Indian Lady by Lynling Indian Lady by Lynling
Long time didn't draw... and this was an artwork "forced"(<-kind of) to be created... TTwTT

The whole image looks plain for me... ah, I don't mean the finished artwork, but it is just an outlined figure combinated with a lot of textures and screentones. I even couldn't find any place that I filled with black ink. :slamhead:


I don't know why I would draw Indian Lady from a lot of other topics that I could choose at... I just feel like wanna get a try on it. It was my first time drawing India culture without much of researches.

Maybe this is because I like Motives and textures.





Special Credit, and a lot of thanks for the texture designs:

I love the how this has both simplicity (probably because of the black and white tones) and yet has very fine detail. :D It is gorgeous! :love:

Lots of textures there may be, but that's what I really like about this picture. Not just the textures, but how you've used them to add richness to what you claim would otherwise be a very simple piece. So, kudos to you. :)

Thank you very much. I love using textures after I watch Gankutsuou. The anime brought me a lot impression on the texture effect. If you havent watch Gankutsuou anime before, you can have a look on it. ^w^

No I haven't, I'll look into it.

These Indian textures are lovely, but too hard to make, they really require a lot of patience I lack for the time being.

My last pic which I haven't uploaded took me several days, as I did it in Indian ink and I'm not used to. I hope it will take me some hours in the future.

I've always wondered if it was possible to portray an Indian person in manga/anime, and this answered my question
:w00t:...its fantastic, you can tell instantly that she's from India. I love the textures you've used...and also your toning. Her expression and pose are also amazing...well done!!:+favlove:
