This is an older piece. Done in 2002. Photoshop 6 and a mouse.
I sold prints of this at AX02 as well.
I'm not as familar with this anime as others, but I have seen a fair amount of it. This is one of my favorite of her outfits. I improvised and added a lot more ribbons.
The background was inspired by several CLAMP art book images I seen.
I remember that piece took a really long time to complete. It also sat around in the 'sketch' stage for quite a while, too.
I like that its a complete pic. I rarely do those anymore. =\
