Mokou Keine 2 by Nyki90 Mokou Keine 2 by Nyki90
First of all thanks :iconnoirioko: for the suggestion to DD and for the DD admins who accepted this.

Actually the inspiration of this picture comes from various sources, and for one from this song
Youtube - [link] /// NicoNico - [link]

Then from the base relationship of these two from the game, Touhou, itself + all the fanbased story that was created about them.

It usually revolves about them living together, living side by side with humans, both share the similar abnormalities, one being half were,half human which is Keine Kamishirasawa ( left), and the other possess the ability of immortality and wields the power of phoenix, Fujiwara no Mokou (right).

There are times that they are depicted as being despised by humans, for they are abnormal, how they are indifferent with us. Otherwise one of them who's currently fond with humans, teach/help the other to get to know about human, and it is possible to live together with them...and so on..
--
And so i felt like coming up with the both of them in their not-so-human form supporting each other, that telling each other,
"It's ok, even if the rest is not there for you , i will be here"

That is why i drew Keine's in her were-form and Mokou revealing of her phoenix-ish power? ( its not supposed to be like that, I just wanted to try something different ). Rather than the usual OH-YEAH-LETS-BURN!!!-FIREEEEEE!!! kind of spirit phoenix, I tried to paint a "life","calm", "care" phoenix thats sync with Mokou's hair and faintly glowing in the background, lighting up the scene.

the background and water reflection was what i felt they were at, when listening to the song. As for the lyrics, I myself dont know exactly what do they mean.

^reply to :iconsonofalion: , which also reminds me to write a desc for this submission.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-02-06
Mokou Keine 2 by ~brownque The suggester said: "I fell in love with this artwork when I first saw it. Both of the characters are friends and brownque draws them just perfectly and sweet together, I can't help but to think stories from this picture! It's like they're making a promise, because Mokou's hair is kind of turned into flower petals looking like she's going to go somewhere but will be back soon~" ( Suggested by noirioko and Featured by alexandrasalas )

My only suggestions would be to make Mokou's hair wave more (it follows too straight a line) and disperse at the edge, and make Keine's horns more visible (they are rather lost against the background). Otherwise it's a great picture.

MokoKeine ;u; I specially love the doujins from Vivit Grey, in my opinion he's the best at depicting their relationship in a sweet way. This is unbelievably pretty, I think you managed to capture the essence of their relationship as well.

Holy crap. This is magnificent! The colorin gand reflection are done in such a way that the night blends in with the water's reflection, which is a very nice touch. The composition of the drawing itself is also something I really like. Seeing Keine and Mokou like this is a very soothing sight, I might add.
