And this is the end key, again Ishii’s “shuusei no shuusei,” with the annotated proposal in the first thumb and Fukuda’s rough in the second.

The last two make an interesting comparison. In the rough, Suiseiseki definitely does look surprised, but in a stereotyped way that seems detached. Notice how Fukuda has her looking out of the corner of her eyes back at the shattering window. Then see how Ishii gave gave the image much more impact by having Sui end her move looking directly at the viewer. That moves us “into the scene” for a second by putting us in the position of the incoming Suigintou.

And the swirling hair and lace are both done with a touch of elegance, making this one of the loveliest portraits I own of this complex, tragic character.
