Geisha by Nar-Amarth Geisha by Nar-Amarth
Took about 4.5 hours for me to finish this one. I wanted to do a really brightly colored portrait with a pale model after doing Gene Grey, hence, Geisha!

Model was from Memoirs of a Geisha. May have been slow, but I kind of liked the movie...and the girl was gorgeous.

Critique please!

EDIT: Removed the lines on her face...

Not going to lie, I just found this again in my favourites and realised I've had a poster of his on my bedroom wall for about 3 years.

I love your fan art!<3
can I advise you something?
if you like geisha's world you should read "Geisha of Gion" of Mineko Iwasaki and Rande Brown.
in my opinion is more beautiful than Memoirs of a Geisha:D
it's one of my favourite books!:D

ENJOY:happybounce:

We like your style and would like to turn this painting into a mural for a wall in our home. Your name will definitely be on it. Hopefully you don't have a problem with this?

I guess it would depend on cost and shipping. I still would love to buy a print. Any way to make it not glossy if it's a poster. I'm planning on framing for my living room.
