A Cold Geisha Night by Snigom A Cold Geisha Night by Snigom
Pencil on Strathmore 300 Series Bristol board (9 x 6). Scanned in and inked in Illustrator CS4. Then colored by me in Photoshop CS4 64-Bit. Kimono design was actually done in Painter 10. The background was constructed using texture photos I had taken. The out-door background was painted in Photoshop CS4 64-bit.

This is to be the Art Show Badge for AnimeFest 2009. So Captain, I hope you like it :D

I did do more 'Geisha' research this time around than before. Oddly enough this was what I originally wanted to do but didn't think I could pull it off.

I will say this, this piece is as close to what I saw in my head than any other drawing I have ever done in my life :omg:

Thanks! I used a technique for doing 'forced perspective' that gave the area a bit more depth. I must say I was even a bit shocked by the end result. :D
