Hi & Hello
initially a pencil drawing which has been coloured in Photoshop, I attempted an olde world map look for the background to make the image look ‘well travelled’ and i hope you like the warm saturated colours and the girl’s pose which means Namaste (nah-MUS-stay) – hello in Hindi. For more informations see Wikepedia for definition of Namaste
