Generally, there's not much point in posting pieces on dA over the weekend, thanks to the lessened traffic... but, ehh, what the heck. I'm a g-d freelancer, which means I haven't had a weekend off* since the day I left the Kubert School; Saturday is just another workday to me, albeit a workday where my editor can't reach me. So, in honor of all my freelancer brothers and sisters who work ON the weekend instead of FOR the weekend (à la Loverboy), I might as well post a sketch! (Unfortunately, this one's scanned from a photocopy and not from the original art, so I apologize for the lessened image quality.)
This one's a random, 2000-era sketch of (my version of) Dirty Pair
's Yuri and Kei in their younger (mid-teenage) years, circa AD 2137 or so. Yuri's wearing a top with video-displaying fabric, while Kei's sporting temporary-tattoo-ish imagery rendered by William-Gibson-esque "melanin stenciling"; in my take on the DP's universe, genetic upgrades like Kei and Yuri can vary their skin's pigmentation levels at will.
Can't quite recall for certain, but I think that Kei's top is loosely based on some odd fashion trend from the turn of our century, possibly from one of Li'l Kim's many wacky outfits. Note that grown-up/ grown-out adult Kei would presumably find this top's integral pockets to be of rather less utility, storage-wise. (Ahem.)
Anyhoo, for further Dirty Pair
sketchwork, check my gallery here: [link]*Unless you count conventions as weekends off, which they really aren't.
