Skin Deep

Beauty is only Skin Deep.

Something I did About four months ago for my Observational Drawing Class Final. It has to be a compilation of at least three images and the main focus a skull.

In this pic, the compiled images are: a hand holding a brush, a table, and two or three geishas.

REFERENCE PIC for the back of the geisha: [link]

Would probably be more dramatic if I made the entire reflection a skeleton. But I procrastinated, and only had a couple of hours left before turning it in, and this is the crap I produced XD I'm sorry, Mr. Long!

lots of mistakes, but at least I passed the class! >.<

BALLPOINT PEN! 14 hours.

Ballpoint pen?! This is amazing! It reminds me of a part from the game Little Nightmares where a geisha type character is looking at herself in a mirror. I think they're obsessed with beauty but are never satisfied. This is probably what they see themselves as.
