This is a work in progress. I just need to outline a few of the flowers on her kimono and then color it all in. I have an idea of the colors of everything, but if anyone has any suggestions Id love to hear them.

Ah your such a softy, I hope your happy and you found him again. I know the feelings sometimes as I am single and sometimes miss holding someone very much. About that time I grab all 3 of my Dogs and give them hugs.
Wonderful wonderful work and sketching hun. I worked in 2D for many years.

I fav'd this but didn't comment so let me comment now...I think I said somewhere that you have a good sense for composing your space, and this is another example. It really does feel like the drawing was made for its space. (See november22's work: He is masterful at filling high rectangular spaces. I can recommend others too...) But equally delicate is the flow of the torso and how the gown continues her lines, and the beautiful way you continue the piece's florals on her shoulders, not to mention that fire-like hair, which is beautiful. All of these show your sensitivity to organic form. I assume that's saki she's drinking, as there's an Oriental feel here (and the letters have some Oriental shapes to them, imitating the etched lines of the calligraphy-brush). For my part? I don't know if you even need all the wonderful rocks on the bottom—just my opinion, but they're fine enough to be a separate piece, and the woman & ground & sky & leaves are complete in themselves...But it does add another dimension, as you etched the stones very expressively. I agree with blooknok that subtle colors would be nice; but I'd imagine that the minute you start coloring, your inner eye will guide you. (You can always make b&w prints and try-out some choices)...Bottom line, there's magic & intimacy this, and genuine ease of expression.
