+Chobits - Ningyo Hime+ by larienne +Chobits - Ningyo Hime+ by larienne
...I will leave this city and go to another one.
I hope that I will meet someone.
Someone just for me.
But if that special someone falls in love with me...
I will have to leave that someone.
Even so, I want to meet that special someone.
This is what I think as I leave the city with no people.


...the title means"Mermaid Princess" or "Doll Princess" (depends on the source) and is one of the themes for 'Chobits'. Following the promise of painting fanarts of things meaningful to me, here I come with a fanart of Chii. I have never before nor since been mesmerized by a manga style this much - its simplicity, delicacy and softness made me fall for ribbons,bows, flounces and all those beautiful costumes. I've been a fan for like 9 years and it still inspires me to keep practising with my own style in hope of achieving this sort of brilliance one day long road ahead orz

I know Chii usually comes with soft colors, but since I've been in darker areas lately, I chose to paint her with black clothes. I want to do a fanart of her with some other colors too :) Now back to work with commissions and other stuff orz this pic killed me orzzzz


EDIT:
thanks for inviting this pic to your groups :hug: and accepting to those picked by me :)

Media: gouaches (this medium needs more love ffs orz) watercolours, pastels, airbrush, black ink, white ink, black marker

Chobits is one of my favourite animes ever so seeing this really captivates me! Your fan art is always amazing but when it comes to Chii I can tell you have a special place for this anime and character. Like me! When I see anything Chobits related I'm like... :iconiloveyouplz:

the drawing is pretty well done but i'm sorry you made a small mistake xD "...the title means"Mermaid Princess" and is one of the themes for 'Chobits'" ningyo hime - 人形姫 ・にんぎょひめ here stands for "doll princess" ^^ not for mermaid, i suppose you're making a confusion with "人魚" which is also read as "ningyo" and means mermaid but if you look better through the manga (the one in japanese) you will see what i mean. Chobits has nothing to do with mermaids XD
Very cute illustration again x3 chobits is my favorite series

I took this information from wikipedia, since I don't know japanese :) It is also often translated on various portals as mermaid princess. I know Chobits has nothing to do with mermaids - it's one of my favourite series, doll would match more in this context but this is just how I found it in various places :) Like I said, I don't know Japanese so I have to rely on other sources :) ty ^^

This is really nice! I love how when she's looking up, her eyes have this sort of blank look in them, as if she's not really seeing anything, or as if she can see something in the distance that no one else can see. It's so pretty! :faint:
