2008 Oriental Beauty in Arts

Software: Photoshop (color + blend mode)

Material: Calliagraphy brush and Xuan Paper (texture + shading)

Time: 2008 June


It’s a commissioned illustration work from the Art and Culture Center of my college. I was requested to create a series of illustrations for their program pamphlet.


I took inspiration from the female figures in the Dunhuang Buddha painting and created a series of oriental beauties in arts.


I decided to sketch the rough outline and shading using Chinese brush

Final Result

Chinese Lute, Singing, Harp, Oriental Painting, Flower Appreciation, Dancing
