Err, see that arrow there, I forgot how to use photoshop filters to render a rod instead of handpainting it, does anyone know?
I think at least 90% of you wouldn't know who he is 0A0
My fav from Water Margin is Yan Qing actually, but I just wanted to draw an oriental archer.
It's the first time I drew someone with a determined righteous look, which is how Hua Rong is
Inspired from Japanese kyudo, it's nice to see how well they kept their traditions and discipline. While a lot of our (Chinese) culture, customs and spirit kind of died with our emperors...
Probably the most oriental styled piece I've done, loving it.
1. The arrow is on this side of bow for Asian archery, on the other side for Western archery.
2. The chest protector is on the other side for Japanese kyudo, but on this side for all other archery I've seen.
3. The drawing length of Asian archery is longer than that of modern Western archery.
4.Hand position of drawing hand, I really don't know how this works.
5. Feel free to point out my mistakes, just.. pls don't point out nonexistent errors based on your knowledge of Western archery
