Silk Puppet


















The lights dimmed as the audience finished their round of applause. The velvet curtains parted, revealing a colossal stage with a single spotlight shining down on one solitary figure. The performer stood deathly still with a long cloak down to her barefeet, not a single muscle moving. Then, with one sweeping motion, she elegantly lifted away the cloak, revealing a body of silk.

Probably the weirdest thing I've drawn in awhile. This is just an idea for my Interesting Character project. Most of her body is made of silk cloth. Usually she walks around with a long cloak on to cover up herself. Yes, this really was inspired by a real person I saw on a street...
