Since it's NWS month, I hunted down and dug up one of my favorite internet finds... this here knuckle-biter of an illustration.
This image does it for me in so many ways. The submission, the angle, the lighting, the rumpled kimono and hint of ankle socks. I could stare at this all day. It's tender and captivating.
- I used to religously scour CGhub for online inspiration like this but since that closed last year ArtStation has been a wonderful replacement. Because of this I unfortunately can't verify who created this illustration. The best I can dig up using Google Image search is that it may have been illustrated by a guy named Hu Junhua aka WINB from China.
