Kallen Nishiki - Code Geass by Minakichan Kallen Nishiki - Code Geass by Minakichan
Kouzuki Kallen Stadtfeld from Code Geass!

I've been hanging out with :iconjtlan: a bit too much recently. He's into mecha musume/mecha shoujo-- girls who are part mecha or have mecha attachments. Originally, I was really adverse to such a thing, but before I realized, I'd bought a Gundam Wing mecha girl poster which is now on my wall...

Anyhoo, Kallen is awesome and I love her. I really have an adoration for kickass, brash, tomboyish tsundere. Actually, I think I might like Lelouch better as a character, but I'll readily admit that Kallen is superior.

So! uh, yeah, this was all done in Illustrator. Or rather, the lineart was handdrawn and vectorized, but all the coloring is vector. I really like cel shading in vector--it's a lot faster and feels a lot cleaner. I feel like whenever I cel shade, I want to be a bit painterly, and vice versa, though.

But anyway, I like the way this turned out-- I like adding gradients to vector. I could have done more, added some shines and stuff, but it's already quite busy so I think it's better that I didn't. The background was actually an accident from playing around the Illustrator filters, but I really liked how it came out. AI filters are pretty cool.

Awesome! I wonder what she would look like in an Iron Man-style suit.
