ahhhhhhhhhg. ;;

..so. this was vaaaaguely referenced by THIS little avatar i saw on some (non-art-related) forum. (i shit you not.) yes, i am not wonder woman.. though, i can't remember the last time i used any sort of reference, as 99.9% of the time i.. don't. <s>anyway, if anyone recognises the drawing (photo?), and can point me in the direction of the creator, i'd be much obliged.</s> i've been informed the icon was from the cover of princess ai: volume 1, illustrated by misaho kujiradou.
this is the first anywhere-near-finished thing i've drawn in 4 or 5 months, heh. her lower leg is not perfect; i don't need anyone to harp on it. :3;; a few hours in painter7.

lyrics from cat power - nude as the news. can't get it out of my head.

er. i missed you, collective dA audience/artsyfriends. <3

you did a great job i rlly like it it is goin on meh faves :D

i still think its funny that ai is all bassed off courtney love

even though courtney is a big part of this manga

i still hate her with a passion

i also think its funny how there are numerous quotes of kurt cobain's and how they mention him in the 3d book
