kumo no mukou by yume-darling kumo no mukou by yume-darling
Just finished a marathon of Vandread (one of the most underrated anime of all time >:[) and felt all bubbly so I produced this summery piece in the middle of winter. :] Hibiki and Dita are just so cute together... <3 Maybe they're on a date somewhere, post-series. XD I haven't water-colored in a while... I'm terribly rusty. >_>;; The clouds are incredibly weird-looking and I lose at fore-shortening on Hibiki's left arm. -_-;

Title comes from an anime I've seen called Kumo no Mukou, Yakusoku no Basho (Beyond the Clouds, the Promised Place). I took the first part of the title because Hibiki and Dita look like they're floating in the air on a bike... XD;;;

Vandread. GONZO.

Time: 2 hrs

Vandread, what a great anime.
I used to watch it in 2005 and it was, and always will be, amazing.
I always cheered for Hibiki and Dita.
I hope they make a Vandread 3rd Stage.

I doubt there will be a 3rd stage since it's been over for so long already. There's the Vandread Extra Stage novel (which takes place before and after the series), but it's only in Japanese, and very hard to find online. ^^; I want to read it so badly though... >.<

How did you make the skin colors??? Is a kind of combination.
Marvelous, really it is.

Vandread fanart? In paint?! :faint:

Oh I have such an attraction for paintings done in your style of soft colours. I can't not love it :D

the only thing I don't like about it is Dita's eyes: it's too big (it's also not done in the original style). Everything else is lovely -- the sketch style, the bicycle, Hibiki, the colours you chose, and the blue sky background.

"...... one of the most underrated anime of all time >:[ ....."

can't agree more! It needs exposure D<

Aw thanks for the comment. :)

Ah I have a terrible tendency to draw huge eyes on girls. I'll keep that in mind when I draw her next time.
