Commission for :iconnixana: of her lovely character from Ragnarok Online, a soul linker named Kanami.

Matsuri are native Japanese festivals of sacred Shinto origin. Originally they related to the cultivation of rice and a local community's physical and spiritual well-being. Through feast and celebration, matsuri symbolize the community's unity with itself and with its Shinto gods ("kami.")

This is beautiful :D I like how Kanami's clothing flows, and the pose and perspective you've used to show it makes it look all the more awesome.

I can't think of anything else to say, except that I like this piece a lot :D Consider it favourited :+fav:

I remember hearing about the festival in an anime but never looked it up. Of course like every anime they twisted the original to meet their needs.
