Moonlit Farewell by aruarian-dancer Moonlit Farewell by aruarian-dancer
"Moonlit Farewell" -- "Kaguya Hime 2 - final version" (about 10 hours in Corel Painter).
This is a gift art to very special *liralenli for the gifting meme. Thank you for your support and friendship during this project (and many other "doodles" that I show here).

"Kaguya Hime 2" was a project that went quickly in the beginning and as my vision crystalized in my head, more and more details came forth and seemed to have slowed me towards the end. I feel I've accomplished my original goal of keeping her looking detached and ethereal, and coming up with original costuming ideas that hopefully live up to the vague description of "so beautiful and strange the likes of which nobody has seen before".

I've also played with a style that is new to me in this project, and I feel very good about that. I'm never been a person to stick with what works for me for too long. I like to challenge myself now and then, even just to see if I could come up with something I can be happy looking at.

This morning, I'm looking at her final version and I'm happy to be able to say, "Yes, I like her." The picture is intricate and filled with details throughout the figure, but the overall effect is, to me, not busy or overwhelming, and I don't get the feeling that the work is "trying too hard". But then again, it's my own impression, and I'd be naturally biased for it. :XD:

EDIT (July 10, 2009): Line art of this piece is now available for download here.

Instant gratification! Hehehe. Thank you.

The whole piece took me like 10 hours when I did it back in February 09. I just extracted the line art layer from my Corel Painter file of this finished piece and uploaded it as a deviation for people who might want to color it. ^^

Wow, this is just so beautiful...! I'm not really a fan of this manga style (sorry if that's not the term, I don't know much about it), but this piece is just... BEAUTY. I love the colours and the details are amazing! And her expression... oh... Congratulations! Great job! :heart:
