I finished this in 99.8.11; I thought that it would come out better than it did. The ink sketch looked very good (in my opinion); perhaps the colors I used were too bright. I like this piece anyway, because it is very different from my other CGs. The dress that Shampoo is wearing is a traditional Chinese dress; the more familiar 'qipao' ('cheongsam', 'China-dress') is actually Manchurian in origin, not Chinese. The qipao, Shampoo's usual outfit, was adopted by the Chinese during the Qing dynasty, in which the Manchurians ruled China.

Huh. This picture is cool.. It’s like a mixture of Rumiko Takahashi’s art and Yuu Watase’s art in one. I like both styles a lot, so, altogether, this picture is very nice.
