Cixi, the Dragon Empress, Surrounded by Eunuchs
I just finished this new illustration. Even though historic and cultural themes are not topics I usually work on, I really enjoyed working on this project. Being a little bit on the geeky side, I think it's great fun to go to the library and go through many books trying to find information and reference images. Even though there is so much information online now, I still prefer and trust libraries. Acting out different characters for reference photos was fun too. I hope you like the final result.
