2018 年 10 月 23 日 Comments off

Here is the rest of the Q&A
from the previous post.

11)How many original characters
do you have for your manga?
A lot. Litelary, a lot.
Recently I’ve started drawing more of fan-art charaters, too.

 

12)Draw an illustration from top-view.
Top-view! Here is my rough illustration.
Gosh, I’m sure I’d like to change it later.

 

13)How are you learning how to draw?
Hmmm, reading books, Googling how to
and asking friends.

 

14)List up the hair styles you often draw.
Buzz-cut or flat top short hair.
I hardly draw long hair, I think.

 

15)Can you use”Copic” coloring pen?
Yes, I can. Well, I was able to once LOL.
When I was a college student,
I drew cars and other still objects
using that marker.
I don’t think I can draw the same thing now!

 

16)Which part of body
you’re having hard time to draw?
Foot, definitely.
I love drawing it but never satisfied.

 

17)List up the pen you use often
(digital or analogue)

It’s G-pen. I use G-pen and Maru-pen often.

 

18)Draw a smily face.
SMILE!

 

19)Which one do you often draw,
your original characters or
fan-art characters?
Original characters, but recently
I’ve started thinking to draw more
fan-art characters, too, to expolore
my creativity.

 

20)About your art, what would you
like to do in the future?
Well, a bit seriouly though,
now I’d like to focus on just
keeping on drawing as a craftman.
Since lots of things settled down finally
(regarding my life), now I just simply
would like to enjoy what I can do.
I’m sure it will change in the future though.

 

THAT’S ALL!!!

ANSWERING QUESTIONS (1)

2018 年 10 月 19 日 Comments off

ARTISTS DO ANSWER
QUESTIONS AS THE AMOUNT
OF “LIKES”

I saw this tweet
the day before yesterday.

I’ve already answer
to the questions in Japanese.

Here is the English version
of that.

 

1) When did you start drawing?
Since when I was a kid.
I made a 4 panels manga book
at age 5 or 6.
It’s a serial manga.
The total amount was quite a lot.
I really take a cue from that
constant hard work!

 

2) From which part of a body do you start
drawing?
From head. Roughly draw a head, then go
to body, then start drawing details.
Always eyes, especially pulils, are the last.

 

3) Which one do you draw often, male or female?
Well, due to the orientation of my manga,
male, guys, boys. Here is my rare drawing of a girl
in my gay manga!

4) Which do you prefer, digital or analogue.
Digital, but of course, I used to draw manga
in the old school way.
I’ve started using computer in 90s. It’s because
the manpower was (and still is) always limited
in the field of gay manga. I had to do everything
by myself. Thinking about the efficiency, that
was the solution for me.

 

5) What color do you use often?
Orange. I know! I use that color often!

6) Draw a side face of your character.
Here! OMG, I just unconcsiously drew
an “oyaji” guy!

7) Have you made any items besides drawing?
Of course! Here are the links to my
original design items!
“Ichikawa Original Ema”
https://ichikawado.booth.pm/items/513772
“Ichikawa Original T-shirt”
“Ichikawa Original Police Officer T-shirt”

 

8) Motif you do often draw
Cock!

 

9) Draw an illustration from the low angle view.
OMG. I emphasized the perspective.

10) Who is your favorite artists?
So many!!!!!
Well, this continues!

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*
