This is a real oldie of mine. I drew this back in early High School. It was the first Anime piece i ever drew. It's pretty much an exact rip from that famous pose that Alita/Gally is always seen in from the Gunnm anime.
I found this again recently and it doesn't look quite as good in condition as i remember doing it. Oh well. Bunch of smudged pencil lines and yellowed paper is to be expected from time to time especially if your not using archival acid free paper. Guess good ol' school notebook paper doesn't make the cut when it comes to art.
This was way before i decided i didn't want anime as my style, and i was really proud at the time of it. I can still remember how much time it took and difficulty i had doing it too. It was the first major confidence booster i ever had as far as doing any kind of art. I thought Iíd post it up as one of my scraps now. I doubt anyone will notice it here, but thatís ok by me. It's old, and Iíve learned so much since then, but it's a jewel Iíll hang on to forever.
