Base is created by ~aerieyena.

A birthday gift to myself.
I cannot help but grow increasingly disillusioned as I, still a youngster, had expected much more of myself at this stage in my life, nor do I have this depicted fresh ghetto style available to me.
In this I attempted two styles I have longed to try - a monochromatic colour scheme and a limited palette. The pibo was exceedingly difficult and had to be reshaded several times; shading stationary fabric draped vertically proved to be highly challenging. D:
There is one version with a pattern and one without. The pattern is poorly made and appears jarring in some areas, yet the hanfu itself is strangely empty without its presence.

Edit - thank you so much for the Daily Deviation! My sincere thanks to ^ClefairyKid and ^hollinesskiss, as well as to everyone who left a comment of favourite - I certainly did not expect this, and it came as the loveliest surprise! :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-11-26
s h i q i by ~Consonanta is a doll of limited colors and unlimited beauty. The shading is incredible, and the hint of extra darkness in the eyes is such a nice detail. A wonderful work that gives the feel of delicate traditional paintings. ( Suggested by ClefairyKid and Featured by IridescentStardust )

You definitely deserve a DD for this! I am wild about this color scheme and the folds. (I try feebly to imitate them to no avail) Beautiful!
