wrote and drew the fascinating world and characters of Alita!

Freckles


"I love my countless super freckles!!! Because each freckle has their own story, one by one they mark my face, they make up for where my face is not perfect. So I should not allow make-up artists to cover them up one by one - would have saved me all the time I have been stuck in the make-up chair!"

Fire walk with me

A kinda emergency update this one. I have run out of all resources to finish several picture stories under works so until I can replenish my stock, I picked up a few random pictures from the same genre drawn during the past few years.
