Chrysanthemum Doll by shirogiku Chrysanthemum Doll by shirogiku
The work on this piece took me forever. Large paper sizes like A3 and 0.05 ink pens don't pay off when it comes to speed. (- w -)v
But I am quite satisfied with the result.(^ ^)

"Kikuningyou" (= chrysanthemum doll) is a Japanese term used for extremely pretty, yet stupid girls and women.
Since we're dealing with a real doll here, it may not be quite fitting, but I recently stumbled over this term in a dictionary and simply loved it. :)

And now that I have erased the urge to finish it, I'm gonna do something for university...-__-'''

THIS IS AMAZING O,O Seriously, you have my up most utter respect for this!
I don't think I could EVER do something like this!
The details are amazing! And I almost died a little when I read about the paper being A3.... and the pen only 0.05!!! OH MY GOOOD O.O I am just saying!
It is truly beautiful! VERY admireable :)

Also for actually reading the description!XD Yup, that one took me several days due to its size. I'm already used to the thin pen, though.^^ Just applicating it to bigger sizes. (x__X) ;D
I'm happy the effort payed off, many people told and showed me that they really liked it~~~
You really motivated me just now.\(^0^)/

The shading on this is truly lovely! And I think the title fits very well, as she does look pretty but slightly stupid.

Die Details, die Details... der Wahnsinn. Und dem Idolstatus kann ich nur zustimmen. ( Darf ich mir 'ne Scheibe abschneiden von deiner Ausdauer? ^^)

This is an great example of skill and patience =D The amount of details and patterns you managed to do with crosshatching is impressive...and that flatness on her face is interesting, quite a contrast to the whole picture...was this intentional? xD

And I loved the leaves on left getting out of the drawing border, it's a nice touch!
Congrats for it! :w00t: :hug:

Thank you so much!!!! \(> <)/
I kinda like to add more and more details to a picture as I draw. Makes it more interesting, even to myself.^^
The flatness of her face...You got me there.xD It was intended, since I wanted to give her face a porcelaine like look.She's a doll after all.^^
But the other reason is that I simply don't like shading the face. It always turns out to look quite akward. D:

Thank you! A spontanious idea I had~ I wanted to reduce the density of the picture and connect it a little more to the passepartout.^^

Thank you for taking the time to comment! :heart:

very pretty. I love traditional work, especially inks, being my personal favourite medium. I'm not so fond of the anime face; I'm not sure that it really adds anything to the piece.
