Sumire by juuhanna Sumire by juuhanna
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 :iconmeganerid:, be sure to visit his gallery!
And the paint-work & color-scheme are by me as per usual! :aww:
Medium: Photoshop.

Just astonishing.

Sumire-chan's overall styling & demeanour has all the qualities of an austere, noble & powerful lady both internally & physically. The de-constructed styling of her HanFu'/Kimono is unique in that it both amps her character with a very bold feel through thick layers & accessories but with enough space and divided layers allowing for display of healthy figure (Especially with her soft yet firm upper arms & sharp clavicle lines). The ornamentation is also well balanced b/w the plain fabrics, and they complement each other rather than steal attention. :star::heart::star:

Simply a cornucopia of wholesome colours & forms, also this design evokes your unique Asian-based fusion style [link] and it would be interesting to see where you will further take such fantasy styles to. Love it!

You're Very Welcome!
Your colourwork and its selections here blended perfectly with the overall designs while reflecting namesake (すみれ=violet).

Ahah, yeah I checked the meaning of her name when I saw the line-art and it helped me make up my mind about the colors of her clothes. ;)

What brushes to do you prefer to use? I love the way you shaded the piece.

I use just one brush, it's a Photoshop standard round brush (hard edged, hardness at 100%, with opacity and size set to follow tablet pressure).

Ah, onpa mielettömän kaunis väritys! Vitsit nuo varjot menee ihanasti~~

Her face is coloured especially well, somehow I reeeeally like it~ And the shadows on the purple kimono look amazing and the sleeves look wonderful, because there are so many folds, wow...~~

Kiitos! Teen nykyään erikseen ekaksi valöörit harmaasävyinä ja sitten värit eri layerille harmaasävylayerin alle. Vähän niinkuin grisaille-tekniikka mutta toisinpäin kuin öljyillä maalatessa. Pysyy teoksen kokonaisilme ehkä valojen ja varjojen suhteen vähän loogisempana kuin ennen. :)
