Xiao Xian: Little Deity

My translation skills suck but heres a rough translation of the poem

The tiger loves the high moutains for a hidden motive

Everyone suspects it like a fox

When the flowers turn yellow and the geese migrates

Its reputation shall reach that of kings

poem originates from a chinese fortune telling book

i did not write the caligraphy, someone else did, this person will not scream at me for not giving him credit. so nyahaha. XD caligraphy was done with real brush on paper. everything else is painter and photoshop with tablet.


im borrowing this thumb to add more holiday feel to my artist comment. XD

for more of these, head on to :iconzemotion:

"Simply amazing! You have excelled this time my dear ... I always thought his drawings very beautiful and rich in detail, but I'm crazy when I see pictures like this, with hand-colored air."

"Simplesmente fantástico! Você se superou desta vez meu caro... Sempre achei seus desenhos muito lindos e ricos em detalhes, mas fico louco quando vejo desenhos assim, com ar de colorido à mão."

"Simplemente increíble! Que han sobresalido en esta ocasión mi querido ... Siempre he pensado que sus dibujos muy bellos y ricos en detalles, pero que estoy loco cuando veo fotos como esta, con la mano de color del aire."

Nice man! I like this as this looks & feels different from the other usual works fo yours. It looks & feels alot like those ancient chinese/japanese artworks on printed scrolls. Cool
