Genkuro by Wolfie-chama Genkuro by Wolfie-chama
Full view pls, and download for full size... >____<

Fan art of the beautiful :iconshanhuang: as Genkuro (a nine-tailed fox/kitsune) from Yoshitsune Senbon Zakura [link] . This painting was really challenging but fun to do. :heart:

Some notes:
- If you've read the synopsis for this Japanese play, you'll know that the little drum Genkuro has on his lap is made of his parents' skins.
- The bridge is called a taiko-bashi (Japanese drum bridge). It's usually built over still waters, but I just wanted a waterfall, so there. XD
- The little red lantern Genkuro is carrying is representative of his kitsune-bi (fox-fire).

Hope you don't mind the colours, I wanted it a bit more fantasy-like, dunno if I over-did it.... @___@

C&C appreciated! ^^

Genkuro by *Wolfie-chama

The suggester says
"I love how elegantly the character is positioned, which was made with an incredibly good sense of perspective, and the warm tones that flow from its silky clothes beautifully contrast the lush, green forest and the cool water, as well as this kind of mysterious glow which gives a special touch to the entire piece. Stunning to say the least!"

There are few things I would call "breath taking." Fewer still of art I would consider a part of that category. But this however... I can't call it anything else. This is fantastic. ^.^ I love it.

This is such a beautiful piece. Your coloring seems softer than some digital art I've seen here; almost like its a dreamy haze. I also like the composition of the image and the color gradation ^^ And I've never heard of the lantern representing the kitsune-bi. Its a very neat little idea. I think my favorite part is the draping of the cloth, how it vanishes or turns ghostly down by the waters.

Yeah, it is a bad habit apparently, I'm always told that my colouring is too soft, must try to use hard edges more. orz
Glad you like the little details I put into this image, thanks for looking!
