Yukata girl by getty Yukata girl by getty
Japanese summer's almost there! :D

Last year I challenged to explain summery scene.
This year I concentrated more on a person. I decided to draw yukata, since I haven't been good at drawing it. ( ...because I've been more in favor of medieval fantasy than Japanese tradition XD )

As usual, there are errors. However I recognize most of them, if not all, I'll be able to apply what I should have done to the next work...

I'm not sure if I go to the local festival this year. But if I do I'll put a photo on my webcam as I did last year. :)

Everything from sketch through final effects done on Photoshop 6.0.
Hope you like it. :D

You know, when I was young, this drawing was one of the first manga style drawing I'd ever seen. I still remember searching for it on Google. :3

Very nice!
I love the kingyo pattern on her yukata. :)
Have you tried playing around with textures before?
I think some subtle cotton textures on either the obi or yukata could create a very nice effect!
keep up the good work!

It is very beautiful. Wait...question. Whats the difference between a kimono and a yukata?
Reply

Very roughly speaking, kimono's formal, yukata's casual.
