Second participation for Obscure Fandom Week : Otoyomegatari (Bride Stories) by Kaoru Mori.
Also a slice of life type manga in central asia during the 20th century. It’s about Amir, 20 years old, who gets married with Karluk 12 years old, and their life in their village. If you know Victorian Romance Emma, a work by the same author, you’ll see how the atmosphere is also quite calm and nice. Also the art is amazing, very (very) detailed, it’s amazing how the author can ink all of this.
As for the drawing above, it killed my left hand. Since my main influence is this author, my style isn’t far from her. I wanted to do a fanart of her works since a long time so it was a good occasion. I can now understand all the suffering to do details like that, haha…
