I saw House of Flying Daggers the other day and I fell in love with the 'Beauty Song:'
An extraordinary beauty of the North...
The most beautiful being in the world
Her first glance, the city bows before her knees
Her second glance, the empire falls into ruins.
There isn't an empire or city in all creation
That we can cherish more than this beauty.
It inspired me to draw this- a mixture of Eastern culture and Western folklore. I've always been fascinated by the tales of stags and royal hunts, so this fits in nicely. Of course, the character I drew turned out male, but he's still a rare beauty.
