Woo! This was fun to do, and with it I killed three birds with one stone, because I wanted to:
1. Do Princess tutu fan art since that series was the cutest thing ever!
2. Try something completely different from what Im used to
3. Enter the contest DA had going, even though I know I wont win!
But didnt have enough time for three separate drawings.
And I was able to do all that. I used the horizontal calligraphy brush for this piece and the two people were done completely on one layer. The BG being the only other layer to this piece.
Princess Tutu really is an adorable show, if you havent seen it and you like either ballet, magical girl animes, fantasy stories, or cute romances, you should definitely watch it! To me these two are a very good idea of good and evil, but who is good and who is evil is really subjective. (warning, some spoilers to follow)
Okay sure, so most people will tell you that Princess Kraehe flat out was an evil monster, and that she did nothing but terrible things, over and over! But she would not have even started doing those terrible things had Princess Tutu not come along and put her nose in other peoples business! Not to mention the raven was just tricking and using Kraehe. As far as she knew, she was doing what was right. Okay so there wouldnt have even been a story had that not happened but still! (end spoilerness)
