Kasturi by Celestial4ever Kasturi by Celestial4ever
Another character for The Fisherman's Son project. Please excuse the bad anatomy...

For those who don't know, kasturi is also a Malay name given to a calamansi lime. Her design is based on traditional Malay, and she is quite adept with the art of Silat Gayung. Naturally disciplined, she is also terribly a no-nonsense humourless warrior. However, she still enjoys feminine pleasures like painting her fingertips with henna and she absolutely enjoys long baths.

Painted in Paint Tool Sai (finally purchased the license after days/a week of being deprived of it, yay!)

I set the blending strength of the painting brush to 50% in Sai, working with the base colour at the bottom and then dragging it upwards with a lighter colour. Next, I move on to Photoshop - just paste a texture on a different layer on top, set it to multiply, and adjust the colour and/or opacity/blend.

You can find the texture in :iconro-stock:'s gallery :) Good luck and have fun!

Now I like that :D is it a brand name or a specific scent of its origin (like jasmine)?

It's actually a musk that has been popular and extremely expensive for thousands of years. ^^ I got the origin muddled, though. I think the word originated from Nepal.

great expression on the left, clearly gives off the no nonsense portion of her personality. Good stuff, Mel.
