Once, some time ago, I visited an anime convention and spotted a figure of this character in the dealers' room. I was thinking about spending more time drawing, and I thought, "Aha! I shall buy this and use it as an artistic reference!"
Maybe not in those exact words, but the point is, I never did anything with it. Until last week, when I went on youtube and picked a photoshop tutorial and finally got around to drawing this figurine. So... here it is.
She is Maggie Cheung from the TV series Read Or Die, or Read Or Dream, or R.O.D. The youtube tutorial was by a guy who does a webcomic called Jayden and Crusader.
And now you know the fascinating story behind this drawing!
