Byakuyarox1's OCs Ryuhiku (Front), Sayuri (Girl) and Hebihiku (Back) from her manga: A Violinist's Quest, for her challenge: Artist Search. I finished just in time!
I had a lot of fun with this piece. I'd considered many different types of backgrounds, and eventually went with the faded dragon, seeing as the manga involves them. As for the design on Hebihiku's yukata... From his name, I figured that he may be associated with snakes, so I went with Quetzalcoatl. Looking back, I probably should have done Yamata no Orochi, since it's from Japanese Mythology, whereas Quetzalcoatl is Aztec. (Or perhaps a normal snake would've sufficed...)
