Entry to yonaei's contest!
//long description incoming~

tbh I'm kinda disappointed that I wasn't able to get closer to how this drawing looks in person ; n ; 
I took a bunch of pictures and toyed with the camera settings to try and get the right lookt.  I wanted to get the contrast between the neon pink and the dark parts of the sky as well as the sort of purple-blue look on the whole drawing but this is the closest I could get >m<

I had a pretty hard time trying to get the look I wanted especially with the background //cries
After using my Crayolas for a while, I decided to bring out my Prismacolors since they could probably do a better job getting the darkness that I wanted~ While doing the sky, I ended up running in to the choice between getting the right dark effect or keeping the colors and details already in the cloud shading.  

While coloring, I noticed (again) some mistakes in the lineart (the character is looking to high) :'D One of them (the ribbons on the umbrella defy gravity) would have actually made sense if I stuck to my original concept for this drawing.  //the character was supposed to be kinda underwater with the umbrella sort of floating? xD idk how to explain.  I ended up decided that this was just the reflection of the character but I decided that kinda late so it looks like the character is just floating xD.  One other idea I had was the basket was empty but that idea seemed really dark...

I'm pretty happy with the actual drawing though I wish I could get a better picture of what it looks like irl >n<

Materials used: Crayola colored pencils, an ordinary black ball point pen, Sakura gelly roll pen, Premier Prismacolor colored pencils, Stabilo point 88 pens
