Made from an old picture. I saw the part I used in the first panel and felt that I had to do something with it, so I did some threshold magic and fiddled around with it in MSPaint afterwards. Made some nify shying shade things too. I made the one used in panel 2 throughout from scratch though.
I used to watch Beyblade. Back when I was still amusing myself with SatAM shows. Man, I miss the lineup called... iduuno. Somelike like "Made like Japan" or something. They had interestin japan tidbits of information that I can barely remember.
But back to Beyblade. You know. The anime. With giant phantasmic beast spirits rediding in tiny chips. The beyblades that spin for several minutes while sparkily clashing against one another 20 times and flying several feet in the air. Then when you buy the toys, you're game ends about 20 seconds after release, or after the first or second clash. MARKETING, YAY.
