Pretty women with knives? But really, with all those layers, you could hide a lot of dangerous stuff in a kimono.

Painting the faces. I think maybe I'll extend the canvas.

Looking excellent, and maybe a bigger canvas would look good but I think you have a good composition now.

The vase is a placeholder. Maybe I'll put in another lady. Everything is on one layer now which means less flexibility, but I think it's easier this way.

This background is going to give me a nightmare. Indoor scenes are so difficult because of all the straight lines, ha.

Changed the color, the background, went with something nice and red. Added some detail in the faces.

A slightly bigger canvas and a change in the kimono of the lady on the right.

2nd concept. I wanted to try painting something with a more complicated bg, since I never do. It suits the theme better anyway.

Going back to the original concept after this. I can't decide D:

Both are nice paintings. :thumbsup:
The secrete Kimono assassin may fits the theme better.
Emphasize the hidden dagger and her expression in the image.
Her intension isn't so obvious. Unless you intended it that way:)

A view of the face. Aha, back to the original, I guess.

Hi Lappisch.

Very nice painting touch, I like the atmosphere.
If you would like to do a more complicated background you can have that scene append on a balcony or with the sliding wall open on a larger city.???

This is so soft and lovely. I love your warm palette and the intricate patterns on the wall behind them. Though I must say, I really liked the faraway, detached look the front figure had in your previous version. May I ask why you changed it?

Really wonderful work so far! I'm very much enjoying watching this one develop.

I'm not sure I like the vase and stuff, will find reference later. Just, it's like dragging my feet big time.

deftsword: That's a really awesome idea. (WISH I HAD THOUGHT OF IT SOONER) I think I'd like to do that. The problem though, is that everything is on one layer so that will take a lot of prancing around. I'm not sure, the original idea was to have something quaint and some danger disguised there, but actually it turned out kind of boring, aheh.

apumia: I didn't follow the garb of traditional japanese geisha very well-at all-and it's likely that these ladies aren't dressing as the high-class entertainers that actual 'geisha' denotes.

Meris: I changed her face because I thought she looked like she was in a stupor actually and a little TOO detached ^_^;;

Gah, it looks so peaceful compared to all the other submissions. But I think I'm done. Enough is enough at some point, you know?

These three ladies are dressing up for a night out walking the streets with some high profile guys. So this is like the suit up before the mission. Make of it what you will.
