$ python -V
Python 2.6.4
$ python -c "import Image; print Image.VERSION"
1.1.6
$ cat draw_text.py
# encoding:utf-8

from PIL import Image
import ImageDraw
import ImageFont

img = Image.new("RGBA",(300, 50), (0, 0, 0, 0))
draw = ImageDraw.Draw(img)

FONT = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/arial.ttf"

arial = ImageFont.truetype(FONT, 32)
text = u"proba test ¾æèð¹"
print repr(text)
draw.text((20,8), text, font=arial, fill="red")
img.save("tmp.png")
$ python draw_text.py
u'proba test \xbe\xe6\xe8\xf0\xb9'

The image looks as expected.
