Flying Koi: Year of the Tiger by nikkibuu Flying Koi: Year of the Tiger by nikkibuu
This is for the Flying Koi Chinese New Year Valentine's contest. o:

Characters are all from :iconflynfreako:'s comic, Flying Koi: [link]

This took a while...for some reason I decided to do two things I'm not good at/haven't practiced much; night scenes and group portraits. I would have drawn all of the characters, but I ran out of room on the paper that I drew the original sketch on. xD

I know Tsuru is wearing a kimono and Maiko is wearing a...walolita kimono thing, which are obviously Japanese, b-but... they're wearing tiger ears, which has to do with the Chinese new year, right? xD;

oh the night scene looks really good! :D the colors & shading look like it's really night *o*
and you did well with the group scene... they're all in different poses so it's interesting to look at~!

i really love their outfits... especially maiko's XD she stands out to me in this picture. i think it's the combination of outfit with pose X3 oh! and i like how you included ryoko's tattoo :D
ah! i really like how you shined their hair *_* it's so pretty~
they're all in character with their poses :D you can really see their attitudes :3
