Hoa Mai by HoukouSakura Hoa Mai by HoukouSakura
A drawing I was doing for New Years. To late to be Western New Year, but not quite Lunar New Year... I was trying to draw New Years with my namesake - Mai, or Hoa Mai, "Ochna integerrima" - incorporated. It's a yellow flower that blooms at New Year.
Tigers are hard to draw in ink! I'm working on a coloured version of this, so watch this space! ;P
Does anyone want me to upload a more polished version of this lineart for use?

Edit: My entry for #Vietnam-Community's Spring Lover Contest. I'm in the middle of the beautiful coloured version, but I found out the deadline is today... Eeep! 31/01/10
Edit Again: Apparently the deadline was yesterday... :tears:
Am I too late?!
Last Edit Guys: Sorry Sorry for the edits. >___< but... I MADE IT! YAY! Not like I'm gonna win, but I made the entry! And now my art is among all the amazing ones by the big big DeviantArters. *Happy Dance*

Inking practice! My camera made this awesome bad quality parchment looking colour, and for once, I loved it.
My attempt at the Chinese symbols for Prosperity fails...
Hope you like it, comment!
