My second piece for Santa's Workshop, a project where the elves granted over 1000 wishes without receiving anything in return. <3

This is ~KiaRyou's character, Kurara Kanzaki. I read somewhere that she's supposed to be a hitman (hitgirl?) with her bow & arrows (...but I could be really wrong), so I wanted to add a little underlying spark to her schoolgirl innocence.

Her hair was a bucketload of fun!
Tools: Wacom Intuos2 Tablet, Paint Tool SAI, Adobe Photoshop CS3.
Texture: CGtextures.

Nice use of colours. Her facial expression is what makes this picture stand out - she looks just as likely to have planted a whopee cushion in one's chair as to have a plan of performing a palace coup.

I like the canvas texture in this, makes it look like an oil painting :D
my art teacher doesn't like it when I paint in this animeish-like style
