Shoten Zenjin 2: Scorpion Goddess (Sprites of the Forest)
This drawing is done on one of my favorite paper surfaces, Borden and Riley Parchment paper, heavy weight. It's a thick trace paper with a marvelous and forgiving tooth. It can take a lot of abuse, erasing, redrawing, erasing, redrawing. I've also tweaked the face just a wee bit in PS.
Kudos to a website that I just love, love, love and now can't work without finding powerful references: Pinterest! This design is greatly influenced by Nouveau jewelry and architecture.
