I love how she could be a monster out of Japanese folklore.

do you mean "coy mermaid"? :D


tell me, how do you get good at drawing such nice backgrounds?

I think she means "koi" - koi is a type of fish.

but she does look a bit shy ...

anyway, "koi" is japanese, and the title is in english.

Isn't koi also the English name for the fish?


And for the background the answer is a bit boring but lots of practice. I've always loved doing rough landscape sketches. It's something I don't do as often anymore

What a gorgeous style! Her gaze is so intense~ The dreary gray sky really makes the greens especially vibrant~!
