No. of hours work: *Lost count... a week?
About the drawing:
It took me a while to draw everything, but its a challenge. I havent drawn any elegant or more elaborated costume design. I didnt expect that I would go on putting extra effort on this piece, maybe because I know I'll enjoy making this in the process. The moment I saw the girl's dress reference I immediately thought of "Macalania Forest" in Final Fantasy X (which is my favorite place in the game). Flowy and elegant, I want her skirt to just fly XD
it took me a while to do the background... until I decided to just go simple, moon and clouds... I also planned to add those "Pyreflies" in FFX but its too much hahahah...
