This looked really awesome until I decided to grab my dip pen and ink this by hand. I wish I hadn't done that. It was great practice, but I kind of miss the old sketch. And then I decided to color it in GIMP, which I'm not too sure about either. I mean, it's ok, but I'm such a sucker for lineart. Perhaps I'll upload the lineart to my scraps later and provide a link here.
Anyway. Let me know what you think of it.
EDIT: here's the link to the lineart
