Artist of the Floating World by Krista-Dunaway Artist of the Floating World by Krista-Dunaway
"It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for Geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances. She sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows. The rest is secret."

This came from watching Memoirs of a Geisha over and over again and my love for Cirque du Soleil's Ką.

Photoshop CS5, Intuos4

Beautiful! I'm a big fan of Memoirs of a Geisha too :3 Her face isn't very asian, but it's lovely regardless, I love her caught-off-guard expression. Again, your work with details is amazing!
