Reimu :: Winter Saturation by AsakuraShinji Reimu :: Winter Saturation by AsakuraShinji

Hakurei Reimu - Touhou Project

This is kind of a continuation to the "Reimu :: Autumn Colors" I drew last year. This is probably my first decent attempt at drawing snow... the previous two ended in failure... TwT

... btw, don't you feel cold, Reimu...? (´・ω・`)

Ah, snow... the one thing I won't get this winter due to living in Georgia.  Right at the coast.

But, having started playing games of the Touhou Project just today, I already really like Reimu.  She's nice, chatty with the bosses who use spells that spread like fireworks, and has cool shrine maiden powers.  Complete with Shinto shrine.  So... good job.

Haha, me too. I live right on the equator so we never had winter here.

And thank you very much! :D

I really like this drawing. Your other works are pretty too, with all their details and stunning backgrounds, but this might be my personal favorite among them. (Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the drawing has Reimu in it. I don't consider myself a Touhou fan, but I've liked Reimu's character design from the moment I first saw it. The color palette you used here is really nice too.)

I can now truly appreciate this for all it's worth.
While I haven't played Touhou I can certainly play some of the songs from it. (I play the piano by the way :D, if you didn't know that)
Are you going to do a continuation of this in Spring? Even if you don't do it for Reimu you could do it for another character, or you don't need to do it at all. Though it would be cool, including a summer one then you can say you've done all seasons. I would probably join you, though you would definitely do a better drawing than me.

I personally feel that you've done a superb job with the snow, I struggle with doing it.
And you can draw trees, could you give me any suggestions? As you've already seen that I'm not very good.

Nice, I can't even play any music instruments, hahaha....

Of course I'll continue it, since the beginning I already planned to make this a set of four pictures, one for each season. Also, I'm not drawing it in each season, but each year. So the autumn reimu at 2013, winter reimu at 2014, summer reimu at 2015, and spring reimu at 2016. This way I'll be able to see my improvement in four years. :>

For trees... just the same thing as I always say to others, have proper references. If you're drawing digitally, try using jonasdero's nature/environmental brushes, they really help. A lot.

You can't? Oh that's a shame. I like playing a lot, I know several Touhou pieces.
This includes:
Septette for the dead princess,
The secret girl's room,
(a bit of) U.N. Owen Was Her (jazz style)
And that's not all, I know several other pieces.
I learn Septette on Tuesday and the Secret room on Friday. I like my ability to be able to learn a song really fast.
Oh and I started learning a jazz orientation of U.N. Owen Was Her yesterday, so I'm not quite ready for it just yet (It's really hard after all)

Yay! I was wondering about that, I will look forward to summer time Reimu!

I've tried the first many times, but I never heard of that digital method. You've just made my life so much easier!
Thanks Shinji-sensei!

Well, actually it's more like I don't have time (and motivation) to learn... with drawing, reading, gaming, and programming, I already have no free time left, lel...

You're welcome~ :>

That's fine~ You're not me who does reading, writing, drawing, gaming... programming, studying, listening to music, fixing IT problems in the house, doing Ironing, um is there anything I've missed... oh yeah piano practice, composing, transcribing and much more. I also go to college everyday and do more work there.
I have a busy life and I just make myself busier (I don't know why!).
I'm still a student obviously and I intend to go to Uni next year.

At least you don't have to feed your family and paying your brothers' tuition while also doing university on top of it. It sure is good to be a student...

... That I was not expecting. I'm the eldest so I don't need to worry about things like that... yet.
I'll have to be doing that some day in the future (if I have kids).
