Kasane no Irome - Matsuri

Took me a while, but I finished it.

Sketched this out a while ago and decided to color it recently, just to alternate between the stuff I draw. So, another drawing of Renee Santz from Carmen Sandiego's Great Chase Through Time, once again Heian-era Japan. Except this time, she's wearing a festival palette and is joined by the criminal she had to capture, Medeva (also in a festival palette).

I chose celebration/festival palettes since last time I did season-specific palettes (only for Renee), and I also wanted to do year-round palettes for their kasane no irome. The palettes used here are koubai no nioi for Renee, and matsu gasane for Medeva. (though I kinda slightly took a little creative liberty with the latter and added her energy blast colors for the bold crests on the uwagi layer, and a fox mask you'd find at a summer festival.

Renee's colors were chosen to make her look like she's a fairy-tale princess, while Medeva's colors are meant to give her a "Disney Villain" feel. Though looking at her now, her straightened hair makes her look like a female version of Orochimaru (guess what I've been watching!). *Orochimaru theme intensifies*

I have an alternate version where you can see the colors better without the over-laid texture. And here's the previous piece with Renee if anyone wanted to see.

So, hope you like it, and stay tuned, 'cause you're watching Stephanie's Channel.

I feel like these kinds of drawings, the ones where you're showing off the beauty of clothing from other cultures and eras, is truly where your work shines the most! there's always so much attention to detail with your understanding of the outfits and what they represent, and that's so intriguing to me :'00


Renee looks beautiful in pink, by the way! ;u;

Thank you so much! I'm really glad you appreciate the effort put into this work.


I admit, I've always had a fascination with international cultures and their traditional costumes (and history too). I'm glad that you see it as one of my strengths when it comes to art.


And I'm so happy you like Renee's outfit. I tried different arrangements before settling on that one for her; you can see a whole list of <i>kasane no irome</i> palettes here (click "other combinations to see the list)

What I find fascinating is the fact that those color combinations in the link you sent definitely wouldn't be my ideal color palette options (lots of clashing colors by our Western standards!), but seeing them used with the clothing and patterns make it feel more uniform and deliberate :00


you're so very welcome, by the way! as always, keep up the good work~! <3

What do you mean by that? It sounds kind of irrelevant to the work presented here.
