While researching an art history paper on Degas and Toulouse I came across some really amazing Japanese woodblock prints. I've become a bit obsessed with them.. @_@'

Ah it's beautiful! I always admire people who color with textures. They make this picture so much more interesting without making it too cluttered.
The colors are so eye-catching. I love all the details you've managed to put in, like the flowers and her hair. And eh, basically everything else in it.

Wow. I LOVE the beautiful, vibrant colors. To do so many textures takes a unique eye - if they aren't done exactly right, they end up clashing or looking overly crowded. The softness, the blending, it's so perfect. You don't really notice the textures unless you look right at them, which to me, is perfect. Love the color green, too.

Extremely beautiful work.And I do not blame you for becoming obsessed about Japanese design and art;they are some of the best artists in the world.They designed this software,we use,and it's better than flakey Adobe Illustrator.Really!!Easy to use. Versatile.Tsk. Yes,I wish I could see more Japanese design and art myself,I love it. (these textures you used,loook great.)

Sigh. WHY do we not have the Japanese,all come to America,live here,and help educate us to all their design and art making?All the crafts?It would be worth it,to let them all live here,and come here,cause their country is very tiny and crowded.Maybe they do not want to come here.But there must be "explorers" and "colonists"there.They would be very good people for the country,and make it a lot better.I really do think that.

Yes,I do admire Japanese art and design myself,great picture,Beautiful. :)
