My first ever picture digitally coloured in GIMP - so very, very, very far from perfect, but I'm pleased with it, as it hasn't ended up one big black blob with the words 'I suck' scrawled on it. No lineart, because I tried and failed using my laptop mouse - but hopfully it doesn't look too bad without it.
So, it's basically a coloured version of one of the first sketches I put on here - Chii from the manga/anime Chobits. Pink's probably a cliche colour for her, but it suits the image of her that I have in my head, the ultimate girly girl (so not me).
I'm grateful for any comments or criticisms that you have to offer - though please bear in mind that this is my first attempt and I am totally new to it all - if you have any really good techniques, I'd love to hear about them (as long as you can explain them as well
