    Default Vector Painting with Xara

    Ok, its not really painting, rather I am drawing shapes, applying a gradation of colors, applying transparency and feathering and stacking this color shape layered on top of others. It achieves a painterly style, though I am not quite adept at it yet, but have some grasp of the technique.

    I have the needs for a cover illustration for my next upcoming patronage project for Kaidan - Obake: Bestiary of Kaidan (a monster book). My plan is to have a kitsune (fox demon on the left side), a bakeneko (demon cat) in the center bottom), a yurei ghost woman (at center top), and this image which is an Ao Nyobo (split mouthed woman; accursed) at the right side of the illustration.

    I may yet commission someone to do this right, but I wanted to experiment. I used a photo of a geisha for reference.
