Kaguyahime Sketch

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is a sketch in preparation for a finished work.  I hope to be completing this in watercolor, though other media would be interesting too.  This show Kaguyahime, Princess of the Moon.  The story is an old Japanese fairy tale, in which a poor old man and his wife find a baby inside a bamboo stalk they cut down.  They raise the baby as their own, and she grows up to be very beautiful and has many suitors.  However, she will one day have to return to the moon........I wanted the sketch to have nice composition and show her in a quiet, reflective moment.  I can't wait to get this painted!
