WIP: Shinto Shrine with Shih Tzus

A work in progress illustration done in pen and pencil, scanned in using the CamScanner phone app; a shinto shrine courtyard with two Japanese-style buildings on the left, a large sakura tree in the center with a torii gate set before it, and a large Japanese-style gate on the right with a komainu statue visible beyond it. A dense forest with green-leaved trees can be seen beyond the wall in the back. Two anthropomorphized Shih Tzu dogs are walking up the path leading from the gate to the buildings, playing with a ring. A third Shih Tzu stands before the building, waiting for them.

There’s a number of things I’d change to shore this piece up: the composition itself is a little weak and some positions need tweaking, the gate’s roof flummoxed me wholly, and it’s missing elements that I either forgot about or passed on, considering the scale I was working with and my shaky hands.

I have a Ko-fi:: https://ko-fi.com/sadayoshientertainment :: and a Redbubble for if you want my non-fanart on your stuff:: https://redbubble.com/people/sada-tainment
This isn’t on my Redbubble yet, because I still need to finish it, but there’s other things.

Kabuki Kitsune

A digital remastering of two traditional drawings featuring my original character, Murakami Momoko, a kitsune samurai, performing a kabuki pose. She is holding her peach blossom-themed spear vertically next to her and is wearing samurai armor with a blue top and a red bottom. She has a fox head and legs, furry hands, and three long tails curling behind her. She is standing on one leg with one hand outstretched. Across from her is a landscape scene with a stylized sakura tree and a rock. Grassy ground beneath both the landscape and Momoko is connected with a thin, looping strip of color.

I’ve pretty much finished with this, methinks. All that’d be left would be shading, but shading is hard and I am tired and I have been looking at this for a long time.

I’ve added this piece to my Redbubble – https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/103187263, if you’d like her to be on your stuff and things. Or you can take a look at my Ko-fi – https://ko-fi.com/sadayoshientertainment, if you wish.

Hut on the Beach – Rough, Ink and Pencil

I drew a whole landscape with ink and colored pencil, imitating traditional Japanese art. This fisherman’s hut on a beach is the initial scene of my game that I’m totally going to finish one day definitely.

A wood hut with a thatched roof sits on the edge of a beach; trees begin appearing farther to the right up the hill past the hut. A wood pier extends out from the beach into the choppy ocean. In the background, silhouettes of other islands can be seen with the vague shape of a mountain further beyond it.

WIP: Kabuki Kitsune

A drawing in traditional media of my original character, a Kitsune Samurai named Murakami Momoko; she is partially transformed into her fox form, with fox legs, furred hands, and a fox head. She is performing a Kabuki theater pose with her peach blossom-themed spear and wearing blue, black, and red armor.

A WIP of sorts, being that it was done with traditional media and therefore lacks stabilization for my congenital hand tremors.

Kitsune Naptime

I drew a two-tailed kitsune/fox napping in a bed of grass and flowers.

It’s a little rough, being done with pencil and pen. A bit of a given, really, considering the poor quality of my tools and my congenital hand tremors.

Tales of Momoko: Spear, Animations

A sketch page featuring a number of conceptual spear heads, how Momoko might dodge in game, and different spear combat styles that might be used

I’ve been doing some conceptualizing for the game that I’m definitely going to finish some time don’t worry about it. I’ve just about got the spear to look the way I want; it probably needs a few tweaks, but I’ll cross that bridge when it comes. I also did some sketches of my OC, Momoko, to parse how she’ll move about in game a little bit.

Tales of Momoko: Shielding, UI Notes

This sketch page has more notes for my game along with a decent sketch of my OC, Momoko the kitsune samurai. The UI is coming along, conceptually, so I’ve turned to gameplay now: specifically, defending.

My research indicates that the Japanese didn’t “wield” shields in the European sense; rather, they “wore” or carried and deployed them, which meant their hands were free for weapons that required two hands.

Tales of Momoko: Spear, Name

Some more character design work on my new original character, Momoko the kitsune Samurai. This sketch page has got a bit of everything: an armored outfit for her that I’ll need to refine, some spear concepts that are coming along, a simplified look for easier animating, and some notes on her name.

From what I, a half-Japanese man with only 2nd- and 3rd-hand knowledge of Japanese and Japanese culture, have researched: when kanji is used as part of a name or other word, it can generally be pronounced however you want it to be pronounced? I might be way off.

Tales of Momoko: Peach-fox

peach-fox.jpg

Here’s some more art of Momoko, my kitsune Samurai, cutting a peach with a spear. I did this in traditional media with pen and colored pencil. I did forget her gotdang fox tails, but that’s something easy to fix when I clean this digitally.

Character Design: Momoko

momoko concept page.jpg

A character design sketch page of a new character for a thing I’m working on. Momoko is a Samurai kitsune, which is why I’ve been drawing foxes so much recently. This is the first time I’ve ever drawn her, so I’m still working on what she looks like.

I’ve got to hand it to furries, though; they’ve got the proportions down pat.
