Done for the 2014 Parallels Fanworks Exchange, where I matched with Lady_Ganesh on the movie Onmyouji
This was the first time I've attempted to emulate in some vague way the style of the Taiwanese art duo Pin Fen
(Pin Fan and Chen Shu Fen). I didn't really nail it, but at least I had fun trying.
To do this, I took a bunch of screenshots of Onmyouj
i and Onmyouji II
, then bodged three of them together in Photoshop (Hiromasa, Seimei, Seimei's hand). I traced the outlines on a lightbox, then scanned them and did most of the painting in Painter (which I hadn't touched in over 2 years, so it took a long time to get back up to speed!). Patterns laid in using Photoshop, and they came from www.canstockphoto.com/
I'd never noticed until I had to paint Seimei that they'd styled Mansai Nomura's wig slightly over his ears to suggest that they were pointed!
