Nomconcept 8D by kitten-chan Nomconcept 8D by kitten-chan
So this is a work in progress an unfortunately this is as far as she's gonna get because Sai crashed and >____> well you all know how bad I am for saving things....

For an Irish convention; Nom-con. I'm doing artwork for it soooo yes, this is what I was working on ON the train when I lost my pen XD

She is a Koi fish. We're kind of going with an animal theme. Seeing as it's an anime convention the Koi is to rep. Japan and seeing as Foxes are one of Irelands native animals, a lil fox for Ireland.

Aww that's when you lost it? D: That SUCKS. And it looks so well alreadyyy. I absolutely adore her hairr. It's so flowy-like. And reminded me of Tangled hahaa. [Not that I've seen the movie yet -sigh-]
Love love the blue-green shading! To me it makes it seem more like she's in water and all that good stuff haha~ Of course your shading's always awesomeness XD
Andd. are those textures you used for the dress? Or did you draw all that out :O
OOH FISHSCALE EYESHADOW STUFF. SPARKLY.

It first I thought of a cat to a relative of mine, who has those colours, but then I looked closer and her hair looks like a fish tail. It looks really cool! :heart:

This is so beautiful, and your shading&coloring is phenomenal! ♥ I lovelovelove the hair~ The eyes and the texture of the dress is amazing just as well!
((The hair reminded me of a Calico cat's fur at first, only because I have one in my house xD It looked soft like their fur lol))
I'm in love with the minimal green reflections on the hair from the dress <33 It's a wonderful touch! Absolutely wonderful. It's really unfortunate that you can't finish this;; I''d loooove to see it finished.

Awww. ;; Yeah Calicos are really beautiful <333 They're so sofftt, but she hates it when I rub my face on her. ):
I should probably try that shading technique sometime (x It looks really nice~
LOL SAVE!!! I just have a habit of clicking ctrl+s like every 10 minutes because Windows7 likes to blue screen.. >___> a LOT....

Yes, my icon's shaman king. I lovee Shaman King <3 It's a match:
