Finished Spring 2013, Photoshop.
Original character based on a pose from a life drawing class. We had to take one of the poses we had drawn and change it into some kind of character with fur or something. So I came up with this kimono-clad Kitsune Fox girl with a samurai sword.
I drew her with some non-traditional shoes to give her a more athletic look. The sakura on her dress is from a custom Photoshop brush that I made. I used it again in the background because it seemed like a good idea.
