Pencil on Strathmore 300 Series Bristol board (9 x 6). Scanned in and inked in Illustrator CS4. Then colored by me in Photoshop CS4 64-Bit. Kimono design was actually done in Painter 10. The background was constructed using texture photos I had taken. The out-door background was painted in Photoshop CS4 64-bit.
This is to be the Art Show Badge for AnimeFest 2009. So Captain, I hope you like it
