Chow # 210 'Yuki Onna - The Snow Spirit'

Got my finger out and finished a Chow submission - for once. It's a 1 day job, and it shows - could definitely do with some polish, but I am reasonably happy with it, and it was fun to paint.

Influence Map

These last few days I have seen quite a few cool artists post this thing, so I thought I'd give it a go.

I don't want to spend time/space trying to explain each of my choices, except to say that they have all made a profound impression on me, at one time or another, and some still do to this day.

I ended up choosing only artists, and not all kinds of inspirational sources, like the text encourages to do; I simply could not limit my choices, which is typically me. I might post a 'Inspiration map' with with all the remaining elements sometime =)
I also ended up not really following the guidelines for pic size/number - again because I simply could not limit my choices, and still I feel like I could continue to pile it on. Damn there are so many incredible artists out there...

Thanks to for the cool idea.
