This is the cover illustration I drew for the first volume of refurbished GUNNM LO, officially titled GUNNM LastOrder NEW EDITION, which was published by Kodansha.

As I had switched publishers from Shueisha to Kodansha, the comic series of GUNNM LO published by Shueisha will be out of print when all the books in stock are sold, so Kodansha decided to publish older volumes of GUNNM LO with refurbished covers.
On the first meeting we had talked of utilizing the existing illustrations for them, but after all I got to draw a new illustration.
(Continued on GLO-02)

It was the main character Gally, of course, that was chosen for the first volume.
What I took care of while drawing is to try not to make her face stern too much.
However, I intended to draw her "uncertain mouth", which means she is not actually smiling.
About the color, I aimed to express a transparent feel with whiteness and redness of skin.
