This is the cover illustration I drew for the third volume of refurbished GUNNM LO, officially titled GUNNM LastOrder NEW EDITION from Kodansha.

(Continued from GLO-02)
I had my series work off in May and set a plan to draw five illustrations for the early volumes.
Even if it took three days for each, it would take 15 days for them, so I was diffident about whether I could make the task completed. Consequently, I spent around 3 days for each and finished drawing 5 in about half a month.
The main reason was the repair of the house. Its outer walls were damaged under the influence of the East Japan great earthquake, and workmen constructed a scaffold around the house and during daytime in May they were always restoring there. That made it difficult for me to go out and, on the contrary, I was able to concentrate on the work.

The character for the 3rd volume is Aga Mbadi. As Mbadi's chiseled face is fun to draw, I enthusiastically add colors, but it doesn't seem good enough as my image.
If I had another day, I would like to repaint it.
