Kahana Ryuusaki Sketch by Yamigirl21 Kahana Ryuusaki Sketch by Yamigirl21
Hello there everyone!

I hope that you're all doing well! ^_^ I have here yet another sketch; a head shot depicting my rendition of :iconyourmomsaname:'s lovely character Kahana Ryuusaki. As always I had an enjoyable time rendering this OC. :) It's a challenge trying to keep defining aspects intact while also trying to give a character portrayal your own unique touch to it. I hope I succeeded in doing so as I always ALWAYS fret about such things. ^^; For a special occasion, I curled her two locks of hair before her ears, and curled the ends of her hair, though I tried to keep the majority of it straight. I also added some ribbons in her hair which will match with the dress that she'll be wearing. Again this is a work in progress, but I would appreciate any feedback, especially from the creator herself. ^_^ Take good care now everyone! :D

Love,
Yamigirl21

HOLY CRAP O_O -squeak- ;A;!!! Kahana looks SO FREAKING ADORABLE QAQ I never considered curling her hair, but it really suits her! I'm surprised at that XD BUT THANK YOU ;A; The curls and the ribbons and even the dress give her more of an innocent appearance, so I LOVE IT :la: Thank you so much again ;u; Really :heart: :tighthug:

Ack! :ashamed: I'm sooo far behind on comments! >< I'm SO sorry, girl! Please forgive me for taking ridiculously long to respond to your words! :ashamed: And please know that I was :star:very:star: happy that you liked my rendition of your lovely Kahana. :blushes:. I was sooooo worried about depicting all of the girls, since I know what it is to love your original characters so deeply and to want to maintain their defining elements. I tried to take into account the constructive criticism that I received from friends and even here on DA when it came to drawing all of the original characters from :icontheundergarments: club as I slowly developed my image. I really do hope that you liked the second version of this sketch and of course how I painted your Kahana in the final image. I was a little worried that maybe you liked this version better than the later one...? :forgiveme:

But hey, I do hope you know that I definitely had an absolute :star:blast:star: depicting your precious girl as well as the others! :w00t: I only hope that I was able to do her justice in the end! :) She really is a great character and the more I see your work and your unique style/coloring method, the more I can truly appreciate the art the you create! :D Thank you again for commenting and take good care of yourself now! Happy Holidays to you! :thanks:

Cute! I like the idea of hair ribbons matching her dress, and your taking artistic liberties with the locks of hair by her cheeks really doesn't make her look any less like Kahana. :) As far as crit, the cleavage might be too high (even when emphasized, I don't believe it should be much higher than the armpit), and while I realize she is turning her head, the sternomastoid muscle seems unnecessarily pronounced. Maybe keep the two inner lines below her chin and erase the the one closest to the outside of her neck, if that makes any sense? That might just be my personal preference, though. Can't wait to see the finished product!

Hello there! :) I'm so so sorry for taking so long in responding to this comment! :ashamed: I've gotten rather behind on messages, but please know that I always do respond in time, no matter what!

And I *especially* wanted to thank you SOOO very much for not only commenting on this sketch but for the very :star:very:star: helpful feedback that you gave in regards to it! Thank you again! It meant a lot to me and I truly did appreciate the honesty in the feedback that you gave too! I did take into account what you said and hopefully the newer version of the sketch and the final have these elements corrected....? I sure hope so anyways! But thank you again for all of your kind words! It was also very reassuring to hear that you thought that I depicted Kahana true to her character, especially since it was my first time drawing her, and given that I did take liberties with her hair and clothing! Once more, I thank you! Take good care now and Happy Holidays! :thanks:
