Second summer picture of the year! One more to go! W00t!!
I've been told numerous times that Akemi looks hot in this picture... If I weren't asexual/straight, I'd be inclined to agree. Lol.
The background was done with miscellaneous MS brushes, hence the "painting-like" style to it... Not sure if I like it or not.
General coloring and the sky's blur: Paint.Net
Everything else: Manga Studio EX
