Chihaya of Mizusawa makes a powerful move against Rion from Fujisaki High School using her speed and her hearing skills.
This piece took me a while to do it because of the posing issues and I had to redo it over and over again. But fortunately I felt satisfied with a correct pose and I accelerate the coloring process and after some pitfalls and pose issues I finally finished this illustration.
I feel very happy about it because when you take a look back to all the process, all the problems you been through and all the solutions that you found to solve it like a puzzle. You see the art done you feel the joy of achieving another challenge to embrace the next one.
I love the anime Chihayafuru and now that I finished this illustration I love a little more the Karuta, that's why I started again to learn basic japanese hiragana and katakana to read it and write it, to get a japanese course in the future just for the pleasure of learn the language and learn and play for fun the Karuta.
And I'm just getting started.
Stay tuned for more illustrations and upcoming surprises for everyone.
Don't forget all commissions are OPEN ask me for rates by sending me a PM and also the art trades are OPEN only for 3 slots per month. I'll be glad.
