So this time it's Touhou's Flandre Scarlet, girl who spent 495 years in the basement.

This wasn't supposed to be Touhou related work at first since I only wanted to draw something that didn't have a person in major role in the picture but.. I kinda got inspiration and changed this into Touhou fanart a nd I'm pretty happy now that I did it, since I think the work got more feeling to it this way.

Perspective, lights and reflections together were kinda new stuff to me so I started drawing this as an experiement and not with much of planning. I drew those tiles pretty loosely and I propably shouldn't have done that because it shows really well. Measurements are so wrong, haha.

Yeah, about the Flandre's nonexistent reflection. I left it out pretty much because it looked better without and according to some legends, vampires doesn't have reflection so it's okay, right? Even though I'm not really sure if ZUN has stated anything about this regarding Remi and Flan.

Btw, my screen is kinda bright so I'm not sure what is visible on darker screens, heh.

495 on the wall . I'm guessing it's written in blood ? Nicely done Flandre-chan * thumbs up *

Looks almost more like a sewer than a basement. For some reason I always imagined the basement to look more like a playroom of sorts with full on furniture. Maybe I'm just being generous to Remi though.

I found this months ago on an imageboard, and I didn't even suspect that the artist could be here on Deviantart.
Really, this is probabily one of my favourite Touhou drawing everrr! ;w;
I love the dark feeling it gives, and the perspective, reflections and Flandre's siluhette are so perfect *-*
I also really like the details you put on the walls (those two are little chibi of Flan and Remi I guess, with the chalks right under them... Simply great >w< ), they give more the feeling of Flandre's confinement! *w*
I can't express properly how much I love this work.

So scary! I love it!
Although ZUN hasn't stated it, I'd think Remilia and Flandre would not have reflections, since they still have other vampire traits, eg. Weakness to sunlight, can't cross flowing water etc.
