Hooray!!! It's finally done~
This took me forever because I was trying to improve my sense of color and achieve more luminosity in the image. I tend to ignore the background in my images and focus on the figures first which isn't right. So usually my people/characters come out super, while the background is somewhat lacking cuz all my energy gets expended in one area, rather than over the whole piece evenly.
I was inspired by Miyazaki's film Howl's Moving Castle for the background, Area 56
for the robot and overall concept and Jason Chan
for the figure.
Thanks to gamefan84
