Oh, she's exquisite... and looks so real! Did you have a model, referance pic, or did you do this from memory? What ever your method, I am quite impressed! I don't know if I could ever do anything near as beautiful as this! :)

I use reference for certain elements. Like here, the wall is referenced from an ancient Buddhist fresco, the designs on her clothing from medieval Chinese robe, and the purse is from a piece I actually own. Thanks for the fav(s), BTW, glad you like my work! :)

The style of her hair is really beautiful from the way how you drew it. I also like how well you put lots of effort into her clothing as well as the detail in it. :love:

As always, I'm incredibly impressed by the emotion and detail of your work - thank you so much for sharing! I love the different faces, the expression in the eyes and face. Is that meant to be a tattoo on her forehead, and if so, does it signify anything??

:iconmjwilliam:
MJWilliam Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you... The tattoo doesn't really signify anything, it's just a random Oriental pattern.
