Jigoku Shoujo- Above the water by Aquarina12 Jigoku Shoujo- Above the water by Aquarina12
Jigoku Shoujo donned in Kusuriuri (where?) inspired outfit. The colours can be really confusing and chaotic. XD

Done in mostly Pentel watercolours on A4 300gsm paper.
I want to try something strange this time (e.g colouring her hair purple, strange flow of hair). Took me months to finish this due to coursework.
Jigoku Shoujo is actually in the anime series of,well,Jigoku Shoujo.

[Edit]: I may plan to darken the black colour of the ribbon and the bright colours of the butterflies.The stupid printer is always not capturing the details very well.

Thank you very much for the compliment! Sometimes, I do find it pretty difficult to balance and manage the watercolours.XD

The most difficult part is trying to prevent your colors from getting muddy. You seem to be having no problem with that.

You're very lucky then, to have someone looking over your shoulder and giving you directions. Self thought artists have to learn this the hard way ^^;
