And the Siamese are taking over!
Just kidding. But I seriously wanted to do a piece with a little more time put into it- and I've been dying to crack out my watercolors. Luckily I had the time to do so over Thanksgiving Break.
This is a portrait of Emperor Xaio's sister, Hsaio- who would later become Empress of Hunshu and Suchow's wife.....and of course Ting Tang's great great great great....grandmother. The Takai Hu is one of the Two Rivers that cut through the island of Hunshu....and I'm having fun naming feline ladies after rivers.
was over my house on Tuesday and she watched me draw the lineart. This was rendered in colored pencil, then doused with watercolor washes overtop-- and then a little bit of digital touch up.
It's a bout time I did an Anthro piece that took me at least 10 hours to finish.
