Commission: Caspia by Kurumi-Lover Commission: Caspia by Kurumi-Lover
This is a commission I did for my little sister for her business Pixel Spa, her business and "a unique company specializing in nerd inspired products. Fragrances are based on video game and pop culture characters." Check out her business at the following link:
FB: www.facebook.com/Pixel-Spa-650…

I designed the character, she chose the colours, and-- TA-DAH! Here's her mascot playing PS3/PS4, whichever is cooler with you kids these days. HOW ARE THOSE ELECTRONICS WORKING UNDERWATER??

Nice work. :D She looks adorable. I like her hair design and her flower. She is really really cute. :333
Next time you should work on combining the background with your character. Currently your background and your character do not harmonize together. The reason for this may be the different style of colouring between character and background. While your character is shaded with clear colour panels, your have used a gradient shading for your background (do you understand what I'm trying to say? :D:D). This make both components looking kinda "not fitting to each other".

Thank you!
And with the bg, I kinda just slapped one together because I hate white bgs on images, so I understand that it's probably contrasting (it doesn't help that I gave her an outer glow to differentiate her more from it haha)

Yeah bg-drawing is a wall every anime/-manga-artist has to face. :D
Sure, it depends on the artist if he / she wants do overcome that wall or to develop his own elegant workarounds. ;)

Yeah you are right that the contrasting is a problem. I think the difference in lighting between bg and character makes the difference deeper.
While the background looks cold and blue, she pops out with a warm colouring (like she is sitting in the sun ). ;)

Very nice~! Much like my gamer mermaid, except she does have a reasonable place to play video games besides under the sea.
