Copypasta, yum!

(O_O It's done! It's finally, finally, FINALLY done! Thank the maker for that >_<
I love saiunkoku, and I adore Kouyuu, but I am so happy to be finished at last! XD

So, yes, this is for fye-lover's awesome moar plz request on AP of a wall of Ri Kouyuu from Saiunkoku. I'm not sure if it's what she was looking for, especially since it turned out a lot...well..girlier, than I'd planned. :\

OK, well Kouyuu was vectored and painted from THIS scan. Well, not exactly, it would have been if I'd been smart enough to find it before I went off a smaller scan I already had ~_~

Sadly he was half painted by tablet, and half by mouse, owing to the premature death of my dearly beloved tablet. T_T Which is also why the style of the flowers just doesn't match the main figure, since I do not have the patience to do that much painting with a mouse -_-'

I'd love to say i painted the background with the bridge, but it is actually a heavily filtered scan from an akihiro yamada pic. The birds are both from the original scan, with some minor extensions and tweaking.

1280x1024 - http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c206/Rakka_15/Kouyuu_1280.jpg

And finally - Happy Birthday to me! :P

EDIT - ok 1600 version should work now... Thanks for pointing that out, MapleRose ^_^

    Yay it's done! And it looks awesome! (In typical Piccolobear fashion.) He does look very girly it is true, but we don't get to see him like this in the series so much so it's a nice change. And I truly <3 the branch and flowers even if they aren't quite the same style. The addition of the little birdies (who are probably the most perfect/delicate thing in the wall) to the branches was an excellent final touch. This will be on my desktop for awhile. XD

    your tablet died?! ;__; (what brand was it?)

    anyway, nice painting, I esp like the soft colours in the background, and how you did the shading of the branch on his clothes. did you use a reference for the background/branches? the birds are really cute, and a nice addition. The flowers look fine, although in the cluster in the upper right corner, the colour of the outlines are barely visible against that purple >__<

    (btw, photobucket resized the 1600x1200 version)

    and happy birthday to you ^^

    Ohhh.. I love this one! The painting look great, I love the soft color you used.. and it's Kouyuu! >.<

    the different elements, by trying to be so sharp and clean, end up not blending in together. But the colours and composition are really really my style of liking :)
