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! :)

Thanks for commenting!

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!
Por cierto, has visto algun art book d Yoshitaka Amano? Su estilo me recuerda un poco al q has usado en este dibujo

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!!!
