when the signs of her vitiligo started appearing, her mother would tell her there was no reason to worry, or to be ashamed; her body was merely starting to show the stardust our bodies are made out of, turning her body into the milky way
idk playing around with the design for my upcoming black/desi girl with vitiligo, she wants to become an astronomer and is very passionate about astrology and stars and the vast galaxy
i’ve posted these kenzo eyes by tim lahan before but i have to post them again
Here’s my process for the Kaguya Hime illustration.
Near the the end, there were a few things bugging me that I fixed:
I realized the moon and stars were taking all the focus of the image, so I shrunk the moon, and got rid of about 80 percent of the stars. The moon is a big part of the story, but Kaguya Hime is the main character, and this is her final moment, so I wanted the focus to be more on her, not on the sky.
I brought the warm colors to the front and the cool colors to the back to bring the foreground forward.
I balanced out the hills a bit more to help them frame the focus (Kaguya), rather than just be a bunch of neat hills in the distance with no purpose.
i now have not just one but TWO pokemon pixel art shirts available. 20$ each over at inkster!!
