you didn't think i stopped drawing digitally did you? :) i started this drawing a few months ago but stopped because i had no idea how to color it. Recently i started drawing in cell shading style for work so i tried that and i am frankly quite happy with the result. I forgot how awesome this style of shading can be :D
it took some 8-10 hours of work, mostly done in Paint Tool Sai, edited in Photoshop
download the .psd to check out all the layers, some cell shading is done directly on the layer, some is on separate layers
patterns on the kimono are from gimei

If I had to write a critique for this piece (and I hope it will be well accepted and well written from my side :) ) I'd just say two things. First, I think that the illustration would benefit from some more field depth. E.g. the parts of the dragon you can see in the background should be a little less vivid, with a bit less contrast, as there were an atmospheric filter. This way, the figure would stand out more and the will-o-the-wisps would look brighter as well. My second - small - objection applies to the shadows beneath her. I think that you could apply some more darkness here and there, near to the points where she's actually resting her weight, so that the pose looks more natural, a little less "floating".

Well, this is my first critique ever on DA. I hope I was of help. ;) And of course I'm criticizing a piece which is awesome and far beyond my possibilities :)
What do you think?
