"The Lesson of Earth are rarely subtle in nature." - Togashi Korimi

Togashi Korimi is a powerful Ize Zumi and a temple defender. The Ise Zumi is a Dragon Clan's elite order of tattooed monks. Most Ise Zumi has their whole body tattoed with several mythical symbols that granted them magical powers. They are generally pacifist, but they can be fierce warriors when necessary. Ise Zumi were remarkably easy to recognize because they rarely wore anything more than a couple of simple garments and their skins were covered in intricate tattoos.

This is Togashi Korimi fanboys version : )

There are literally no words to describe this amazing piece of art. Every detail of a human is so beautifully refined in the lady's skin, hair and face. The shading is brilliant! The shadows under her arms and curves make her look real and even more striking as a figure. Though the strands of hair look remarkably real, the ends can be sharper, less blurred but this doesn't make the image any less awe-inspiring than it already is. The background and stone (lion head I think it is) are also very nicely rendered so that they actually look like the behavior of the focus on a camera lens. Overall, this piece is photographically real and any person would mistake it for a real picture when they saw it.

Impactan los colores y la perspectiva del dibujo.
Me encantan los tatuajes que van en armonía con la imagen, con temas orientales y los tonos suaves que se mezclan perfectamente con los de la piel.
Me gusta mucho como ha quedado el pelo, con los mechones que caen por la espalda y el pecho.
El fondo también es muy acertado y cuidadosamente hecho.
Sensual pero elegante.
Sin embargo para mi gusto le falta textura en el rostro, haciendo que la parte de los ojos quede demasiado plana. Pero me gusta el detalle de las arruguitas del cuello que le da realismo a la pose.

Getting a fav from me is not easy. It's just too many really really good works on dA that a lot of them would deserve it, but only a few that really get me stunned come into my collection. And this piece is one of them.
I don't know how to explain it in shorter thhan my click on the picture to make sure, whether this really is a drawing or is just photo manipulation. Softness of her skin, the way shadows work, drop on her skin, on the wall, the reflection of environment, overall luminosity. It's just hard to believe it's a drawing, even though closer look would reveal it - on the hands maybe and on the cloth - but don't bother, since it's her face and body that matters and catches the eye. Not to be confused - it's all drawn perfectly and actually making it any more realistic would - honestly - be disturbing.
Really an outstanding piece of artwork that probably just can't get any better. It's well 'weighted', in composition, good set of colors... I have nothing to complain about and I don't know anyone else who just might.
Normally I don't give such exclusively positive reviews since sometimes I'm afraid it'll get into their head (as we say here in my country). But checking out your older works and some newer, I'm quite sure you will keep on investing a lot of your energy into your artwork and maintain the quality level. And that would probably conclude my 'official review'...

Slightly less official: Personally, if I ever reach that level, I'm sure I won't have to do anything else in my life. :) But keeping it real, I probably won't... which doesn't mean I won't try to. :P
