New Pic - "Onna Bugeisha"

An onna bugeisha was a female of the buke class in feudal Japan. The term consists of the word onna "woman" and the word bugeisha "warrior".

This is my ongoing attempt to try and simplify my linework, while making the girls cuter. I've started using different proportions to give my girls a more teenage look. I played around with backgrounds for ages, I just couldn't get anything to look right. In the end I settled for a swamp setting with the moon in the background.. seemed to work well.

More stuff soon.. Easter holidays are coming up, so plenty of time to draw girls!! :)
