JJBA: Diego Brando Colored by cogdis JJBA: Diego Brando Colored by cogdis
Diego "Dio" Brando from Steel Ball Run (Part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.)

I knew I wanted to give a shot at coloring this panel, wayyyyy before I ever started reading SBR . . . ("BADASS BATSHIT FABULOUS MOE," indeed!)

Here's how the original scanlated page looked like before I got my grubby little hands on it:

I mostly stayed true to Hirohiko Araki's lines, but I did shift the jaw and change the ear a bit, to better fit my artistic habits . . .

There's a lot more that I could do, but I think I would rather start my own interpretation completely from scratch if I were going to spend more time.

So this was done fairly quickly for fun and education . . .

But I have to say: Oh god, Araki's skill! I'm honored to be alive at the same time as him! :D

Is there a "fave everything in this person's gallery" button?

I haven't got around to doing any Jojo's fanart and you're making me itch for my tablet <3 You're amazing!

Lol! It doesn't seem stalkerish at all. :D I actually really like it because it's hard for me to get to know people if they just follow me on one site and never say anything. :)

And thank-you! You're very talented too! <3333333
