[Edit]
Blimey!! i done it again!! i forgot the kanji!!! dont worry its there now lol
---------------------------------------------------------

This is the finished color version of my lord of the sand sketch.

This pic totally drawn from scratch in photoshop, inked with the pen tool and coloured with a mix of cel shade for gaara himself and paint style for the sand.

This is the first pic that i've done in this way and i gotta say that i'm extremely chuffed with it!!
Lex.

Sketch:[link] , Lineart:[link] and Color: Lex (me)
Created using: Adobe Photoshop CS3
Time Took: Approx 6 hours in total (sketch, lineart and color)

Gaara © Masashi Kishimoto

Very nice! You did an especially good job with the wrinkles in the front of his shirt. That part looks like its straight from the anime!
