This is a poster that I made for an university assignment, back in 2010. I used different references for the various parts of the illustration, the hair, the flower, the kimono etc. In a way one can call it a collage of images, executed through vector art.
I got to admit that I borrowed the colourful pattern from the standard patterns library in Adobe Illustrator. Though it is a defalt pattern, I thought at the time that it fitted the kimono quite well, which I still do.
