     This is Izayoi from the anime series Inuyasha. She was Inuyasha's human mother, and also a princess of some clan. I have always wanted to draw a beautiful picture of her, but never had much inspiration. Yes, I realize that that's not the kimono and uchikake you usually see her wearing. In fact, thats a Chinese dress. (Don't judge me!) :) I just wanted to draw her wearing something else, I mean, who would want to wear the same exact dress your entire life?

     In this drawing, I depicted her as a very young princess. Here she is about 18 or 19 years old, around the age (I imagine) that she met InuTaisho. If you think otherwise, by means of what age she met him, that's your opinion. In my mind, women were wed or bore children when they were very young (In her given era). I wouldn't think Izayoi to be like in her late twenties or early thirties when she gave birth to Inuyasha.

    Beutiful. I love the colors you chose to use. They are very elegant, and more unique than any I remember seeing.
