Hitsuzen - Okami inspiration by piku-chan Hitsuzen - Okami inspiration by piku-chan
first entry --> [link]

IMPORTANT NOTE:
The maximum resolution is available for download, but it is VERY VERY BIG. Don't blame me cos I'm following the minimum requirement of the rules. The character shown is an inspiration not a fanart so please do not flame me just yet if you are planning to. THANKS FOR READING!


I seriously have this thing about sending two entries to any contest i enter...wonder why :shrug:
I also tend to like the second entry more than the first though for some reason, the same effects don't come out as nicely. Once again no shading. However, i think i made the lines thinner, so i'm quite happy about that.

About the character...
Her name is Hitsuzen and she is part butterfly (well duh). I actually got part of the idea from Yoko of xxxHolic LOL so maybe partly xxxHolic inspired. Hitsuzen = fate = inevitable circumstance. Butterflies are a symbol of change/metamorphosis, so that's why i didn't make her completely human/humanoid.

About the design...
I have fun again with the fiters, and i used something called "Kaleidoscope" from Medhi (spelling right?) to help me with the wing and bg design. The cloths are very simple (again) cos I really wanted to use patterns. I got that idea of cloth hanging from the sleeve somewhere and if it looks really lame, scold me or something.

Thanks for dropping by! :wave:

This is really trippy as balls. I've never really seen anyone color with mostly patterns instead of solid colors. I really like it.

She's great -- it feels so Japanese woodblock-inspired with that filter. You've got a great imagination for character design! ^_^ Nice work!

I think it's beautiful, I like the use of the purples and greens in it. The filters are nice, I have that filter too and it's fun to use.
