Blade Under Mask: Nae, Asamitsu by White-Mantis Blade Under Mask: Nae, Asamitsu by White-Mantis
This is a rather old illustration I did when I was inactive here. I still like it so I took it and improved it a bit to post here!

This is Nae in her oficial senior maiko outfit. She doesn't wear her usual ponytail and when she's working. This is a stylized version of the ofuku hairstyle for senior maiko, but I the liberty to make some modifications. As beautiful as it is, I feel it gives Nae an appearance that is more mature than it should be, so I added fringe and bangs as well as keeping her classic "flying sideburns" (I don't know how to call it! The... "thingies" at her cheeks!).

It's still making her more mature, but much less than unmodified hairstyle!

Asamitsu is her stage name, the one she uses when she's at work!

Next I'm going to make a guide to the Greatlander kimono xD and how they fit all the arms and abdomen and wings hahaha!

How do you get the texture to work like that? 
Whenever I use a texture, I can't color it or change the color to what I need it to be. If that makes sense.

It's a very nice look, carrying the grace and dignity of being a 'mature' member of her group, while the flying sideburns hold onto some individuality.
