I like the way you color in the picture with vertical strokes. Makes it look almost as if it's raining.

This is incredible. A really nice and original style for coloring, always wondered about trying new styles for anime, but this try certainly cuts it. Great artist, I always liked your work. Glad that i found your DA page.

I guess exploring can lead you to good things. The rain reminds me of a sun shower. Very pretty.

Wow...I'm surprised: I restrained myself from going into fangirl mode over a Spike Spiegel fanart picture.
