black general by len-yan black general by len-yan
i haven't had much time for personal drawings lately. i've been slowly working on this piece for the last month or so. i am planning on making a colouring tutorial for it although i am not sure how well i'll be able to explain my process..

inspired by some of the decorative military uniforms; some references used

If you weren't so incredibly talented at this medium I would say you should become a shoe designer. Haha! There are SO many wild and gorgeous shoes in all your pictures. I would love to wear them if I could actually walk in them!
