This art piece is create as a greeting "card" for my friends in Facebook and my neighbours. Although not much effort was put into the design of the Maiden, it's still my first attempted to draw a classical chinese maiden with ancient "wuxia" Attire. I've "modernized" it to give her a more femine and "sexier" appeal.

Due to Work commitments and time constraints I was not able ink it and touchup the picture the way I wanted. But it's still looks okay.

I was told that if maidens where dressed like during ancient times in China, they would be considered as whores.... I guess that's why I'm not into drawing classic chinese "wuxia" archetype characters.

The background was googled from the internet. Copyright goes to it's respective owner(s).
