beautiful

KarylAnne responds:

Thanks friend! :)

Nice drawing!
Did you draw it by hand with pencil then add the red paint with a textured in photoshop?
How was it done?

KarylAnne responds:

Thanks! You're 100% correct! I drew it on 2 pages of drawing paper, scanned, stitched them up together and added a dash of red to give it a little pop! I'm very glad you like it! :)

i'm a filipina too. :P cool.

KarylAnne responds:

haha hey! its always nice to meet a fellow filipina in the community! :) salamat sa rating~!

When one looks at that image first appears to be a single image, but is not. If you zoom in, you will notice traces of genius. I really like the track was used in sentencing law. The two red spots was just to give an even greater sense of design.
Congrats dude, good job.

5/5!

KarylAnne responds:

Wow, I don't know what to say... Thank you! That really means a lot! :) Very glad you like it!

I don't know if you yourself are of native descent, but I suggest you read that ^ either way.
This piece is really beautifully done (the detailing--WOW). But no matter how lovely, it's hard for me to see past the cultural appropriation factor.

KarylAnne responds:

Ooh, I guess the title is a bit misleading, nope I am not of native descent. I am a filipino, not a native american at all, sorry about that! The idea was given by my mom who wanted me to draw a woman with a headdress for her, hope that clears it up! I should look at history more before drawing something involving it!
