A picture I drew for my art class. There's a concept: The cracks are actually tiny, tiny words (the words to the Star Spangled Banner, in Japanese) and the Statue of Liberty is in each eye.

I was just a little annoyed by the people who obsess over the Japanese culture. Y'know, the ones that say random Japanese words like "kawaii", and praise Pocky like a God. It kind of makes me feel embarrased to be Japanese :P

I don't have a really ood reason for choosing Hamasaki Ayumi. She's just really popular, and I've heard my mom complain about how 'western' she is, with her morals and such. I don't really know anything else about her, but I couldn't think of who else to draw XD

This one's moderately big: 22"x28"

luckylace222Tiny Japanese words? Then...this must be a huge picture or extremely extremely small words! Well done! I like the concept of a cracked face. It almost seems like it might shed off and show an ugly gruesome much more different one that others have not seen before.

You are Japanese! I did not know that! Were you born in Japan? ;>>> You have amazing talent!

hvite_devilWow. What an interesting idea. With the words crossing her face and the Statue of Liberty. You've done the eyes so nicely! They look so alive and soft. The shading is excellent as well. Everything in this picture looks kinda soft. Haha.

I know what you mean. Japan-maniacs are kinda silly. I used to be one a few years back. ugh, lol.

Anyway, *favs*!
