A prequel to Renamon's Candid Shower picture I did in like... 2009? She's just getting into the water here.
Holy crap, I submitted new artwork. This has not been done since late August of last year. A variety of reasons could explain this, but I won't go into detail now. This picture in particular has been in the lineart stage for a couple of weeks, but I finally went back and shaded it.
As I continued working on this picture, I started having more and more fun. I especially like how the bloom turned out for the small areas where the sky is exposed. It took a few redoes before I was happy with how her colors turned out. Using a LED-backlit laptop screen which has cooler tones in combination with Paint Tool SAI's different style of color selection continues to make it more difficult for me to extract the colors I want.
