Saiyuki colo 'Sunset Hakkai' by Xupz Saiyuki colo 'Sunset Hakkai' by Xupz
  This one was a resquest from rachel_reicheru on lj. It's not from any part of the manga, I think, probably a splash page or something... Quality of the scan wasn't awesome, and I'm not that much of a cleaner, so I did my best... I actually erased some of the original shadows which really looked messy on my scans, to replace them with my own.
  So this is... “smexy Hakkai”! But with lightings, to make it a “sunset Hakkai” (... 笑) . My first attempt without lighting effects had a slightly different look; I changed the colors of the sky and some other small details, you can check it over here: CLICK. It took me a lot of time, I just couldn't make my mind on the colors (I changed, like, ten times the color of Hakkai's shirt, and am still not sure about it.)
  Damn, it's so hard to play with colors.

Nice coloring! I've been looking for a colorized version of this one... I believe the scan is from a Saiyuki Interview (the interview is available in KonnyakuHonyaku in LJ)

This is very beautiful. I love the etched effect that it has. It makes it seem even more like a work of art.

I hadn't thought about that, but it does look a bit like etching, I guess. Thanks a lot for your comment!

\o/ That's really the good thing about getting commissions. I love fangifts, really, it's like Christmas or your birthday, you see them coming and yet you know you'll be surprised :D
I'm looking forward for your fanart - but if you're really busy, don't worry about me, I can wait n_n

And thank you for taking the time to comment so often. It really means a lot to me to know my work is appreciated!

Your work is very, very, very much appreciated!!! :D
And oh goodness, at the very latest, I get the picture to you over Thanksgiving, when I have a week long break. But that is at the very, very latest! XP

Also, a question: the quote at the bottom of your comments. Where is it from? XD

Oh, lol. That came from a xxxHolic fanfic, actually. I remember laughing so hard at that line I thought I had to put it somewhere. dA's signature was free... and there we go.

Although I must ask this: you do know that I did not draw the lineart, right? This is an original picture by Minekura Kazuya, I only added the colors. Sorry to insist if you had already understood that, but I would not want to take credit for something I didn't do. Because, indeed, Minekura-sensei is an amazing artist :)
