Kohu by DJ88 Kohu by DJ88
One of two head-shot/bust commissions for :iconkohu-arts: .
Here's the second one;

What is she looking at? where is she going? What is she doing?

......I dunno. :shrug:

This was such fun to draw, it went through some variations. Different poses and such, I didn't want to do just another side view of the head for some reason, so I gave this one an actual pose whilst still keeping the focus on mainly the head/face.

After sketching on paper, I scanned it and finished in via Sai and Photoshop.

Thank you so much for commissioning me Kohu! :hug:

Oh wow, this is so wonderful ! You did an amazing work on her, she is beautiful in your style !

This turned out amazing DJ! ;--; I *love* the perspective, and I love seeing her in your semi-realistic style, I wish I could do even half as well. :) The snow is beautiful too, and I love the slight blur in the background there ... it really gives a sense of depth to the entire picture, I love it. <3 Her eyes are lovely too, I like how she looks kind of timid/uncertain of what to do. All in all, it turned out beautifully!

Thanks for letting me commission you, I really appreciate it, I've wanted to get some art from you for awhile now. :) This came out perfect! Also, sorry for the belated reply, just got back from vacation this weekend. :)

:hug: Awr Thank you soo much for commissioning me Kohu, it was quite fun to draw your character for you.
She has such a pleasing design.

And it's okay, I saw your journal about you being on vacation. So I knew the comment was going to be a bit late.

Also, this kind of came with a "bonus" image, I don't know if you saw it, but here's a link to it.

I love it. xD And I really love the sketch version too! It's neat to see how other artists work from beginning to end. :)

I really like this for some reason... I love how you were able to draw Kohu in a realistic style and the view point. The way you drew her somehow accentuates her features. Overall great job!

Oh my goodness, this is so beautiful, DJ!!! I really need to start commenting on your art more. I always love it. I LOVE the color scheme you came up with for Kohu's "natural" colors. And I also love how you did this headshot. It kind of fools you in to thinking it's a full body picture, even though the main focus is on the face! Just beautiful, as always! :heart:
