.TouHou. Reimu by fredericayang .TouHou. Reimu by fredericayang
For me Reimu connects the human world and the soul of a deceased person, the butterflies are like the souls surrounding her. Red spider lily metaphors the connections.

Were you selling at Otakuthon? I saw huge screened tapestries of your work and I'm pretty sure your art was stolen.

Oh my gosh the colours are amazing. Not only by the way you place them, but the complex of themselves. This is amazing and epic, 10/10!

Gorgeous, so much detail and colour, but still not messy. Really awesome job! If there's one thing to critique (there is not one but still ;P) I'd say mayby a little bit more depth, cause the background looks like its pretty close which makes the image a bit more crowded. But that's nagging on the details, it's actually beautifull :love:

Non-Premium Account Critique Time!

What a great piece you have here. It's very lovely, and has a lot going on in it. The colors and shading are great. It's obvious that a lot of work has been put into it.

What you should really be proud of it Reimu. She is superb in every way. She's anatomically correct, her hands were done beautifully, and the colors and shading really bring her to life.

What I notice that is a bit wrong is the theme or content. It's obvious that you are trying to communicate something, but it isn't obvious what it is. The background could have been a bit more different, to keep the flower/butterfly theme.

Overall, lovely piece. You should be very proud.

Most of time I use SAI to do my line works(it's very handy) and coloring. Then photoshop to do the special effects. However I used PS only when I was starting. It doesn't really matter what you use but you just need time to practice and get use to the program. There are some other great drawing program, such as PAINTER.
