Interesting... Traditional ay... I find it so hard to believe... Sure??? Two questions then, what type of pens are you using to do this and How is it that you get all of these perfectly geometric visual textures with even stippling technique that manga always do?
I love your character (Obviously) he's drawn really well! The detail is impeccable and then to top it off, roses, i love roses. Oooh! And a butterfly!! You ever heard that song? Roses and Butterflies by Making April?
