Hello World! Today’s my best friend’s birthday, so let me start with a big Happy Birthday, Fil!

Now, on to the main topic: Midori Style. What is it? I don’t know, I did it only because I liked the illustration.  It was a bit hard at first, because the contours where teeny, tiny things (you can see that especially in the hair and the fringes). And then again with brushing the shadings, but that was only because I wasn’t used to it; in the end I had lots of fun.

The art didn’t include all the wallpaper, but it made up only half of it, so I had to improvise the other half – which I’m afraid is painfully obvious since I’m not that good with abstract forms. Overall it’s quite pleasing, though, IMHO.
