As it turns out....

A METRIC ASSLOAD OF WORK REALLY PAYS OFF!!
Pardon my mild profanity up there, but it's five in the morning and I've been up all night slaving away at this piece of work:
I drew the original in a fit of inspiration yesterday evening. I really liked the pose, and when I went to manga studio today (or yesterday, I suppose) I showed it to Jake and he said "It needs color." So...Thursday evening at 10:00 pm I sat down, fired up GIMP, and worked for six and a half hours straight coloring this with an old tablet. I listened to large amounts of Metallica, Black Tide and the Lord of the Rings soundtrack to keep me going. I was tapping away on that tablet for ages.
When I finished it, I looked at it and said "OH SNAP! THIS IS AWRSUM!" or something along those lines. I'm REALLY happy with how it turned out. I'd never tried any serious drawing on the computer before, and the fact that this turned out as well as it did on my first try is very encouraging. Anyway, I'm rather ecstatic but also fried to the bone, so I'm going to go get some sleep now.

Thanks!
We're not doing too bad. A lot of new people, but Alex and Sean still show up pretty regularly, and Blane does when he's not slacking off (which is most of the time). We've got two more books out since you left and they both turned out awesome.
You should see if you can come down here some time this summer. We'd love to have you back, at least for a little while.
