Pop-Culture by EsebeiDoran Pop-Culture by EsebeiDoran
[Close call] This is my Geisha drawing, and it took me a month to finish. When I stumbled upon this contest, I thought that my Geisha would fit into this contest really well.

The Geisha that I drew was drawn traditionally, then scanned, then edited in Adobe Photoshop CS2. This would be my favorite piece, and I believe that it clearly represent myself as an artist. It depicts what I'm influenced by; Japanese, Roman and Pacific cultures.

Why Geisha? Because Geisha is an artist; a dancer, singer, and a performer. With that as my subject, I thought I would mash all of my favorite cultures into one. You will see I put Samoan Tribal Tattoo designs; Greek/Roman olive crown; and a Japanese Geisha; with a little splash of color, to represent my musical taste, Pop Music.

I was very hesitant to share the final product of my drawing, especially to a contest but; I thought that my design suits FIAT Imagination. We, human beings, artists, are the ones who give birth to art. That's why I drew the Geisha. We artists, have so many options, directions, we want to put on our canvas, but we only go with what we feel like drawing. We express ourselves, through art, with our imagination. We go to different places, experience different cultures, and explore our likes and dislikes, and be the Geisha's that we are. Express our imagination. Draw on to the canvas, like a Geisha. And feed your brain with the experience, that you obtained.

So I hope that I get picked. I feel very passionate about my Geisha design, and what it represents. Geishas are artists. We can't draw with no imagination; and we can't imagine, if we never experienced.

Thank you.

You know, I was wondering what to call you, then I saw your username and I'm like, "No.. he's not abnormal.. I am" lol

Thank you. Well.. I just re-read the Official Rules.. And it did say (paraphrased) not to portray a single race/ethnicity...etc. Mine, of course, was more Japanese :( So that's a violation. :iconcrycryplz:
