    Chinese Arts

    Well, I've put together 3 chinese arts. For those of you who go to my DA, you should know about the bamboo already. I'm adding in another 2 this time around, namely, the cherry blossom and the calcite mountains in China. I've been enjoying Chinese Art of a long time so I feel like sharing with you all. Enjoy!

    wow, these are very impressive. I like the flow that the bamboo or trees and whatnot has. The mountains look like they are water spouts, sort of, and it continues the natural flow of the ink. I have always liked east asian ink works and i wish i could do them. Maybe something to consider for college.

    I saw the title "Springtime of Youth" and immeadiately thought of Gai and Lee XD

    I really like the first one, especially how the plant stem is scetioned off. It's smooth ^^.
    And I like the little birdie in the corner of the picture ^^

    i know from experience that watercolor is a very difficult medium to control and you do it really well!!!
    What's necessary in a fight isn't fear; Nothing can be born from that. If you dodge, "I won't let them cut me"; If you protect someone, "I won't let them die". If you attack, "I'll cut them".

    It is hard to control watercolor if you don't know the right amount of water to be used.
    @My Lady
    Once I thought of posting the picture, the only thing that came to my mind was spring. And I thought, why not make it Springtime of Youth? And there you have it, my own version of Rock Lee-themed art. XD

    Leen, I'm fucking impressed.

    I actually saved all three into the pc. I love the springtime of youth the most. All together, they put the prettiest art I have seen in a while.

    Reminds me of Mulan, so I'm happy. XD

    Just saw this thread now, and I was very impressed. Having taken Chinese and Japanese art history classes, I was immediately reminded of some of the old paintings. Good work Eileen.
