Okay, Before I get too far, this is a recolor I made, not a scan! If you don't believe me, the link to the original image is here.

I started this a few weeks ago but ended up having to drop it because of all my school work. But I've had a pretty easy week so I decided to pic this up again.

Anyways, I changed almost all of the colors on Yuuko's kimono because I didn't care for them :sweat: and even added I real kimono pattern over the top layer of her outifit. The background is a conglomeration of kimono fabrics altered in areas to meld together and create a warm feel.

Her hair (and part of the outfit) were drawn in from my imagination to extend the over all size up, so I wouldn't have to make the wall a widescreen one. Also, I used the butterflies to added to the already floating feeling it has and added sparkles around them.... Gotta have sparkles....

.::Ahem::. Anyways, I'm gonna to cry now that this is over because it took me far longer than I originally planned and more layers than I could count... Enjoy!
