I actually finished this last night/early this morning. But I was so sleepy that I wanted to have a second look at it before I posted it. In the end, I'm so ridiculously happy with how Artemio looks in the 2nd panel~ He looks like a strong man from the village protecting his little girl~! (♥ω♥ ) ~♪
A little description of Artemio's attire:
The Barong Tagalog, more commonly known as simply Barong (and occasionally called Baro), is an embroidered formal shirt which is considered the national dress of the Philippines. It is lightweight and worn untucked over an undershirt.The sheer fabric of the barong is surprisingly durable. Artemio's barong is longer than usual though, and I added a belt to it, just because I wanted to stylize it.
The next page will challenge all my shonen knowledge. I haven't drawn action scenes in a while, let's hope I can pull it off. σ(≧ε≦ｏ)
