The Confucian Fangirl!

Yesterday, someone remarked that he knows of a Confucian Fangirl. Was inspired to draw this today after spending the whole day studying Confucian texts. Wanted to give her a pony tail, but I can’t seem to get draw it right.

The Chinese words in calligraphy style were painfully traced using the digital tablet. Not easy, but it’s amazing what a digital tablet with pressure sensitivity can do.

If you’re wondering what the Chinese words mean, it says: “Ever since mankind came into this world, there has never been one greater than Confucius.” (Mencius 2A2)

Do let me know what you think. It’s the first time I’m drawing my characters this way.
