Omyword... I just...
This particular piece harmonizes the best of "both" your styles (The serious, detailed art-style outside ShoDai against the Asian-based flowing style as seen in ShoDai) to create an amazing display of physical beauty & the dance of forms, not to mention a nice depiction of a scene from Asian mythology. Everything here is pure spellbinding, be that the sensuous yet respectively tasteful dance, the weighted yet elegant movement of kimono & its intertangling cloud motifs within folds & layers. But the best part is esp. in Ame-no-Uzume's healthy curves. I'm a big fan of wholesome body physiques so seeing your art-style work that perfectly is nothing short of Stellar.
Another impressive aspect here is your traditional Copic Colourwork, now just as solid & deep as your digital counterpart (i.e. ). The various shades of deep blue gives a calm feeling contrasting yet still supplementary of the vibrant goddess. Natural lighting under moonlight is perfect in giving a soft yet luminous sheen to skin-tone, which I always found much more arresting than highlights from direct "day"light.
Maybe I'm sounding biased here, but you totally outdid yourself here with this specific piece, as it contains everything to like within a concrete art quality. I can only imagine your ShoDai OCs in this form of "art-style". Gaaaaaahhhhhhh Just splendid~
Really... I used to like slender forms but my appreciation for healthier tendencies started after high school. Also then I had re-appreciation of Classical sculpture which helped me hone my art way more than I expected. Anyways such a delight seeing curves within Asian style~
I can never do watercolour or marker but from what I slightly understand(?), those are tricky to re-work or fix so it's mostly defined at first stroke. And lighting is hard to draw traditionally but still seeing the effort in your art as least as a soft surface highlight make it all the more worth it no matter how inaccurate.
I think you should divide to do some ShoDai pics in its main style & some in realist-nuanced styles such as this. It would make for rich interpretations under various lenses of the same universe & characters.
