Creative Studies class today will most probably be character designs. Fun! For this comic assignment, I'm making a cyberpunk version of the Mahsuri legend. In case you're wondering what Mahsuri is all about, it's a story about the girl with unearthly beauty (hmm, maybe not unearthly but from my research, she's pretty damn cute) and almost every men in her village wants to marry her. But she married the village head's son.
However, her husband travels alot since he's a travelling merchant and Mahsuri often being left alone back home. Another traveling merchant from another island came to her village one day and they became good friends due to their interest on poety. Soon, a jealous woman accused Mahsuri of adultery. Despite her pleads of innocence, the village head takes no heed and proceed to execute her, her husband doesn't believe her and agreed that she should be executed.
They stab her with a Kris, and white blood gushing out from her; a proof of her innocence. Before she died, she utters a curse that Langkawi (The origin of this story) will not prosper for 7 generations.
And yep, it did. Only few years back, Langkawi started to rise up again.
