Akiko Daimon by Justin Long v2 by elee0228 Akiko Daimon by Justin Long v2 by elee0228
Akiko Daimon: Mahjongg Manga Muscle Girl commission by the excellent Justin Long. I first saw artwork from this artist in *pumpmonger's gallery, and he's commissioned several awesome images from the artist like these:



Was happy to find out the artist was open for commission and asked him for his take on Akiko. I liked first sketch submitted. Asked for some minor changes around the arms and the chest. I'm a fan of smaller joints, and felt they were a little large in the original. The second pic looked good, and I asked him to continue.



He submitted the prevoius colored version and asked if there were any changes. I felt Akiko needs her traditional green headband and asked him to make that change, along with some minor color adjustments. The skin tone is a bit lighter in this version and the color on the lips as well. It's subtle, but I think I like it. The artist is available for commission, so check out his webpage for the info. Very easy to work with. He's also going to auction off the physical lineart for this piece, and I'll post that info here when he puts it up.

Hit the download link for the full 1200x1855 version.

Edit: Justin Long is selling the inks for this piece on eBay.

Cool. It's funny that you call her Aki. Whenever I see that, I think of Masschine's character who happends to be named Akiko too. :)

Haha. Yeah...she sometimes comes to mind too. I find it somewhat remotely ironic though.

The drawing seems a bit brighter in this version. If there are any other differences, I can't tell. Great drawing of a gorgeous woman. :D
