I tried SO hard to imitate the cutscene art style and concept artwork style of the Black Knight but the shading just... UGHHH. I used Nimue (Amy) as a reference but the shading was still so hard to copy :/
Anyway... I settled for Sonic X style in the end, since it's nice and easy to draw x3;
This is kind of like a follow-up to this image of Prince Samuel which I drew about a week ago: https://inkbunny.net/s/1550576 :3 except this time I wanted to draw Kira how she would look in my AU before marrying Sonic and becoming his Queen~
In the story, which I am currently typing out, Lady Kirana, as she is known in this AU, is Sonic's maid or 'Lady in waiting' I suppose, if men even had ladies in waiting x3; but she had been in his services for many years and she was eternally grateful to Sonic for offering her to stay at his castle when she desperately needed a place to live and had been serving Sonic since then.
I wanted to design her clothes similarly to Maid Marian from Disney's Robin Hood, one of my favourite Disney movies of all time, since I imagine that it is what most Ladies or Maids would wear at the time and it's also a really pretty outfit :3
The first part of my story should, hopefully, be uploaded here soon... providing I don't keep on drawing lots of things to distract me x3;
