This piece is pristine! The hair is such a great touch, and the typography matches perfectly! I might have even left a comment before and forgot about it. I almost always click this when I see it popping up on my favorites! Its refreshing to look at!

Ahh I love this piece :D I just noticed the 2-dimensional look to the hair compared to the rest of Pepper - quite an interesting look! This is just awesome mate - I wish I could've picked up a copy of the magazine when I had the chance.

Favourited :+fav:

This will sound pretty lame but...

I was browsing the Book Sale store and when I saw this I was like ZOMFGWTFBBQGARLICRICE. I secretly browsed HM when I was like 7 yrs old (oh jesus) but after finally having a copy for myself, I was once again, inspired to draw again...

badfist Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2011  Student Digital Artist
i saw this at a local convinience store and it was wrapped in an all black plastic case, only a part of heavy metal showed and some of the top and for the entire month it was on stock i was like, what the hell is it? i can see a little bit of a illustrated girl so why is it blacked out? hope I'm not looking at porn secretly :frustrated:

I love how the Heavy Metal cover is! :D
mikiefresh Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
Hi Artgerm,

You are one of my favorite digital artist. I only have one puzzling question about this piece: Why doesn't she have a nipple? It make it look a bit unnatural, especially when it appears she is covering her other one. I truly love your work it is very inspiring and I will follow it for ever.
zemzelett Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2011
Thanks to this, I finally managed to buy me a copy of Heavy Metal without worrying about the cashier looking at me funny. Hahaha! :D
Outering Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2011
wow peppers come a long way
GB-Faldrez Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I saw this at my local 7-11 store and thought it was very out of place. But that's mostly because it's far more awesome than everything else around it.
GB-Faldrez Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I really like the pretty colors.
sanmi Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2011  Student General Artist
yay i have seen the comic it looks really awesome
Sinclair-milo Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2011
i love your style!
cadejonegro Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2011
I've just got the issue at a local store, the entire magazine is great, you and your team have fit the heavy metal "subject" like a glove. Congratulations!!!
jinfeng Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2011
Bought the issue yesterday, it is pretty awesome, but it is also kinda of a let down cos I thought there is gonna be a short story centering on your character Pepper, but still very nice and refreshing to see you guys injecting some Asian sensibility in term of art style into the Magazine which so far have been dominated by Western artists. The art is very good, but the stories could be better, may be you guys could work on a longer story that takes up at least half of the book. The Queen's pet is my favorite, and it reminds me a lot of queen's blade; the wacky adventure and the full frontal nudity and busty chicks always get me into a good mood.
