Geisha of hearts sketch. random idea i've been thinking of for a while - i have an old pack of cards with some awesome designs and i thought it would be interesting to do a card design with the queens in the old japanese tradition way of drawing. this is my first attempt and its all right but there are things to tweak and change around.

the paper i used was vellum and while its great to use with plain india ink (which is what i used) marker (tria color marker) doesn't really work well with it. its kinda like watercoloring almost - i'm looking for a more vibrant effect. look at the skin - i colored it but you can't even tell. so when i get all four done i'll post em'
