When I see this piece. All that goes through my head is, How is that possible?
When I saw the thumbnail of this, I thought it was done digitally, when in actual fact, it's Traditional media!
I adore the big contrast between the slightly coloured blacks and the bright, happy colours, it gives it a sort of evil-ish yet innocent charm.
And I love the really warm and vibrant Red/Pink theme.
This is so brilliant and intoxicating to me because any one who has tried something similar to this knows how extremely difficult it truly is e.g. Stop the pencil or paint bleeding or keeping everything precise & even.
I can't really come up with a logical "suggestion to improve" because to me this is already perfect. Uhh, perhaps try a tiny bit of definition on the closest arm? But that kinda gives a fluid/light feeling to me.
This is fantabulous.
What do you think?

By now I'm sure we've all seen a pretty girl in a kimono/yukata, but I must say her eyes are very striking to me. They have a depth, but it's soft and charming, almost pulling you in.
The design isn't anything too original, but the pattern of her sash gives it almost a tribal feel, the added petals compliment the lace trim, and the bright red is a nice touch to offset the dark pattern.

Her right arm however bothers me. I can see where you were going with it, but the arch of it looks almost rubbery in a way, perhaps because her hand is angled strangely, and very thin. Under your pinky, it should be rounder to show the muscle underneath, but I see no definition of that here.

Overall, I love the pose and the bold colors you chose. Keep it up!

I love the soft lineart, the sweet facial expression, and the elegant details on this piece. The shading and color pallete isnt bad eiather. You've really captured the modest yet entrancing nature of kimonos in every single part of this work from the windswept movement of the hair to the delecate rose fastened to hold her locks in place. I think I found my new favorite piece of art. Flawless work, dear.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

sorry

;w; I have missed seeing your art. Considering I first came across you via gaiaonline (with Kimmi’s help), and since then I believe your art has improved quite a lot. As specified by *RaynexThunder in her Critique, I too thought it was done digitally but upon clicking the piece and viewing your tumblr, I saw that it was done traditionally.

^w^ You have a way of doing amazing work with pencils and traditional mediums. I very much love the colour scheme here and the patterns on the outfit look nicely done. Overall I like the whole composition and hope to see more art <3
