Really interesting and beautiful, in both idea and execution. There's something about it that makes me look at from every angle possible. Great work.

I really love this painting. It offers an very interesting style, and it's almost as if there are several types of styles in the painting. Absolutely amazing. The use of the color red makes a statement and adds life to the painting. Plus the birds in the background, transgressing from black to white, to gold, to black, makes an interesting story. You did a really great job on this. Congrats on the DD! :)

Thank you very much. You are accurate on the mixing of styles! I borrowed from my various favourite art styles like art noveau, fine art and kimono embroidery. The name Otohime refers to a japanese goddess who transformed from human into dragon, after giving birth to a child. Thus the swallows (known for their great maneuverability) indicate a tranformation/ascension! I am very happy you recognised this. The music is another dimension to it... Thanks again!

That is a really interesting way that you got the name from! I actually want to read up on that story now, it sounds really cool. Anywho, you did a really good job on this and deserve all the favs :)

Doesn't Otohime translate into "Flower Princess" in Japanese? If so, it fits. :)

:iconwalnutbirdie:
walnutbirdie Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
I'm not sure, but the princess I am portraying here is 乙姫 (otohime) and it should mean young princess! If you spell it like 音姫 (also otohime) though, you have someting much dirtier LOL
But thank you! :D
