Artist Comment

I finished watching Jigoku Shoujo the other day, and wanted to draw Ai in a more realistic style. Also, I just found a new painting program called SAI, which is kinda like a cross between openCanvas and Painter XD, and wanted to try it out. It's pretty cool, though it's lacking a text tool....

I used a couple of reference scans for the pose and her face. It's all pretty much random, as I didn't really know what I was trying to achieve XD. It ended up with a much older version of Ai, in a cross between a semi-realistic style and the anime style >__<

I couldn't decide on what to put for a background, so did some quick airbrushing for a vague Torii (the gate to a Shinto shrine), some bushes and sakura XD

Took me 2 nights, one to get used to the program and one to actually draw (and redraw DX). Used the default brush tool for everything, 'cause the advanced settings confuse me XD

Wacom Graphire 4, SAI.

    Whoa, you actually used that mysterious Sai program... o.o

    The soft painting looks nice, her pose looks slightly odd and Ai looks way matured, but I like the details on her hair.

    She looks so grown up... Very nice work MapleRose! Her pose is somewhat odd but only when you look closely - at first it doesn't show so much. I like the the style you chose it suits her XD The colours and shading are wonderful!

    Sai? I haven't heard much about that program. It looks like it works pretty good though! The painting looks great!
