Sakura Hime by Kenneos Sakura Hime by Kenneos
I had done this draw for a event contest^^ I had been keeping too much time in secret but now i can show it^^

The main theme was the clasical japanese Tale: "The grateful crane". It's one of my favorite japanese tales so i decide draw the main character of the draw based on the lovely crane of the tail.

I thougt that she must have black long hair, withe feathers on the hair and a withe kimono with cents of sakura flowers^^ She must be beutifull and lovely I thought and i start to draw her.

The contest was about a manga and anime event here in Spain, so i draw her reading an old manga where characters come to live form it.

This manag characters had been drawed trying to give a general idea about all the kind of themes that you can find in a manga: Kendo, school girls, fairy and magic tails, and tails about ordinary and extraordinary live.

Also for the back ground i tryed to make something like Mucha's background from the art nouveau but with sakura floyers. Thats is because i want to mix the occidental culture with the japanise culture.

And more or less this is the explain of this draw.

Just hope you like it!

------------------------------------------------------

Esta Ilustración corresponde al ultimo concurso al que me he presentado. Llevaba mucho tiempo escondiéndolo, pero ahora mismo ya puedo enseñarlo.

Esta basado en uno de mis cuentos Japoneses favoritos: "La grulla agradecida".

La verdad es que la explicación en ingles me ha quedado bastante casposa ya que no se exactamente como decir lo que realmente quiero y bueno... No quiero recurrir a los traductores del infierno....

La idea era mezclar el mundo occidental con el Japones, es por eso por lo que a pesar del aspecto del dibujo he querido meterle un pequeño toque europeo con el fondo. Se trata de una imitación de Mucha, un ilustrador del "art nouveu" aderezado con un pequeño toque japones, las flores del cerezo en vez de los clasicos lirios y camelias que el usaba para sus carteles.

Respecto al personaje principal, quería que diera el aspecto de una hermosa "princesa grulla", por eso sus largos cabellos negros, las plumas que adornan su pelo, su inmaculada piel blanca y un hermoso kimono blanco con cientos dde delicadas flores del cerezo destacan sobre el resto de la imagen centrando toda la atención en sus ojos rosados que miran timidamente a los nuestors al ser sorprendida leyendo un manga.

Este manga es bastante especial, pues no es un maga ordinario, de el, sus personajes vuelven a la vida y salen de sus aletargadas paginas que son leídas con cariño por la princesita.

También he querido representar con los personajes la temática mas amable y tradicional del manga: el kendo, las historias del día a día, la fantasía, y las escenas que de normales pueden pasar a extraordinarias.

No se, ya solo me queda esperar que os guste, pues en este trabajo he invertido muchas horas de esfuerzo y aprendizaje^^

This is so amazing! The only flaw I can see is in your folds. With folds, patterns get interrupted. All the flowers on the bottom stay almost the same, instead of altering like they should be.

Anyways, this is amazing! :iconiloveyouplz:
