Here's another Samurai-Geisha taken from a gesture drawing I did in class. Since I've got extra time on my hands now (looking for work BTW - all suggestions welcome) I figure why not brush up on my digital inking skills and work on my portfolio. Anyway here she is. I'm pretty happy with the way this one came out. I sat on the floor to draw the model, so I could get a more dynamic and powerful pose. Here's the gesture.
And here's the illustration. People have mentioned that they enjoy seeing the figure drawings that these are taken from, so I'll post them when I can.
