I had a lot of fun making this! This is a piece inspired by the mythical creature, the Kitsune. In many folklore, Kitsune are known to disguise as a pretty lady to try to either trick others or to repay a favour to someone by being a loyal companion to list some examples.
The piece I made used washi tape, stickers, gold paint, watercolours, tea stained paper and random pieces of patterned paper. I’m pretty happy with the results. I may someday do a digital version of this piece…
This week’s illustration is of an idea I previously mentioned in a post: Yokai Kokeshi Dolls! Incase you didn’t know, Yokai are Japanese folklore spirits, monsters and demons. Some are known for being tricksters, like the kitsune (fox) being able to shapeshift into a human! The characters (from left to right) are a Kitsune (a fox that can have up to 9 tails depending on their age), a Kappa (water dwelling monster that likes to eat cucumbers), a Tanuki (can also shapeshift) and a Nekomata (a cat known for having two tails).
This week’s illustration is a silly idea I got when I was heading home from Rome. I imagined illustrating the starters of Pokemon Sun and Moon with silly expressions. The characters (from left to right) include a disgruntled looking Decidueye, a tail nomming Incineroar and a disgraceful Primarina! This design is available to purchase on my etsy: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/572384853/3-goofy-alolan-pokemon-starters (I will also be selling these at the next convention sometime in the future!)
Happy Halloween my dear followers! Here is a Halloween themed moth for you all!
This week’s illustration is of Sakura from the manga series Cardcaptor Sakura in the style of children’s book character, Miffy! This idea came to be when I wanted to draw Sakura in a cute style and thought, “Wouldn’t it be adorable if I drew the protagonist like Miffy?” So I did.
Today’s piece is of Edea from Bravely Default as a Red Mage (I swear this wasn’t made to also celebrate BD’s 5th birthday, I made this not knowing!) Not hugely happy how this came out due to the drawing looking more lively than the final piece but I still had fun making this!
Today’s illustration is a special one, celebrating a favorite and special video game close to my heart: Bravely Default! I drew one of the protagonist’s holding a cake to celebrate! I think this may be my last contribution to Inktober since I am running out of ideas. The main reason is having no time to focus on my main work and stressing all day about coming up with drawing ideas for Inktober.
Today’s Inktober illustration is a cat loaf of a character I made inspired by lucky cats!
