For school, the topic was book cover. I chose Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.

I was halfway through the first painting when the file got corrupted and everything was lost, somehow from that frustration I went turbo and redid this new one in about a day.

Anyway the format sorta works as a wallpaper too, so enjoy! :D

Wow, so beautiful! *__*
Though, I'd LOVE to see the red replaced with blue. (ya know Sayuri being related to water so often and all)
But the red is still a magnificent color! <3

I just thought I'd let you know I just spotted a bastardized version of this in a local theatre companies brochure. Here's a link to part of the advert, you can clearly see your website has been blurred out of it [link]
