Vector Japonisme

Here it is, another shot at Japonisme: some geisha or courtesan giving you attitude for no apparent reason.

This piece was sketched in Photoshop but cleaned up in Illustrator. I've been trying to re-create the ukiyo-e (floating world) style faithfully but at the same time I want to explore facial and corporal expressions that are sometimes hard to achieve in a style with limited perspective and choice of angles. I wonder if anyone has ever done an animation with a similar look...
