Kitsune and Karasu Share a Dance

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

 This is a painting I completed for the Midsummer Masquerade contest.  As soon as I read the contest, this image popped into my head and I ran, ran, ran with it.  Very rarely does something I see in my head come out exactly as I would like it to in a painting.  This was done completely in watercolor, though I usually use a Gpen or technical pen for inking.  Kitsune is a fox and Karasu is a raven.  I thought it would be fun to give them features of animals and people, the masks being the mystery.  My favorite thing was all the little details (though a pain at the time) and creating textures in her fur and his feathers.  She has chrysanthemums on her yukata and he has thistle.  I am super excited to frame this and hang it!  I worked really hard on this and put a lot of thought into it.
