...i MUST be dreaming

thanks too, for all the well wishes~~~>w</

Kingyo Hata means 'Gold Fish Flag' in Japanese; Hyakki is taken from the Hyakki Yagyō --- the Night Parade of a 100 demons

the Fox Spirit is fishing for a Kingyo Hata no Hyakki using a lantern's light to attract the goldfish lanterns youkai.

in Chinese, i meant to name it '金魚旗百鬼夜行祭'
my comic fiesta Day 98 countdown art for 2012 :)...
this is one of the official mascots--Tea. he has green hair and a sister called Coffy, and another sibling (?) called Yin Yong

the official FB page for CF is here:

decided to go traditional for this entry---as everyone else is doing digital (gets kicked*)

tools: zig millenium and unipin ink pens + alpha watercolours + 300gsm watercolour paper+ poster colour gold as the gold splashes on the left near the character+ white, silver and gold ink pens for the splatter effects and for hair highlights+狼毫calligraphy brushes (looks liek this : [link] )

time taken: ...+-20 hours, on and off for 3 days after work

proof that it really IS watertcolours:

some other artworks: save you trouble, the 1st DD is this one

i blush that i actually got a DD with these two, and so i thank the you that suggested it, very very much

Fishing for a Kingyo Hata no Hyakki is an impressive piece in every single aspect! Everything flows gracefully, bringing the character and its surroundings to life as well as making it all feel magical and ethereal! The rest of *darkn2ght's gallery is a must see!

Wow! This is amazing. I love how you can imagine an entire story  surrounding this character from just one picture. Do you mind if I use this as the background for my desktop?

wOW, I would've been shocked if this WEREN'T a DD!
darkn2ght Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013
And i, probably won't. i have experienced one artwork being rejected by one club but being featured in another before, lol. beats me how it works, but i am happy this one got a DD as i did pour a lot of my heart into it^-^
