Description: I have a tutorial submitted here on DragoArt of a Japanese Geisha that I drew a while ago. Now for the way I used to draw back then, I think that the Geisha came out pretty good. I was watching that movie “Memoirs of a Geisha” yesterday and like before, I was inspired to do another drawing on the beautiful woman of Japan that dress and look the way they do when they entertain. The Geisha that I will teach you how to draw can be replicated very easily because I made the steps and instructions simple to follow and understand. Her face is simply drawn out and her hair is a bit different than the norm. Instead of keeping all her hair up in a bun, I decided to let some hang down to give her a little bit more mystery and to make her seem more like a rebel. I really had an awesome time sketching out this young looking Geisha, and I was going to do another lesson on Asian art but I got tied up doing something different. Anyway, I have to go yet again but don’t worry, I shall return with more awesome lessons for all you artists out there. Just follow all the steps and read the instructions to this lesson on “how to draw a Geisha girl" step by step. Peace out and happy drawing.
