Collab - Beneath the boughs by Swagtail Collab - Beneath the boughs by Swagtail
Collab with the Talented *sarah-grey

From my end - I was given a few ideas, mainly centering around Japanese folklore about Kitsune's, I have a soft spot for them so no time flat I had a sketch ready and waiting for her incredible talent to flood with color, and she did so very well! One of the things that really surprised me in a pleasant way was to see Bindi turned Kitsune in the pic! the green kimono very flattering to boot.
The linework

From Sarah's end, she tried a new kind of pomegranate and blueberry tea, hoping it would stain the paper a different color. It didn't, but it had bits of blueberry in it that added some purple-ish blue spots when she squished on the grains a bit. >_> It mainly just made her want to see what staining with blueberries would be like...

+ Tea stain on illustration board
+ Acrylic, pastel dust, micron pen, and gel pen

very lovely work, the only problem I feel like is something wrong with their faces. I can't pin point it yet but it feels like something is wrong.

Other than that, you did a wonderful improvement.
