This is the illustration for the pinup of ULTRA JUMP December 2000. It is also used for the cover of GUNNM Last Order comics volume 1.
It is rare that I can draw without considering the space for the title. Thinkin over 'Raifa', I tried to make composition that had direct impact and depth and dynamic motion.
To explain Gally's pose, at the same time she caught the enemy's punch by her left palm, she stepped forward and hit her right vertical fist into the enemy's flank or oxter.
As for technique, it is same as 'Gally for the cover'. But usage of watercolor-brush reduced and almost all of her overcoat and body were painted by paster.
I drew the character and background seperately and composited by Photoshop. Shadows on pipes were made by Photoshops's lever-control.I wavered over Gally's body color, and decided red-copper color. She may looks like "COBRA" by Buichi Terasawa.
