Awesome sauce, and it showcases your versatility too.

Have you read a manga called "Me and the Devil Blues" ?

Highly recommend it, it's a great read, though you might enjoy Kangoku Gakuen by the same author more. I know I do :)

You pulled that "chalky" look off pretty well, and the mood to the whole thing is awesome, It makes me feel like I'm looking at a mural in New Orleans, and I've never even been there, thanks for the pleasure of even seeing this bro! Good Work! :highfive: :D
