Another InuKag wedding-centric piece that turned into a bit of a personal exercise in... well... everything.

I wanted to play with clothing folds since it's something I'm always working on, and I also wanted to see how well I could pull off pattern on fabric since I hadn't purposely tried to do it since college. It also turned into an exercise in lighting and color, and overall I'm very happy with the result. I was originally going to do a little more detailing in the background, but the rendering on the clothing turned out so beautiful that I didn't want to detract from it.

    I really like this piece, the shading gives it a romantic atmosphere.

    The kimono is very nice as well, I absolutely envy your ability to come up with designs for the kimono. XD Good work on this! Smile

    Aw wow. *_* That's beautiful. The atmosphere is so engrossing, and they really look like they're touching (sometimes that's hard to do. O.o And they end up looking... well, like they're not touching XD).


    Very nice. Thanks so much for sharing.
