11 :: 鬼龍院 皐月 (complete)

Took me quite awhile to update this painting (sorry!!) After coming back from Bangkok I had multiple things going on, and a friend of mine got me into watching Idolm@ster so I’ve been doing some marathons for it haha! Finally had time to finish up Satsuki’s painting (though the finishing seems tad rush)

Since I got quite a few comments saying the eyes looking at the viewer seems better, I actually did two versions for it. And I managed to fix it without the eyes looking awkward I think? Hair detailing came next! One of my favorite things to do while painting haha.

After the hair, added the ‘horns’ back in haha. Possibly the fastest part I got done since it’s so small.

Here’s the closeup of her face ;;

On with Junketsu! I’m not good with the armor types really so sorry for the messy style and whatnot.

  1. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to paint armor. If you were to ask me, I think it would have been better if it was more white, but it’s really not all too bad!

    I really like how you captured her gaze in this composition. I really have no other words because I’m just really liking how she looks. I’m also surprised how you were able “fix” her glance towards the audience. It looks great. They both look great. I’m glad that you did both.

    Kudos! Thanks for sharing the process!

    1. Yeah I figured I should have painted more white on the armor… I do plan on fixing it a little more. Cause I noticed a small chip on her chin so I’m gonna fill it back in hahaha.
      It took about an hour or so to “fix” it but I’m glad it turned out pretty well <3

  2. The hair was pretty simple hahaha! I just managed to get to a style where it’s fast and looks pretty good in paintings.
    It makes me want to paint more now *^*
