i dont know if this is gonna work.. but lets see..
first of all make a copy of the original, so you always have the original if u screw up on this one xD so... maybe you should lighten the linearts that are "touching the water" since i see that they seem to be standing out of the water and then just like what you did on her belly strap (is that what its called xD) submerge the clothing and the body by brushing opaque/translucent color on top of them. voila! im not good at telling things but simple pic like this might help: [link]
This is really amazing! The attention to detail in this picture is just superb. I especially like the rippled background and her the floral pattern on her kimono. Her hair is also very well colored and looks pretty realistic, which is something that I find really hard to accomplish. The little raindrop-orb things scattered around the picture are also pretty cool (as well as VERY realistic-looking... how did you manage them?), and add a touch touch to this picture. If I were to suggest anything, maybe you would want the color of the background and the color of Enma's kimono and hair to be a little more contrasting, as currently, it's a little difficult to differentiate the two at time (especially the hair). Unless that's actually on purpose.
Other than that, this is beautiful. I will favorite it now. :3
yeah, i intended for it to be hard to differentiate the bg from the hair and the kimono, cos in the anime, they all merge into blackness when she is about to transport a soul into hell ^^ I use overlay layers for the hair the way you do the water droplets is create a new layer and set it to overlay select the eliptical tool and draw a circle in that circle use the gradient tool and go from black to white then click layer style/blending options and add in shadow drop (i think thats wat its called) finally create a new layer draw a little white circle over the drop if that doesnt make sense i can try and find the tutorial
