Another sketch for the Gemstone Challenge!  I’m quite looking forward to coloring this one in. :3

Today I wanted to try something a little different for the composition. Instead of an actual gemstone, as I’ve done all week, I used a figurative ‘pearl’ – the moon. I think it will be quite pretty painted all in pastel shades. Also, I am not sure how I want to render the leaves, so I just used a preset, textured brush as a placeholder. 🙂

Fun fact: Her outfit and hairstyle are inspire by ancient Chinese court dress, but are by no means accurate!  Historic Chinese costumes are so intricate, flowing, beautiful – I’d like to draw more outfits inspired by these fashions.
