Udeghe Family by charcoalfeather Udeghe Family by charcoalfeather
This is just basically a tribute to Pavlishin's amazing Tales of the Amur, which I had the fortune to take out last month, since it was at my university's library. Who would've known? But then again, almost everything I've ever wanted to find can be found at the school library, which is awesome. Anyways, I did not create this picture with a particular story in mind, so feel free to tell me what you think is happening (if anything is happening). These two are Udeghe/Udege/Udihe people, a Tungusic group found in Far-Eastern Siberia, Russia.

References and Stock:
Partially based on this wikicommons vintage photo: [link](Nanai)_family.jpg and referenced some of the Udeghe patterns from Pavlishin's work: [link]
Canvas texture (which is supposed to represent the fish scales that their clothes are made of): [link]
Paper texture: [link]
Texture used on the table: [link]

Media Used:
Moleskine notebook, 0.1 and 0.6 Micron Pigment Liner, Photoshop CS6.

OOh wow! This is amazing! I could see that you worked really hard on this!
Absolutely love the every details you've worked on and their costume details and the surrounding. I feel totally blind by amazement! :heart:

Haha, thanks. I actually think this isn't as good as it would've been if I had done it entirely traditionally, because the circle in the back kind of looks artificial compared to everything else, lol.

Really nice work. I love the colours you've used.

University libraries are amazing. I used to spend hours in the stacks just reading random books.

Thanks!

Haha, I know what you mean. I wish I could do that, if I had the time. There's also the fact that in my university library (the main one), books aren't sorted by language, but by topic, so if you go into the Siberian section, there are many books in Russian that I can't read, and it takes forever to find languages that I can read.
