Geisha by vinegar Geisha by vinegar
Those of you following my blog at [link] already saw this one. It was done over a month ago for a school project. Though I do love this theme and been reading about whole geisha culture since many years (I'm known to collect hundreds books about this topic). I wonder why I actually have so few pictures showing this.. Well, maybe that will change. And yes, I didn't follow the exact image of traditional geisha on purpose. I just wanted to have some fun with this theme.

Anyway. Pencil sketch and Photoshop CS2 + Painer XI (linework, it's so much better for linework). Some textures are custom made ones, some are found on sxc.hu and similar.

I must say, you really encompassed everything that makes a geisha mysterious, beautiful, and unique.
