Ura Junes Colored Page

So against my better judgment I recently agreed to color a manga page on commission (I say “against my better judgment” because I really shouldn’t be taking any extra commissions right now). The page in question is from a doujin called “Ura Junes” by Hibakichi and Kisaragi Yuki. This particular page is by Hibakichi (I believe, I’m not 100% certain) and features Yu Narukami, Yosuke Hanamura and Teddie from Persona 4. I’ve drawn these characters on commission before (from the same client), but in this case I only provided the colors.

Attached below is the original page for those who’d like to see it untouched.

Persona 4

Let me start off by saying I’m not happy with this picture. For some reason it never really clicked for me, and there were additional problems while working on it, but in the end the client was happy with it and that’s what counts. I’m still posting it here for those of you who will also like it like he did, because my taste isn’t the beginning and end of what people can enjoy. 🙂

I don’t want to get into the issues I had with this pic, in case doing so might spoil it for people who do like it, but I will say I like some of the characters used. I’ve never played a Persona game, but I’m pretty familiar with the Shin Megami Tensei brand and I typically like the characters. P4 has several female characters I really dig, but I also like Teddie (the blonde whose face is obscured) quite a bit, and wouldn’t mind doing a more concentrated picture some time featuring him. Kou (the bluish-grey-haired one with his feet sticking out) was also pretty cute in the anime episode focused on him, but I don’t know if I’ll ever draw him again. I don’t really care for the other two guys in this pic, though.

The real good news, though, is that this is the last of the commissions I had lined up. I can now focus more on my own things, as commissions will remain closed for a while yet. I still have some that will be coming around when the month rolls over, and I also I have a few special arrangements with friends that might crop up. Besides those, though, I’m looking forward to focusing on my comics, pumping out a few more Near Pokédex entries alongside a bunch more standalone pics. I’m really excited to getting back to deciding my own fate for a while until I’m desperate for money again.
