Goodness, I had to really nit-pick to even find ANYTHING to critique!

First off, let me begin with your praises. What a beautiful kimono you've drawn! As someone who wears kimono somewhat often, I have to say I'm impressed. The obi-jime and obi-age perfectly compliment the wonderful whites and blues of the obi and the kimono itself. You even made sure that the nagajuban and the kimono robe crossed left over the right, and that the han-eri was visible over the kimono's collar, which was turned in as a real kimono would have to be. Many people don't know that, kudos to you! The obi-jime is even tied in what seems to be the correct knot, though I'm not wearing my glasses.

That being said, traditional hairstyles for kimono would not have hair down. It's traditional for hair to be up, either by tying or clips, so the tendrils hanging down really shouldn't be there at all, especially because she's dressed and ready to go. But her hair is lovely, and the ornaments are adorable. I would love kanzashi as elegant as that!

Her left hand, the one casually reposed, has a tiny, tiny thing out of place. Her ring finger nail is straight, whereas her finger is curved. It makes it look like her finger is just a little bit odd, though that's a very, very tiny little detail.

All in all, this is a lovely piece. The color choices could not be more perfect! There is never a place where it seems overwhelming or underwhelming, each detail is rich and beautiful.

Oh, and if you know of a place to get a kimono like this, do kindly let me know.

The thing i love the most about this work is the amazing lighting. you've managed to make the setting with it. The detail and proportions are great as well, and the walls and background are simple enough to not detract from the main focus (obviously the woman).

that being said however, the flowers in the foreground are too bright. if the light is coming from behind the woman, then it stands to reason her shadow will fall across whatever is in the foreground. I think if you darkened them a bit and added some more shading and shadows to them then you would only improve the piece.

Beautiful...great scenery and background lighting. Your latest works have this glow to them that sets them apart and makes them so attractive. Lovely rendering of the face and hair. The skin color just makes it stand out amongst all the other colors and tones. Awesome rendition of the scene.

Coincidentally, this is the art for my card, Kakita Kae, in Legend of the Five Rings. I absolutely, positively love it. When I was told that you had done her art I was ecstatic for I knew she was going to be beautiful.

There are details in this piece that stood out to me. First, The details on the furniture are well done. It seems like many artists neglect those details when doing pieces like this one. Second, I love the warm the lighting from behind Kae adds to the piece. Finally, all that encompasses her kimono. I adore the patterns that you chose for her kimono. I, too, wear kimono somewhat often so when I saw that you correctly dressed her in the traditional kimono I was quite pleased and appreciative.

I can't express how thankful I am that you did this piece so, thank you Mr. Wibisono for making this girl very, very happy.

Kakita Kae. The woman that most of the Crane Clan are putting their hopes and dreams upon.

When I first saw the art, I thought that she would be the Asahina sake master that was features recently in a fiction. However, I think we were all floored by the powerhouse of a card that we got. Definitely fitting of the lovely artwork.

BTW, do you make playmats featuring any of your artwork. I'd love to have one that features Kakita Kae.

By any chance do you have playmats featuring any of your art?

sry for my bad english I'm german :D

I'd draw the ikebana flower's basin.that would stretch the picture a bit to the left so all the concentration would be on her.and you wouldn't have the feeling like she's about to drop out of the picture.

Just stupid ideas.please ignore them if you thought in another way.I'm really bad in comparison to you.
