xxxHolic colo: “Sweet Kouhane”


So this is... Grown-up Kouhane, from xxxHolic Rou, chapter 209. Several panels that I brought together, actually, not a page in itself.

I just thought grown-up Kouhane was really, really beautiful. That face she's making in the bottom panel... hanyaaaan <3
I instantly wanted to color her. Well, this also registers at my first attempt at coloring with the GIMP!!! Yes, I've recently switched to Ubuntu and installing, launching and using GIMP without regular crashes took quite some time. However now that I've learned how to use it, I must admit that it's even more practical than Photoshop - not even mentioning the fact that it costs about 1000€ less. (damn you Photoshop creators!!)
However there is no "overlay" mode nor "clipping mask" tool, and I miss those two dearly :[ I have to make do with what GIMP has to offer, but I don't really know the software that well for now, so... but all in all, you can see that it's basically the same kind of colo as I've been doing lately, no big changes.

Nothing to add - hope you like it!

v-v-v-very good choice *w*

I'm not sure which one would be easier to netten. I guess I'll try with both.

And I'd love to read some Kenren/Tenpou fanfiction :)
Those two don't get all the love they deserve :o)
(unless you don't want to write about gaiden)

Ok :D ive never written gaiden before but i will do my bestest for you :) plus they are my favorite gaiden pair <3 So i should be right :P Just to check thou, :) Are you alright with any rating or would u like me to turn the smut down (dont wanna write something u wont enjoy after all)
Oct. 18th, 2010 03:54 pm (UTC)
Ah, you were right to think of that, you never know what people want to read after all. But as far as I'm concerned, any rating is fine! I've read... all kinds of things... and written... all kinds of things; so you can write the nuttiest, smuttiest fic ever and that would still be fine with me XD

Just do whatever you feel like to do ^_^
