Shiina Ringo by Kuromi-Ori Shiina Ringo by Kuromi-Ori
The portrait was inspired by her Heisei Fuuzoku album* and of Art Deco. Her predisposition with jazz arrangements, bob cut style and devil-may-care attitude somehow reminds me of the flapper girls of the Roaring 1920s era.

I've been meaning to make a Ringo portrait for the longest time; after a month or so working on this piece, I am finally happy how it turned out. Hope I did her justice ^^ I made this into a wall paper pack that comes in different screen resolutions (including smartphone and ipad versions). Enjoy! :>

Oh, and I also need to credit the wonderful Mr. Robert Ardill for his water color toolset for Photoshop that I experimented with on this work (yep, the water color IS digital :>). Look up his tutorials on youtube: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=… (great stuff!)

*imho, one of her finest work.

There were actually Japanese flappers in the 1920s as well. Look it up:

Thanks for the link, I haven't seen it before. It's interesting to get a glimpse of how women in those days lived and the challenges they go through. I also happened to read the wikipedia entry about the novel "Naomi" ~seems very intriguing for a 1920s novel.

Thanks earthy-rah! I was indeed going for a vintage look with this piece (I also blame Great Gatsby for my current art deco musings). Well, chameleon-like Shiina can definitely blend in any era.
