"Bookman Jr." by hakumo "Bookman Jr." by hakumo
phfffff long forgotten upload

A contribution to DGM anthology organized by *darkn2ght...what, 1 year ago?? OTL;;;
I was delaying it in hope to finish the work process I have been planning -- which eventually also delayed a whole lot after ( ||゚Д゚)

I recall, apparently at the time there were too many Allen's entries yes you popular pretty albino lad, was suggested if I could draw someone else instead.

WITH PLEASURE :dummy:

My favourite redhead! I was going to go with monochrome colour at first but ended up with just black/white, reading the manga while drawing really influence what I wanted to do -- gets more and more full of black Σ(o_o
It was nice to stay away from colour once awhile :lol: thought i might even have done too much.
Thank you for inviting me *darkn2ght!tho i havent heard back about the book after lol




Work process can be seen here

(my preview is kinda blurry, dont know why :( maybe downloading will make it better?)

So... much... patience. I would have gone banana doing such a complex lineart. The books look amazing and Lavi is in character, all comfy and laid-back! Awesome work!

ahsie Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012
Aw man, I can't remember he number exactly. Well, I guess you can't really say he was 'angsty' since he didn't speak much, but he was in a very bad situation together with bookman (they were captured of sorts).

Go read it! You can't seriously want spoilers can you?

It is FAR from your chap 90 that's for sure... from where you're reading, there's still a while Akuma and Noah story going on before they go back to the bookmans'.

I hate to join in on the broken record of "AHHgggg The Details :wow:" but really they are fantastic so AHHgggg The Details :wow:! The fact that the picture it done in black and white is also impressive because I find I can never make things look as clean and defined with the absence of colour but you managed it.
