Dalena Akamatsu by cowbunny91 Dalena Akamatsu by cowbunny91
Hey, y'all! It's been awhile, hasn't it?

This is my trade half for the talented ~ChiffonSigh of her character Dalena Akamatsu.

I'm really proud of this picture for two reasons: One, it's something of a milestone. Anyone's who's read my journal (and noticed the lack of updates in, what, a few months now?) knows I've been in a funk. Well, I'm out of it now, and this can attest to that! And two, it's my first completely-drawn-by-me background! I'm really proud of the ripples around her leg and against the sand mound ... island ... thing? she's sitting on.

I know her eye isn't colored in ... ~ChiffonSigh didn't specify what eye color she had in her reference, so I sent her a note asking. When she replies, I'll fill it in for her. :)

EDIT: Colored her eye. :)

Hope you like it, girl! :glomp: :heart:

Dalena Akamatsu ~ChiffonSigh

Cool, very nicely done.

Is she a pearl diver or an erstwhile pirate?

Welcome back, Cowbunny!!

This piece has a kind of "vintage postcard" feel to it.

Love all the detail with the shadows, especially on her left arm, and the tan lines on her back. Excellent picture, as always.

Its good to see you in such better spirits these days, Allison. What can I say on the picture but Fan-fooking- tastic!! xD
The colorings, the backround, and even the little things(do I see a minor tan line on her back?).
I told you, you would find a great way to do this.
Nice work. :3
