Alicia and Kitsune by fio Alicia and Kitsune by fio
At first, I wanted it to be coloured with plain, smooth colours... But I'm not able to do that just using watercolours -__-... So here are the results!! I'm not really happy with it, and I'll probably colour it again in the future -being honest, I know I won't, but... I took part in a poster contest with this illustration, and I did not win.

Watercolours+markers

Whoa!! I love this! The mech hands are wonderful, her hair is fantastic, cool style! I like her little eyebrows, and the creatures a nice addition. So much detail, looks like this would have taken awhile! I love it, love it, love it! I can't believe you didn't win! This is fantastic! The folds in the clothing, all the patterns, wicked-cool!

actually I would have to say this is a really successful "experiment".

I love the simplicity in character contrasting with colorful background, and the "flat" render works well which makes it a really nice and decorative piece! :)

Actually, now that I see it, I realize that I feel really proud of it. I mean, it didn't come out as I expected, but, well, I admire my own patience with details, lol ;)

¡Muchas gracias!

La verdad es que cuando lo empecé, pensaba en un diseño sencillo para la chica, pero que en conjunto fuese una mezcla entre algo clásico y algo un poco más moderno... Los colores iniciales no iban a ser lo que están ahora en la versión coloreada, pero bueno...

Gracias de nnuevo por pasarte :)

Oye, muy bueno! Que es eso d que n te gusta? ;)
Un dibujo muy detallista (sobretodo el fondo, madre mia!)
Me gusta como has dibujado a la chica y la composicion.
Me lo meto a favoritos!

I was about to talk you in English 'til I realised you were from Argentina, so I suppose you speak Spanish ^^U...

Gracias por el comentario. Los dibujos del kimono me llevaron mucho tiempo (tuve que ponerles el borde dorado con un palillo, porque no era capaz de hacerlo a pincel... Soy torpe -___-), pero la verdad es que me gustó mucho hacer este dibujo... Fue divertido!!!

jaja que tontuela! olvide por completo fijarme que eras española -.-u
pues me imagino tremendo trabajo (palillo= palito de madera o =pluma? o_O?) sehhh el pincel es todo un asunto de pulso milagroso para hacer semejantes lineas... de cualquier manera te llevas el premio, poque el resultado quedo barbaro. (ademas me gustó mucho el estilo, y olvide decirlo, el espacio en blanco quedo bien bien equilibrado)saludosss

Wow those colours are so bold and contrasting! I think it takes a real character to choose colours like those... Anyway I really love how cluttered it looks. So much fun stuff to look at! The texture of her hair is really notable! I really love the details like the mask and the waves on her sleaves!

Thanks for your comment :) I'm glad you like it ^^ I must admit it was quite hard to finish the pattern of the kimono-I guess "hard" is not the word I look for... Let's say that it was just a work of patience... It took me a while, but it was really funny to paint this too... Especially because the original size (A3) is a format that I'm not used to (I normally use A4 sheets), and that made the work more challenging... Thanks again for you comment and dropping by :)

Buenos dias, this be the Captain snooping about the galleries! I gotta say you show some amazing talent. It definitely has an oriental feel to it, yet there's so much creativity to your work that its obvious you have a true gift. Everything from the wathercolors, anatomy, the patterns, evil snake kitty of doom, is simply beautiful. There's something special about you and your work, and I know you'll contribute so much to the world of art. Continue believing in your abilities and you'll go far. Take care and keep on rockin'!

I love this. It looks a lot like something Yoshitaka Amano would do, and is therefore way cool.
