Emo Le Gardenie: versions

Continuing my Le Gardenie fan art last time, here's one other that I seemed to have forgotten a few years ago. Just redrawn it, as explained on my Revamps Blog:
The style is sort of inspired by artworks of a certain clothing like (whose name I can't remember) I saw in a magazine, the same magazine that featured this comic series. I was fascinated with the style, mainly the wings & the dripping effect, & one day decided to try drawing it out.
So I'm just using the entry for dumping out the different versions I come up with, cuz I just can't decide which one looks the best.

Here are the JPEG versions on white & grey backgrounds respectively. Just trying to compare which one looks better on a shirt.


Here are the PNG versions, the first one with the lineart stroked white & the second one without.

Le Gardenie: Orange gets a makeover

Been a while since I draw something for Le Gardenie, one of my fave comics back in my high school years. Since the first time I read them I feel like making fanart but I lacked the skills back then.

Lol Orange gets a makeover from the girls... Lemon doing his hair, Apple working on his face with blush aaand poor poor Kiwi is stuck with polishing his shoes, since she's a tomboy & all & doesn't want anything to do with making hairs & faces look pretty. Orange as usual, is confused wondering what's going on.

Here's the transparent PNG version:

Drawing this was quite fun. Initially I planned to do a black & white drawing with very few hues, one bright hue for each character
