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

I was browsing through some ones favorites and recogonized this picture as one that my friend Conner drew. I thought maybe he changed the name of it, because we call him 'Con' for short and the name 'Con'tempt...just makes sense.
anyways, i'm not sure if he refrenced this off of something as well or if you happened to stumble upon his picture somewhere else. Heres his:

and the colored version:

let me know what you find out! =]
