In the end I tried to color this digitally:
It was an experiment, and I'm quite pleased of it, considering I colored it with mouse...I should go back practising traditional coloring, but playing with textures is too much fun!
Anyway, I'm happy about the colors tues, I wanted to make a dark picture in line with Aki's feelings.
