Beauty and the Enigma by ArtFurry Beauty and the Enigma by ArtFurry
Minako Matsui – a silent, enigmatic and, as some might say, forlorn geisha. In many people’s eyes, Minako is the divinely exquisite dancer with long silky smooth hair and a picture perfect make-over. Many do not know Minako’s abysmal feelings and thoughts, and frankly, nobody cares enough to look beyond those stunning searching eyes but a few. They see something rare, something new and something eccentric in Minako’s air and manner. And so, they think it better to keep their distance and watch from a far.
Minako has a dark and deeply scarred past burned deep in her memory. Something that stole her innocence, youth and life itself. She often sits by herself and wonders what life could have had been if it weren’t for her damned past. If only she could have a clean slate to start a new… But Minako knew better. She knew that such was wishful thinking of a little child and so she grew up believing that the universe owed her something. That every measly creature that walked the surface of the Earth owed her the life that she could have had had. So she sits and waits, behind her vey own shadows. She waits, waits and waits some more for the right moment to strike and claim back what she thinks is rightfully hers…


Software: Photoshop CS4
Time: 21 hours

Love the way you did her hair, drawingwise (cause, Maaan, I can't do that)
I also find her expression interesting.

this is very beautiful. you did a great job and a very nice attention to detail, however, i'll have to admit my very first thoughts went straight to `Dianae's piece Hanagumori.

I'm sure you learned a lot from it. I see where you made your own spin, but you are certainly talented enough to take the concept in your own direction :)

yea that is the art piece that inspired me to draw my version of gesiha :D ... although I wasn't solely relying on it
I had more real life characters that took my breath away and I loved the experience of learning from all those references. I am glad you see certain originality in my artwork
thank u :thanks:
