Maiden of the Floating World by KaceyM Maiden of the Floating World by KaceyM
A piece I did in the style of the Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, which is something I've wanted to do for a while, and because of the theme for FCN, I had the chance to do it =). A kitsune geisha in a kimono and a natural setting seemed like a good choice. The writing in the upper right says Ukiyo-e no Otome, or Maiden of the Floating World. (although more literally maiden of the pictures of the floating world, as Ukiyo-e is the word used to describe the art style of the time)

Originally done for the FCN conbook, but I guess it didn't make it into the book.

Done with micron inks, and acrylic paints on 8"x10.5" illustration board.

Classical Kitsune: Fox and woman combined.  The background and such are very well done.  As always, excellent artwork!

I very much like how the face changes between forms depending on the eye's focus.

Gorgeous colors! I like the look of the kitsune geisha's kimono, too, along with her character design =D

I already commented on this on FA because you posted there first, but it's good to see it over here as well. Nice work.
