This drawing was surely the most interesting illustration I've worked so far.
It was also the first time I've made a decent background.

Since I started to study japanese culture and history, I've wanted to draw a Oiran. For those who don't know, Oiran was the name given to the High-class Courtesans in Yoshiwara (Especially during Edo Period). They're also known for the colorful and elaborated outfits, especially the hairstyles.

Materials used: Paint tool Sai
Inspiration: Sakuramitsutsuki - SPYAIR [youtu.be/ZRntURxcjYg]
                   Gamble - Shiina Ringo [youtu.be/-pvjsK02lco]

I hope you liked it!

The textures are gorgeous. I think I spend a minute staring at the different patterns of the oshin's costume. I am swooping over to look at your other stuff :)
