This is the cover illustration I drew for the 17th volume of GUNNM LO comics.
On the early days of the New Year 2012, we carried out the rearrangement of our workplace.
This illustration was the first work after the rearrangement.

The ZOTT fighting tournament, which has continued quite long, finally sees the conclusion in the volume of 17.
There are many things happening in its episodes, but I can't spoil materials by revealing them on its cover, so I wondered what the motif would be.
I have never drawn Gally with the Damascus patterned wings within the story in colors, so I decided to do it.
However, the Damascus wings are too much bigger than Gally's body, so if I tried to draw her with the wings being extended widely, Gary would be so small that I couldn't depict her expression.
So I adjusted the composition, making her wings folded, so that the size of Gally's face would be barely enough to show expression.
