As much as I would love to show you guys my Shibuya recreation drawing. You’ll just have to wait until I finish the first chapter to see it. This will be¬†the double spread of pages 19-20. This is the setting where the main story will play out. Many events, fights, and characters will appear and happen at. This took a total of three days to complete. Stay tuned for more updates.

Thoth & the Tiger Drawing

This weekend was very good in the terms of drawing new posters. I wasn’t planning on drawing this weekend but I guess that all changed. Here is the 7th poster, Thoth and the Tiger.
I got my influence for this poster from the Japanese folktale of Raijin. Raijin is a creature who comes down from the sky in a bolt of lightning, he’s usually depicted as a demon spirit but I made him into a Tiger.
The bird in the lower left-hand corner is Thoth. Thoth is a mix between the Japanese Crane and the Egyptian Ibis. The Crane is usually referred to longevity, and the Ibis is known for its wisdom and knowledge so I just joined those two together to create Thoth.
