i like it a lot........though i have one quiff (and this is because I'm Japanese and tend to get picky about slightly incorrect thingies).

The attire (and pose) seem better suited for a flamenco sort of thing. That said, a lot of people would consider what she's wearing a kimono but it's far from it. She wouldn't be able to step out that far in a real kimono, and the sleeve designs are more Chinese.

But ignore all that, because your design is still breath-taking! I would certainly wear it, but I just feel that the Rising Sun (a motif that's very Japanese to Americans but may also imply the Yakuza in Japan) and naming it Kyoto don't fit with her pose and the costume.

I appreciate the insight Irish ninja, to be honest I'm not as knowledgeable about direct customs regarding kabuki, kyoto, kimonos or otherwise, But I'm trying to educate myself about the history. All I know is I think the whole eastern styles Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indian etc. are very cool.

Thanks everyone for the great comments!

Just read up on flamenco, it's funny cause I have done 6 of these as a series all in kimonos and I remember getting to this one and was thinking she seemed more Spanish.

I really appreciate all the comments everyone!

Susan S.

A take on the Whistler Kimono lady?

12monkeys

i really like the style of this, but something about it is bothering me... i think it's her pose. she looks like she is leaning back and getting ready to chuck her fan at somebody.

descendras

i really like the style and the illustration.
but something about the fan is a little off to me.

Susan S -
No, I have never have seen that whistler painting, she is based on a character in a comic I have been working on for the past 6 years titled Blackout. You can see a few samples on my website from volume one.

12monkeys -
hmm I don see that. She is leaning back in a dance motion, That's what I had in mind at least. But, she could be chucking the fan in a minute, you never know.

Insanely pretty, a delicate shirt with an interesting pose and perspective. Not something i'dwear, but far be it from me not to vote this highly for others to enjoy since it's a fantastic piece.
