    Really great design – love the play-off between the face and the detail.

  • Thank you! I dont think I will ever try this again. It is dreadfully difficult to paint in a style that is so foreign to me. I kept trying to adjust the eyes, and lips and such so that they looked more realistic which isnt the idea of this style at all. I pleased that the comments are so kind.

    It is a brave thing to try working in a completely foreign style and you will have gained huge benefit from doing it. The Far Eartern artists were masters of simplification and stylization. Well worth the effort, and a great piece of art to boot!

    for something out of your ordinary style, this is very impressive… the tones used here & the way everything integrates works well!! & in Japanese we say “otsukaresama” :)
