La Sorbonne - Paris - Watercolor Painting by nicolasjolly

The color scheme and the style that you chose for this is incredible. I absolutely adore how you use the texture and the natural flow o...

Does it hurt? by pollypwnz

:iconiluplz: Ah, just beautiful...and actually, a bit sexy too. :meow: how very unexpected of ditzy 天然 Shion. Nezumi has this appropriately surprised e...

Work in progress: Girl in Winter Kimono: plum blossoms and holly by smallsmiles

Kanzashi in the sketch include: Holly kanzashi. Winter berries. hand dyed hair pin by hanatsukuri and Handmade Ume kanzashi. wedding set. by hanatsukuri

So! I'm not sure of the yellow background. Do you think it's too bold? Maybe something a little softer? Also, the eyes are not quite symmetrical, ahaha...does that bother you? Other than that, I'm pretty OK withthe proportions. Open to suggestions, of course, but yeah, a little nervous. *shy*

...I'm still busy, technically, but I'm SO TIRED of studying. :XD:

I'm also thinking of doing another winter piece-- something mid-winter rather than late winter (technically plum blossoms bloom in February/March)... :iconhanatsukuri: has done some really pretty snowflakes: Winter Wonder. chiffon snowflake tsumami kanzashi by hanatsukuri ... and I could do a pop kimono. :giggle: what kind of girl though? HMM.

Girl in Winter Kimono: plum blossoms and holly
:heart: this is almost all real media... the guache and pastel chalk make up the hair, and copic underlayer with a guache overlay on the face to even out the copic and add texture.... the kimono? Not sure. :giggle: I forgot? Digital overlay though because I ran out of paper...

Conceptually, this little girl is inspired by the recent Miss Japan, Ariana Miyamoto....but I actually used a composite of photos to get this girl. :heart:

Thoughts? I'm not sure about the yellow background. What do you think?

/March note: hi. ^^

I love to write, love to draw. Sometimes I wonder which one to do when...

Current Residence: England I am not from here. ^^




:iconllamathankyouplz: You don't have to say thank you. It's not required. ^^
Of course,:iconnothanksforllamaplz: if you don't want to!! And めっちゃ :iconblinkthanksllamaplz:!! for everyone who gives me one, and :iconyourewelcomesignplz: for giving you one! I give llamas for a variety of reasons:
1) to say "wow, I like your art" (sometimes we're busy, you know?)
2) to say "thank you!" for the favorite, the comment, or the reply
3) just because I saw you (or your icon) and thought, "cool icon" or "ooh, nice name" or want to say hi, but I'm too shy to say anything else/don't know what else to say... ^^; yeah, so awkward. anyway. enjoy your llama.

:iconfloatingplz: :iconfaven1::iconfaven1: Also, feel free to thank for faves. ^_~ I like talking about art...and some interesting conversations start from thank-yous on art. :D
