Great drawing and great title!!
I like it.
and, I am wondering if I can have your permission to use it in my website, VegTomato, [link] , to advocate the art of tea and zen? I will link back and credit it to you.
best,

Thanks you! :)

And sorry, but I don't feel comfortable you using the picture, even if you credit me - since the character in it is someone else's creation. You can ask him =creaturecorp and I guess if he's ok with it too, you could go ahead.
Thanks for asking!

yeah man, line art super smooth. Pls tell me that's handdrawn or some vector based ilustration, because if your hand is that solid in photoshop I'm really getting old.

Nope, this is tablet drawn. I use openCanvas however, Photoshop imo is really only good for digital paintings and colouring. oC feels much more natural to draw in.
Try it some time, it's also really inexpensive compared to PS. [link]

Also it's really more of a matter of making really fast strokes and redoing these (Ctrl+Z) until I'm pleased with one rather than inking lines carefully and slowly. Another way to make digital lineart more smooth.

Elektra looks AWESOME in your style! I love the soft tones you used, the background is lovely, the hands are awful cute and I love that hair!
