Artist Comment

My Axis Powers Hetalia fan art of Honda Kiku (Japan) in honor of the Spring season!

This was really intended as a coloring practice after a long time, but I seemingly failed. My color's quite messy and I got Chinese ink all over the left sleeve of his kimono. I tried to fix it but since it's black, it messed up BAD

I also messed up at the shading DX...I have to practice more!

My hands' became quite shaky lately T^T so I'm sorry if it is not neat *sob*

I followed 'some artists' tutorials...

I intended Kiku's skin to be dark but I failed on fixing the background. I already colored the background when I just realized that orange and red should give a warm feeling despite it is spring by night >.<

Tools: watercolors, white poster colors, acrylics and ink, gel pens, Chinese ink, speed pen, technical pens

This marks my return in painting and coloring AGAIN

    This is seriously so pretty and lovingly done. I love the style, reminds me of CLAMP's good old Clover days. The peaceful, soft colours, the softness and fluffiness of the sakura petals, the feathers, the white sleeves flowing upwards, Japan's EYELASHES - love. It's like one of those angel portraits, with his hair softly curling and his eyes gently closed as he inhales the scent of flowers and spring.. Sure, orange and red and Kiku's skin dark would have made an absolute great change, but I love the duskiness of this piece - so no regrets! :) +favs
