NT Index v04 376 by DaDonYordel NT Index v04 376 by DaDonYordel
Original art by Kiyotaka Haimura from the 4th Shinyaku Toaru Majutsu no Index Light Novel.

I do not claim this artwork as my own.

Lore:
GREMLIN, specifically, Othinus, wraps Baggage City into a distorted dimension that increases the likelihood of tragedy, just so Othinus can confirm that a Holistic Esper can come into being. The true Kamijou Touma arrives at the end of the novel, and returns Baggage City back into the real world. Here, he appears before Marian Slingeneyer who is about to kill Kumokawa Maria, a fellow student of Academy City,

About the work:
After three days of having no Internet connection, I arbitrarily decided to color this part of the novel, because why the hell not? Originally, when I was coloring it, I always wanted to use the sunset as a contrast to the night scenery that has fallen the real Baggage City, instead of the distorted one. However, when I was originally reading the novel, I pictured it to be quite overcast and still quite daytime.

This is the second color adjustment for the colorjob. It shows the dull overcast feeling of Baggage City, but at the same time, you can feel that it is already near sunset with the yellow tint and all. There are other versions of this that I have uploaded somewhere around the internet if you look hard enough. The first iteration is a red sunset, something that I thought would fit the bloodbath that happens in the 4th NT novel, and the 3rd iteration is the classic golden sunset.
