An image that had been commissioned of me by a fellow user on DA. I had so much fun making this piece (an added bonus being this has got to be my fave Inuyasha pairing - squee!) - except for those stripes on Sesshoumaru's pants. XP Those were the only real pain in the but for me, as tey should be more uniform than they are in this piece.

Gotta see what I can do about making a brush or stamp of vertical lines for future works. XP

    Very nice work, I am sure the person that commissioned this is very happy. Smile
    I love the patterns on the clothing, and the soft way in which you colored this. I would have gone with a little more contrast in the hair, but that does not take away from this lovely piece. Beautiful background, thanks for sharing.

      Thank you very much for the compliments and suggestions. Smile

      And yes, the one who commissioned it loved it. Smile

    Wow! Its all in the details. The clothing is above and beyond.

      Squee! Thank you! Smile

      Now if only I could get indoor scenarios to look half as good. Wink

    This is beautiful. I also saw this piece on DA and I totally agree with you about Kagura not wearing the white hood - its simply not something Sesshomaru would demand of her at all.

    I also love the attention to detail on her kimono.

    I HATE this couple, but the drawing itself was so well made that I have to make a coment. Contragulations, amazing fanart! Big Smile

      Aww - why do you hate this pairing? Sad

      But thank you for the compliments, regardless. Smile

    Not my favorite pairing but Sesshoumaru looks amazing anyways!

    Wow, this is beautiful! I love SessKagura as well. I'm sorry the pants gave you so much trouble, but it looks like it was worth it! Wink

    The detail in this is so beautiful! I love the colors, and you kept Sesshoumaru in character (only he would have that expression on his face when getting married!). Not a Sesshoumaru/Kagura fan, but I love this piece.

      I think this one is my most favorite. Well done as usual!
