Benten by shaolinfeilong Benten by shaolinfeilong
Not the kids' cartoon, people. Think 80's anime.

Urusei Yatsura? Lum-chan? Ring a bell?
Yes.
Best alien biker chick in the history of alien biker chicks.

Benten (c) Rumiko Takahashi

This piece doesn't come together for me, but I worked on it long enough to post. I almost forgot how much I hate doing lineart.

EDIT:
Guys, thank you SO much for the DD! I had a pretty bad weekend and coming home to see it just brought the biggest dorkiest smile to my face. I really, really appreciate it! :love:

that's a lot of favs but so little comments!!
this actually got me interested in reading more of Rumiko Takahashi's work. I've only read Ranma 1/2.
Benten seems like a badass character. I think this drawing is perfect.. I love the coloring it looks almost realistic in some parts.
the foggy/cloudy stuff is a really nice effect, too! :)

Heh heh. I came here reading "Ben Ten" and thought hey, that's not a familiar character.

I can't judge the accuracy of your portrayal of the character, as I am too young to know what they look like, but this was very nicely done.
