Way back in 2012 I made a little doodle during... probably Biology 1 lecture. I got the bright idea to try making a drawing based on it. It was not the close copy I was hoping for, and the final results were not pretty. So... a little over six years later I did a new painting from a cleanup of the doodle!
The idea was to simulate water bouncing off her skin, while the moon lights her from up above.
This is the fourth or fifth time this character has been colored up a little bit. You may recognize her as one of my super cheerful chibis. The black uchikake has always been around, but I may have drawn this back before I decided to make her from something more similar to the Heian Era.
