Well I haven't uploaded in a while ; u ; Hope everyone is okay!

Guqin Sona from League of Legends for ~DarkElpizo Happy Birthday Roland-sannn

I used real ink and a dip pen this time instead of my usual black drawing pens to outline her, the paints stood out more with it being brown! Was happy with that : >

Credit to League of Legends.

Tools:
Winsor and Newton ink
Dip pen (mapping)
Artists' Water Colour paints
WHsmith water colour paints
Winsor and Newton Cotman water colour paints
Caran D'ache water colour pencils
The Langton A4 Rough Paper

It's wonderful, as always. Vibrant and colorful, intricate and delicate.

How long does a piece like this take, from start to finish?

Thank you so much KirbyLink-san for your kind words, you're always giving me such nice comments,I really must get on with your thank you gift.

If I have free time for a while, not long at all. This took a day to draw, a few hours to outline and a day to paint. That's not very long for me compared to others, but I always take long so this was short XD.

The flow of the entire drawing is really really natural. The circle really guides my eye. It feels extremely natural looking from the girl, following the circle, and ending up at the crane. Very well done.
