Fanart of Violet Evergarden. The anime is so pretty :D Tried a different style here, keeping it a bit more anime.

Painted this from start to finish at 
twitch.tv/raikoart - if you're interested in watching me stream in the future, please do consider following :D (Big Grin) the recorded streams are also available for a week or so, I believe.

I hope you like it!

As I watched anime I tried to find what I consider to be perfect and the best. I figured I would never find such a thing but then found it
to my delight in Violet Evergarden. I knew after a few minutes of the first episode that it was indeed the pinnacle of anime I sought.

I think it's fair to say that the quality and beauty of the show is clearly echoed in this piece.

I LOVED this anime! My hubby who is also an anime lover did not. Not enough 'fighting' but me who is almost never moved by things cried my eyes out. Such a beautiful story. Great picture of her. You captured her demeanor perfectly.

Anyone else keep seeing this anime and thinking it's either Saber, Ruler, Saber or Saber from the fate series? (and yes there are 3 DIFFERENT sabers that look identical, maybe 4 idk)

Same as the red hair trend. Yona of the Dawn, Snow White with the Red Hair (Shirayuki) and one other all have this intense red hair and are the main heroine. I think they go thorugh 'phases" in anime lol. For awhile they were all "Kagome' style, typical Japanese girl coloring, school girl outfit etc.
