Yokai by nastynoser Yokai by nastynoser
Just been reading a bit about geishas lately, one of the oddest things I didn't know before was that they were originally all male, they sang and danced at brothels to entertain people waiting to see prostitutes.

That well reminds me of the "Bone Eaters" well from InuYasha...

love it!!! really awesome piece. one crit, though, is that the geisha's righthand leg (our left) doesn't seem to match up with where the character's butt is sitting on the bench. the leg's thigh is on a totally different angle or something, you see what i mean?? :XD: anyway, just trying to help. ;)

Yeah, I see what you mean, I thought that the cloth around her butt should sort of fan out with all the fabric but It really does just look like she has a strange butt. I'll definitely fix that, thank you!!

That is absolutely incredible. The lines and colors are so complex. Is she sitting on a well? It looks like a reference to Ring. How long did this take?

Thanks! Yeah It's a Japanese style well, the thing coming out of it Sadako style is a kappa demon: [link]

I kind of drew it at a leisurely pace so I'm not sure how long it took, around 16 hours maybe.
