Bought the dvd yesterday and watched it today!!! i thought it was a nice movie and loved the art style of it too. This image is kaguya walking through the bamboo forest. I used water colour paint, water based printing ink and used tea bags and green tea bag and powder. I used the normal tea bag for the ground and the green tea was the bamboo and background. Then I used adobe Photoshop elements 11 and put all the images together as they where all separate images, and adjusted the colour's of each image to suite the area of the placement, and used some burn tool for shading some areas. 

please comment and fave ^^ thank you

Jadisthis is really pretty I like the way you have colored it[both how it looks and how you accomplished that]. I looked at this before but I think I was so distracted by the idea of a movie I hadn't seen that I was thinking about that and forgot to comment. 
painting with different tea is a cool Idea, I have seen tea used to paint before but not different colors of tea. this has a bit of a stained glass looking effect. I like also the use of the burn tool to shade something colored traditionally.  
before I read the explanation, I thought some of the bamboo looked like duplicates. since you say it is assembled from different images, I guess they are. that's a cool way to use watercolor, as the trick with it tis to get everything right on one page. this way you can get the cool effect of how it looks without dealing with having to gt it all right the first time with water which causes texture problems. I'm rambling. anyhow, great work, thanks for sharing, makes me want to watch that movie and to play with tea and watercolor and photoshop.

AlexFox11Thank you!!!! Yeah the bamboos are duplicates as i only drew 4 different ones and plus it was a last minute work for my college work xD and i didnt really want to draw loads of them. But maybe would of look better plus i didnt want to paint god knows how much bamboos xD i did assemble them and had to scan them like 10 times because of the size of the paper being bigger than my scanner xD but thank you for your comment it makes me happy that you like it. :-)

JadisDuplication is a great way to draw bamboo. I liked that they looked the same even before realizing they were duplicates.  I guess the one thing I maybe would do different is where they meet the ground. since my mom grows bamboo and I prune it for her, I would draw the bases more realistic. On the other hand, that might detract from the stained-glass-like simplicity of it, so it's probably better your way really.
