I drew this back in September 30th of 2019, I just didn’t have the confidence to paint it till now.
I originally came up with the concept of this piece after I saw the Dora the Explorer movie. She had all sorts of weapons in her backpack and at one point even used a yoyo as a weapon. And since at that time I was getting into the Sukeban Deka shows and movies I ended up coming up with this idea of painting this crossover.
For the painting itself I decided to use the cover illustrations from the books which are absolutely beautiful. They helped me push in terms of colors so that they didn’t look flat. I quite like the way it came out. I hope to improve further from here on out.
Hasta la proxima,
