What Seems to Be the Problem?

"I understand the question, but what seems to be the problem?"

I've been wanting to do an Asian 'femme fatale' type, with a qipao and gun ina noir-ish setting for a while now. earlier attempts just failed! i couldn't get anything right. This is my third try(and no i dont' want to show what the earlier ones look like :P). She ended up looking Eurasian rather than Asian, though. Ah well.

EDIT cropped the top space, scaled the head up a bit as some of you have suggested (thanks!), print submitted

My Dearest

uhm.....i spent around 4 days straight painting this..or more? who knows. That's all i've been doing for the past I dunno how many days, haha, I have no life :p.

uhh...well, basically I (1) want to paint something Asian (2) am trying to not be afraid of colours :p. THis is perhaps the most saturated pic i've made. ehh. I almost cried at the embroideries!!! It's so frustrating!

I don't know how many of you are going to say "ooh this is like Louis with an Asian Claudia" etc. etc., well the truth is that I really really like the young girl + grown man motif that is most commonly represented/known by the Claudia+Louis relationship. heh

Sisters of Mercy fan art (yup I dig Sisters of Mercy, you didn't know that, did you? ;)) , named after the song "Jolene" (yeah, yeah, I know, it's a Dolly Parton cover, but I like Eldo's version better, heh)

basically it's meant to be a quick one, though it took longer than I care to admit. Experimenting with a mix of styles here.

Painting +Photomanip+Bushes
Photo: ,
Brushes: , + my own


another piece in my Sisters of Mercy fanart series. "Marian", after my most favourite SoM song for a very long time. The hand's supposed to be Andrew Eldritch's, not that you can see the rest of his submerged body, but it is.

this took a few hours, longer than I had wanted it to be but shorter than I thought it'd take.

Marian, there's a weight above me
And the pressure is all too strong
To breathe deep
Breathe long and hard
To take the water down and go to sleep
To sink still further
Beneath the fatal wave
Marian I think I'm drowning
This sea is killing me
