So I just bought Clip Studio Paint Pro (which is functionally the same application as Manga Studio 5) for $15, an offer that ends on the 14th this month. I used this new illustration software to trace over and color my Queen of Sheba art from last year.

Modern historians generally identify the Biblical Sheba with the Sabaean civilization in southern Arabia, but for this I was working with the old idea of a connection between Sheba and the Great Zimbabwe civilization. The bird statue behind the Queen is based off soapstone sculptures recovered from the Zimbabwean ruins, and its likeness graces the modern Zimbabwean flag.
