GDG - Geisha Samurai

By Shannanigan

Weekly Artwork for "Girls Drawin' Girls" blog. This weeks theme is "Japanese Fashion".

Since the whole Little Girl clothing fetish the Japanese have creeps me out I decided to go "old school"... taking Samurai Armor and Geisha style and mashing them together.

As I was searching DA for Geishas I found =ladydove7-stock photo series "Geisha & Sword". Very inspiring... thanks!

PRINT AVAILABLE! Please visit my ETSY Shop for this and more!

Very awesome and beautiful! I'm horrid at coloring in photoshop... any tips?

Thank You!

Hmmm... I don't have any tips really. I sort of "do it" and hope my drawings turns out. LOL!
Only advice I can give is practice and experiment a lot to find your own way around the program.

And no matter what you read from other artists or tutorials, don't flatten your layers... use lots of them! :D

I love the addition of the Sword. The girls you draw are never helpless.
Outstanding job again...

Never helpless... there is too much of that in Girl Art.
I prefer to draw women as confident... and a bit mischievous. :D

Love the detail! Hopefully you had patterns for the fabric prints. ;)

Actually... I'm a glutton for punishment... I made the kimono print!
I used several different flower brushes I have for photoshop, so I didn't draw them myself but yeah might as well have. I think I spent as much time putting that design together than the whole rest of the drawing! :D
