I bow down to your greatness sir. Not just in your previous work (which was wonderful as well) but in this as well. I love the combination of steam punk and Japanese/geisha fashion. Being 1/4 Japanese I LOVE this. And the gritty steam punk mixed with the elegance of the Victorian era (which I also adore) is exquisite! I am truly awed by your work and hope I can draw anywhere near your level, (even though right now mine would barely hold a candle against your artwork.
As for the tea painting is there a specific way you do this. A certain type of tea; do you buy it in normal stores and supermarkets or is there a specific tea made for this purpose? I really do like it!
