Grace and Harmony
I was mainly inspired by an illustrator by the last name of Clarke. He did some incredible black and white ink drawings for a book about Edgar Allen Poe's collection of short stories. I also happen to like Chinese calligraphy. I wanted to blend Eastern elements with Clarke's exciting black and white style. The chinese characters at the back of the female mean grace and harmony. I feel that these Chinese characters best represent the posture and colors of this character. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed drawing it.
