THIS WEEK’S ONE HOUR DRAWING CHALLENGE, “LANTERN”

2018 年 10 月 16 日 Comments off

This week’s One Hour Drawing Challenge (beard ver.).

The subjects were,

tranguilty/lantern

Here is my drawing.

I post it here prior to the deadline.

So, I picked up the image of “lantern”.

Whenever I hear the word, “lantern”,
I can’t help but thinking about
“chinese lantern”.

I guess it’s because the Chinese movie
from 1991 directed by Zhang Yimou,
“Raise the Red Lantern (大紅灯篭高高掛)”
is in my mind.

ALSO, I love the guys
in the traditional Chinese male long robe,
Changshan (長袍, 長衫, Cheongsam
*traditonal Chinese male long robe).

SOOOOOOOO SEXY!

Especially the guys with
round eye glasses in that cloth.
Very 1920s-ish.

Some day, I would love to make
a manga about a guy in Changshan
having a GOOD TIME with men. *wink, wink*

THIS WEEK’S ONE HOUR DRAWING CHALLENGE

2018 年 10 月 10 日 Comments off

This week’s One Hour Drawing Challenge.

The subjects were,

“wolfman” or “mummy”.

I picked up “mummy”.

Here is my drawing.

Actually, it took way too long
to make the basic idea of this work.

Finally I packed up the idea around 11:30 PM.

Then, made a rough flow within next 30 minutes.

Then, it took exactly just one hour
to draw the entire page.

As I was not sure if I could say, “One Hour Drawing”,
I just posted the B/W version of this to my own twitter
without hashtag.

Here is my drawing
for this week’s
One Hour Drawing Challenge.

The subjects were,

“Death God”/”skull”.

The organizer of the challenge chose
those subjects because of Halloween season.

So, I tried to draw something
more Japanese/Japanesque image
rather than persuing Western.

This is an image of Rakugo-ka (らくごか、落語家)
performing the story of Death God (しにがみ、死神).

“Rakugo-ka” is the traditional stand-up
comedian/story teller in Japan
(well, they do their performance
“sitting” on the stage.
So, “stand-up” is not correct, I guess.
On the other hand, “Rakugo” is
the naun of their performance.
Therefor, a Rakugo-ka does Rakugo).

This Rakugo, the story of Death God,
the title is exactly, “Death God”
is the one written around 200 years ago.

It is innterestingly, based on one of
German stories collected by brothers of Grim,
“Godfather Death”(Der Gevatter Tod)
and an Italian opera by Federico Ricci,
“The Cobbler and the Fairy (Crispino e la comare)”.
