Tools used: Adobe Photoshop 7.0, mostly Paint Tool SAI, and wacom graphire 3

This is me trying to explore different palettes. I realized I have never used these colours before, especially in combination with one another. To make it flow better, I ended up painting everything on one layer except for the trail of smoke, which I could not bring myself to scribble over Nal's face. *sob* The only sfx I could not part with was texture overlay. Everything else is done by brushes.

In case anyone is curious:
from left to right: boy-girl-girl-boy-girl-boy-boy

They are my much neglected OC's. It is sad that the only CG I have of them and they are not even wearing their normal clothes...

No I am not having a suit phase shh

I wonder how many bought prints of this at conventions assuming it was Baccano! HA*HA*HA

This is a beautiful illustration, and even without knowing anything about these characters, the excellent job you`ve done with the expressions on their faces gives me a good idea of what their personalities might be like.

All their faces tell a different story. Your art is so pretty *sighs happily*.

The blonde guy with the glasses and grey suite looks absolutely balling! Truly captured the thirties style in in this. I'd almost imagine these characters are part of a anime about he mafia! The boy at the end of the row could be the son of the don given how he looks and mister Green between him and his sister is like their personal bodyguard! At least that is what I imagine when seeing this! Truly did amazingly!
