Not a kimono, this is Chinese Hanfu.
I absolutely love Hanfu.

Trying to portray a boyish-looking lotus fairy girl.
I've never enjoyed drawing a women so much.

Trying out a more uniform single color for the first time.

This fairy is lovely and in my opinion very well done.
The Hanfu is so beautiful - you Asians have so wonderful and elegant fashion! (We Europeans once had... but today - ?)
Traditional Asian garments are timeless and I like to learn about the Hanfu from you.
All the best for you and, please, keep on sharing your talents with other people like me.

I wish you'd included more of the dark purple, like to highlight her hair, just for some added contrast... She's obviously female, which I think shows most in her eyes. Once again, Amazing detail :)

A hanfu! Yaaay, now I know what it's called! ^_^

Japanese=kimono
Korean=hanbok
Chinese=hanfu

I'm thinking 'fu' must be a sino word for clothing, since the Korean uses many of the same words and 'han' refers to the people, either Korean or Chinese depending on the exact word or phrase. More common words, including 'clothing,' are usually what's different.
