After seeing this image, my tingling senses are again activated. I experimented more on gradients and I'm happy with how this turned out. Groove Adventure Rave is such a good story and I feel bad that the anime version did not finish the manga and just ended without even revealing who Elie really is. By the way, I thought the image is rare so I decided to make a card out of it. I'm planning to make a wall of it once I learned how to vector.
Setting that side, I'd like to credit Light Texture 02 by Shioon. I only used one texture. Wow! What's with the wow? I rarely use textures in my works. I swear! Only on my world banners :P
I'm not really into these two couple, but they look so sweet here (even though in the anime they didn't become a couple).
