Watanuki, manga coloring and icecream

[001] My default summer!userpic felt a bit too blue (literally) so I adjusted it for a bit more purple and stuff :D

[002] Don't usually go *A* over manga coloring but the two posts here and here at thecandystand have such love coloring on the manga pages - particualarly the skin!

[003] bloody_american pointed out that Baskin Robbins is having a 31 cent Scoop Night soon - and suddenly I wish I was still in the USA.

[004] nokiirat pointed out this fabulous pic from the new XXXholic OAD - Rou:

TBH I hate the way Clamp tied TBC with XXXholic so when the former got incredibly convoluted, the latter also got dragged along. Still, I'm going to watch XXXholic: Shinmuki and follow it up with Rou for the Watanuki bliss XD
Ooh, I love the colouring. It's simple and lovely. I think the key is getting right skin tone colour which I can never get right.

I haven't watched the new xxxHOLiC OAD yet. I keep forgetting. ;w;
that manga coloring is so great! Wow! I really want to learn how~
maybe I can find tutos there XDD rofl they just have one XDD
Doumeki better be on the other side of that sofa, dammit! D: And dayum Watanuki got fiiine. xD
I'd really like to read TRC but I'm a little intimidated by how I will probably also have to read XXXholic to really get the entire picture lol. But some day!

That is a beautiful picture, btw. Very compelling lol

I haven't watched a lot of the animated xxxHOLIC, mostly because FukuJun's voice is too whiny for me here 8D Though I can't wait for them to animate the after-timeskip, because asdfghkl it will be filled with keysmash-inducing hotness 8D
