Umbrella Rain by Kyendo Umbrella Rain by Kyendo
Final version. Sure took me long enough. I don't think I've ever worked on something this big. So okay, the fact that Mei (the little girl) fades into the background is bad illustration. And so is the handle of the umbrella who may or may not throw the whole composition.

But the comissioner is happy with it. SO I'M DONE! Learning lessons and moving on. :D

Tools: Graphite on paper, Photoshop CS3.

Comissioned by *maichan808, who just happens to be the most amazing comissioner ever to walk the Earth (no, this is not hyperbolic at all).

This is just lovely! I like the way you did the umbrellas, and Satsuki's sandal flying off to the side.

Almost looks like you hand-painted some of it. I love this. The red umbrellas are my favorite.

Well, I painted it with my hands, so I guess all of it, not just some, is hand-painted. :P Photoshop was just my tool of choice. Thank you!

I found Mei right off! Of course, it might help that my husband always sees me in her, and vice versa ... ;)

Mei is me as a little girl, he thinks, and when I'm an old broad, he sees me as the pirate queen from Castle in the Sky. :ahoy:

Arrrr!
