I love kinbaku, I really do. It's one of the things I don't get tired of drawing no matter how many times I do it haha. Every now and then I like to sketch a few poses and this time I really liked this one, so I decided to finish. I didn't want to make it explicit/sexual. I like it much better when it's just sensual, plus, I really appreciate non-sexual parts of the body like the legs and shoulder and I wanted to focus on them here.
Wanted a raw black & white look and was really influenced by Hiroaki Samura's art on the double pages of Blade of the Immortal. Samura is one of my favorite artists and inspiration! :3
Anyway, flowers. No matter how much I say I will never draw flowers again (because they take some time haha) I always end up drawing them. Lots of them. I have a love-hate relationship with flowers haha.
I'll do a series of flower inspired kinbaku pictures, this is the first: red spider lily or manjusaka.
