Title and kanji in picture translate to 'Withered Flower,' it's a Faye Wong song. Very inspired by watching the video for Faye Wong's song on the soundtrack of 'Hero'(not Fa See Liu), that newish Jet Li movie. You should see the previews. Some of the colors, the costumes, everything. Very inspirational. I mean, tell me this does not make you want to draw something in a kimono thingie.
Corel Painter 8. Yes I know the katana is very very curved. I like it that way. Sorry Aaron. Another picture done during a ATHF marathon >
