Carciphona Volume 2 Cover by shilin Carciphona Volume 2 Cover by shilin
Cover for volume 2 of Carciphona! I hate drawing covers for comics because I suck at drawing this kind of composition Q_Q I don't like how it ended up but I'm lucky I decided to waste time redrawing Blackbird like 3 times AFTER doing line art for her, otherwise it'd look even shittier HAHAHA. I really like how the colouring for her and meron came out though!

:star::star:You can always read the manga for free on here, smackjeeves and on carciphona.com ^^:star::star:

:star: Other art by me

:star: My art book, Toccata!

This is beyond my favorite cover of them all! I own the 4 books, and even as a print this cover stands out so incredibly much! SO awesome to the eyes! :)

Please never say such things again. It kinda hurts those who are not as good as you. :doh:

In case you don't believe the other comments, I'll repeat it again: this is great cover art.

I LIKE this.
Admire the effect of light.
I am not even going to go into the delicacy of line, or the creamy-marble softness of texture...
Monumental.
Too good for the Japanese style.
Go Euro!
