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.

Seasonal Split

A sequence of four trees representing the seasons: a bare oak for Autumn; a snow-covered evergreen for Winter; a blossoming Sakura for Spring; and a lush oak for summer.

I’m not entirely pleased with how this one turned out. Maybe more shading could help it? It’s kind of aggressively busy, too. Perhaps simplifying the design is in order.

Regardless of my reservations, I have added this to Redbubble! https://www.redbubble.com/people/sada-tainment/works/39407376-seasonal-split?asc=u

Design Sketches: Hearts, Trees, Speaker

new doc 2019-05-06 11.58.36_1.jpg

Did some graphic design work today. I revised the tree idea I’d had before, expanded upon the old speaker/sound design I’d thrown together to imitate a graffiti style, and did a couple designs revolving around hearts.

There’s still some fine-tuning that I need to do, but I think these’ll look nice once complete.

Tree Sketches 4/22

I sketched some trees. I’m plotting a design based on the seasons and trees, but I’m not entirely sure where I’m going with it yet. Featured are evergreen, sakura, oak I guess, baobab, and a bare also-an-oak I guess?
