I really love all the rich layers, how you display it, keeping the original traditional Japanese feel with a nice touch of your own style, also how you manage to give an authentic feeling without being hystorically accurate with patterns! I always have a hard time with the patterns myself and end up randomly scribbing on the clothes. ^^'

Thank you!!
I'm glad you appreciate her!
I made the original drawing for my wife's grandmother,an adorable japanese old lady who put it in a frame in her room!
Til now,this picture remains one of my favourite drawings and works like a "lucky charm" for me!

You're welcome ^^ And I did a little search when you gave the name of Goddes Benten... I thought that it was shamizen she's playing but it turned out to be biwa, it's a japanese mandolin. Thanks to you I learned that :D

That Goddess playing shamisen reminded me of a traditional style japanese drawing...I also checked other works of yours, they really good indeed. I like both French and Japanese artists.I love their drawing style the most. But know more about Japanese culture.
'cause of these I'll be watching your works! :D

In fact Goddess Benten from the 7 Fortunate Gods is often pictured as playing biwa(shamizen's ancestor) so I followed traditions!!
And thanks also for the shamizen link(but I'm a real disaster in music or song...it's better I don't try ^^)
