:new: Process video added! Watch here.

The commissioner requested himself and Krul Tepes from Owari no Seraph on a date in Tokyo. He was very flexible and open to ideas for the setting, so I sketched a few of my ideas based on his, and he decided on the Asakusa Kannon Temple (Sensouji), home to the famous Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate) and Nakamise shopping street* that leads up to the temple.

He is armed with money and is ready to buy whatever she wants. *v*

This was my first commission involving such a level of detail! You guys know I want to improve my backgrounds, so this was a welcome challenge. It took longer than I had expected, but I think I might have improved a little ;v; I still need to figure out how to paint cherry blossoms and flowers well...

OH. Let me just say that it is extremely hard to find photos of this particular spot!!! I spent hours just digging through Google images. That's the only location I could tell that had cherry blossom trees, yet there were no photos with a clear shot of their location; all the focus was on the gate. ;v; (Also there are usually tons of people in the photos, so they cover up all the background details I needed reference for! Artist problems...)

But overall, I enjoyed it! Thanks so much for commissioning me again!!  Chiyo Excited Icon 

*I half made up the shop names to avoid issues, but you can see the actual names in the video (or just do a Google search).

Question: I added a watermark-style signature to this one... What do you guys think? I always sign my art in an inconspicuous place with my penname initials "YS", but sometimes I want to use my full signature...

<3 <3 <3 Cannot thank you enough! ALSO I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE PICTURES OF ASAKUSA BEING HARD TO GET.  To be fair there are ALWAYS 99999999999999 people there T_T

Also about the watermark - at least for me I'm pretty honored to have the artist's initials / full name somewhere in the work! It's like an autograph :D
