An (almost) complete sketch of Akisa listening in to her minidisc player. I wanted to draw her listening to her music, which is somewhat an addicition for the character. The expression, however, is a bit atypical for her. It's almost as if she were caught off guard.
The big feature of this sketch is the background. I've never put so much work into one, and never with as much success as well.
The only thing it lacks before inking is a little touchup with a woodless graphite, and the conents of the panel/window in the center left.
