Oh my GOD.
I started this with a happy go lucky attitude but... after like 4 days of painting I was starting to grind my teeth together with slight annoyance. I just wanted this to be DONE! FINISHED!
Well I'm happy I did finish, but I thought I'd never manage to refine all the details and auggghhh! It was good practice to learn to be a little more patient so it was useful for me.
Anyway! Sumire means violet, so naturally I wanted her dress to have violet color in it. And since the dress is inspired by kimono, I tried to capture that amazing royal purple that especially older kimono tend to have.
So royal purple goes with what? Well, red white and gold of course! A classic color-combination I think.
I hope you all like this! I will make a wallpaper of this too, a close-up of her face (I kinda wanna cry right now 'cause this is like 15% of actual full-size painting, all the details I worked so hard on are lost, augh!)
The lineart is done again by the marvelously great artist
, be sure to visit his gallery!
And the paint-work & color-scheme are by me as per usual!
