Tsuki no Yumi
It is an illustration I had in mind for ages. Because I love Lune and I love Japan and both subjetcs would perfectly match. Isn't she cute in this kimono ?
First of all, sorry for the clichés, the cherry blossom, the lamps etc but I couldn't help...
Presently, Lune is in Yamato, a far East empire of the Shredded Lands, a country she really loves for its culture and refinment... and most of all, the peace she found there.
For her hairdo, I tried a mix between oiran's and maiko's, indeed, she decided to become one of those "ladies of arts", but beware, she is still holding some weapons. I tried to create a big contrast between the character and the background, playing with the colors scheme in order to focus on Lune; another trick was to draw her in a different scale and perspective. It may be a bit shocking at first sight but it was the effect I wanted to get.
Just a little detail: the embroideries are silver, surronded by a redish glow: I wanted to get the same color scheme as her eyes.
This drawing is very very very important for me and I'm pretty happy how it turned out :love:
