EDIT: Now that I'm awake finally...this character was influenced from a geisha (I don't think she was a real geisha though, just dressed as one) shown in a festival in one of the Samurai Champloo episodes. You only got to see the character for about half a second, but her facial expression was enough to motivate me.
This was also going to just be monotoned at first, but I liked the pinkish red too much to fade it out into a dull color.
EDIT II: Totally forgot I needed to do this. Since I put this up for auction at Otakon this year, I put in an obnoxious watermark so no one else would print it and what not. Don't wanna allow people to have a freebie when someone else had to bid on it. D:
