Geisha Gal by cluedog Geisha Gal by cluedog
Hey, this marks my 700th deviation!

Here's a drawing of a geisha that wasn't quite what the guy commissioning a sequence was looking for. So, I decided to post it here. :)

Thanks! I didn't try to color it, yet. I don't work in color that much, but I really should do it more often.

Looks like a prostitute from after WWII. You know, lots of common prostitutes called themselves geisha when seeing American soldiers. Almost funny.

You could be right. I'm not sure proper Geishas would let their shoulders and cleavage be seen like that. :)

I know of an excellent website about geisha facts!

And for future reference, an oiran is not a geisha, and they don't even look like geisha. Some people get them confused for some reason.

Well, I'll be eaten by a flesh eating virus named Betty. You're right. Thanks for the link. I learn new things everyday. :)
