Utsukushii. by alexandriel Utsukushii. by alexandriel
Full view DEFINITELY recommended, the small view looks hideous @__@;;;

This is just a quick practise picture, and I know there are lots and lots of mistakes, especially the hands look absolutely horrible. >__<

I used reference for this pic, in case you wondered.
The kimono fabrics are from [link]

Time taken: 5-6 hours (!)

[EDIT]: I changed the fabrics and cleaned up the image quite a bit. It should look much, much better now.

your realism is fantastic! you should do more! :D
im not a huge fan of any anime/manga style... mostly because its so completely overdone that its become a major teen fad...
however, you are extremely professional about it and have great talent! its good its just not me. i do encourage you to keep with your style and keep going! you are incredible. im very impressed also because you arent the typical thinks-shes-a-fox-annoying anime fan. you are not one of the people who only think they are an artist because they can sort of make it look similar to other artists. you have your own style even within the manga style...and you try other styles. your realistic cartoons like this one are my favorite, because of my bias, but i really do enjoy seeing someone serious...so thank you :)
