Characters from MADARA:
Sakurou and a not-yet-named Maiko (apprentice to Geisha)
He is a street performer with the tsugaru/thick-neck style of shamisen; she has the traditional karin/thin-neck shamisen appropriate for the geisha schooling.
They live in an alternate version of Edo period Japan. I gave the maiko brown hair and slight curls as this Edo is more "modern" but kept traditional attire here.
I really want to make prints of this for Kawa Kon! *w*
Texture layering is so fun but wrestling around 50+ layers @_@ my old computer would have puked. I kept losing layers too =_=;;
***I just realized that Sakurou is missing an arm DD:
OOPS. Gonna take a break from this but will fix later.....
