Asian inspired.

As promised, some illustrations from my Master's Degree work. Some older, some just recently finished (well, today, first two). Many refs used, obviously. I studied lots of japanese patterns and ukiyo-e, also got inspired by some poses and photos (especially the girl with red and blue flowers in her hair, here's the link to this one, it's a really cool photo), though in the end nothing was referenced too direct anyway and most started as pencil sketches. Lots of fun with colours, that's for sure ;)

Oldest is at the bottom and it's also based on the Moleskine sketch I showed earlier. It's a fun experience (still ongoing, 3 or 4 more to come). I started with a more realistic approach to move towards something more graphic, flat, line based which is what I actually wanted in first place. I just never have the courage to just leave something flat and unpolished. I have to say newest two (at the top, brown and blue) are the ones I'm most fond of. At least for now.

Ah, a fun fact for those really into details - I'm a bit in a hurry with those, so I actually re-used lots of flowers and patterns I painted before. Or you can say I just got lazy. But I guess using my own art to create new one doesn't count as cheating, does it? ;)

They're all absolutely incredible, even though I agree with you and I like the first from the top the most!
