Yuru Yuri’s ever-proactive artist, Namori, has released an illustration unsurprisingly fantastic as usual – yet this one isn’t of any typical highschool girls or yuri scenario, it’s Touhou’s blonde-haired Flandre Scarlet.
Be it Touhou characters or yuri inclined middle schoolers, Namori’s character designs are always consistently transcendental for truly many a reason – yet one of the more shining few behind such which none can so easily replicate is that her characters pack vitality and personality every time, without fail, and of course that all applies here as well.
Picking out a few points of personal flavor, Flandre’s hair is certainly an aspect wonderful in speaking of her person – her hair flows not in a single direction, yet a multitude which all seem to move in a manner stuck in time. Some strands of her mane reach out from the back – whilst others seem to remain in place within the front, yet in a manner which appears busy and active, making it seem as if she’s simply paused for a moment before disappearing off in a flash similarly to how attempting to touch a bird may cause it to fly away forever.
Her visage is lovely – and giving a few specific features some recognition, there’s a pair of two particularly captivating details which work to make her visage as ensnaring as it is. Breaking the commonality, her attention isn’t affixed our direction – it looks as if she’s mesmerized by something above, yet rather than leave the onlooker feeling irrelevant, a single eye is set straight upon us. And as one can see, the eye is indeed a vast pool of intricacy – a sphere of radiant hues, with several spots of highlight atop.
Turning attention towards the fingers, this was certainly a fine tact of seduction to include – curvature will always by nature entrance the eye, however in this case, her hand is also concurrently giving those with relevant fetishes something to revel.
And from there, the colors are of course a set of details to praise as well – consistency and balance is found in recurring hues, such as those of her outfit which are also seen in the form of a dress and a hat to match. Yet ensemble aside, it would be silly to overlook her wings as well – a beautiful arrangement of bulbs which repeats tones of yellow, red, and green, amongst others.
The solid black background is all so fitting in establishing a mystic feel – as well as of course allowing all the magnificent colors to delicately glow.
