Clip Studio Paint/Manga Studio 5 and Photoshop, 2014
It’s Shousetsu Bang*Bang time again, which means I fell off the face of the planet for a bit getting stuff done! This is one of my illustrations for my contribution to Issue 50, “The Golden Rivet,” which as always is gay as gay can be, so be mindful of clicking if you aren’t into reading explicit M/M smut. If you are, well then, you should read the whole issue!
I really tried to push myself with the lighting effects here. I've got a lot of the way to go, but just comparing this to my earlier painting efforts is really heartening. I'm also very happy with those sparks!
True story: for an embarrassingly long time, the welder's name was misspelled. Good job, me.
