Picture I did for a japanese convention.
Polymanga 2014. 
The theme this year is "By the lake" I wanted to do a japanese style illustration with a water spirit form
the lake and a young girl (who is kinda looking like me :p) offering him sushi. Because sushi. Nom. I will love to share my sushi with a dragon.

Thanks a lot !

Comments, favs are appreciated and always welcome !

Absolutely beautiful!!
There's so much detail in the water spirit! Looks just like something you'd see in a picture book!

I love the sumi-e style, the cherry blossom tree and the water spirit. I am a big fan of the art style of Okami, the computer game based on Japanese culture and art, and this image reminds me of it!

This is so special, the way a traditional image is enhanced with abstract shapes. The whole is so balanced and beautiful. Thank you for creating this!

This is absolutely beautiful! I love it! <3! It reminds me a lot of a stained glass window because of the thick lines. I really enjoy the look of it! ^-^ Great job!
