initially this was a speed sketch, but i ended up picking at it a few hours a day just to relax. then i eventually reached the "point of no return" where i had worked on it for too long to not finish it. so here it is! i'm personally kind of disappointed about the fish but i reallllly don't feel like working on this anymore.
i'm aware that the kimono design makes no sense and she's wearing it too high on her chest. sorry!
