Yowane Haku Sandplay Singing Painting

March 1, 2013



A while ago (More like four years) I started to see cosplays based off the artwork used for the Vocaloid song “Sandplay Singing of the Dragon”. I wanted to make a cosplay for myself, but I was so busy with my life I couldn’t make one for myself nor could I afford to buy one pre-made.

Since then, my desire to make one of the costumes based off the artwork has waned, but I still am fond of the costumes, especially Yowane Haku’s. I originally wanted to make her costume for myself because I like the way it looks more than all the other Vocaloid’s costumes. Also, cosplayers didn’t make Yowane Haku’s costume wasn’t made as much as the other Vocaloids so I thought it would be nice if she got some more attention. ;) Although four years have passed, I’m still fond of Yowane’s costume and I wanted to get the love I have for the costume out of me in a way that doesn’t require me to add another costume to my already too long list of costumes to make. So, I painted a picture of Yowane wearing her costume.

Clicking on the pictures will take you to the deviantART submissions of the art.

I drew and colored the whole entire picture in Gimp with a Bamboo Wacom tablet using the original picture as a reference.

And the colored and completed version…..

I’m not entirely fond of her lips being the color it is right now, but I think I’ll keep it like that until I get really annoyed with the color…. which might be sooner than later. ;)
