Keiko The Kat by OchreJelly Keiko The Kat by OchreJelly
Well, this basically started out as a quick and simple 'let's take a random photo and make it strange!' sort of pic. Let's just say I have no restraint and it kinda went from photomanip to utter complete painting in about an hour.

This is easily the girliest thing I've ever drawn....if I had put in a pink bow I probably would have died a horrible flamey death.

I don't ever ask this, but the thumbnail makes it look awful, please full view it. XP

Done in Painter over the course of a few days. detail snippet is here, original reference is here.

EDIT: I adjusted some levels and some colours here and there, and added some details in the hair I forgot. :P

When you first meet someone, where do you look? To the eyes and the mouth. From that and the persons posture you can determine so very much. Don't we make our first impressions that way.... even before we hear a single word or sound? This is a person I would say is reserved yet friendly. Friendly, but, still secretive to all but her closest friends. Happy with life, tho still willing to accept what may come. Thank you for sharing this with us. She really is beautiful.

I agree with *Michelle84; the "opalescent" (as she put it) coloring is beautimus :)

I also TOTALLY adore the little fang and claws :) What can be cuter than an Asian anthro-kitty? :D

This is one of your most beautiful works, I like the dress, the fur, the hairs, but I don't like the ears and the nails! but I hope its just me and you need not to take it to your heart.

yamikuroi Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2006
What I most like in this is the use of color and lighting. I like how you made it very girly, yet not "shocking-pink-girly-of-doom" :XD: Actually, the pink you used here looks really really good - and that coming from an usual pink-hater! (j/k, of course - all colors have their place in the world :lol:)

Awe, what a cute photo! Wherever did you find such a cute photo of the most darling Japanese girl *__*. Gah, those Japanese are all such hotties tehe. I really like your soft pastely almost opalescent coloring in this. She looks adorable :)
Uberwulf Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2006
Oh my goodness, this is epic greatness.
Puppykit Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2006

fleetfoot Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2006
Lotsa pastel colours there!

I'd say a little thin on the hair, but you've done a wonderful job on the coat. :)

It's a really wonderful picture. So realistic. The only thing is the smile. She looks like she has broccoli stuck in her teeth. Otherwise, it's freaking awesome. Love it.

She is cute and very well painted.
nhathy Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2006
it's cute.
but why is the mouth green on the inside?
C-D Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2006
I really love the choice of colors
very soft
C-D Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2006
after looking at it for a while...I realized that her hair doesn't match her face. Just something I thought I'd point out
I also thing the line below her breasts is a bit too defined
could use a few more folds there, but not a solid line implied line?
merely a suggestion :)

keep up the great work
Feriberri Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha, definetly pink and definetly girly.
This goes against my code, but I'm faving it. >.> <.<
Mostly because your attention to detail and your use of toning and textures is amazing.
Not to mention her smile, it's so adorable =3
kyla79 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2006
very nice soft tones! I like it! :D
