I am, yet again, an elf for
Secret Santa #3, OC Haru for *LethalPepsi
He yes he
is so pretty oAo! i just assumed his name means spring
I feel like I was lured to draw him, because I just finished watching Mononoke couple of weeks before working on this, so the hype is still there (Not Ghibli's Mononoke Hime, but モノノ怪).
I'm trying to capture the unusual feel but still make it appealing... worst part is figuring out how a junihitoe
(the kimono he's wearing) works OTL;;; there might be mistakes, so many references in my folder now haha.
Some advertising ahead.
That series, I LOVE IT!!! very much T-T even though I'm not into horror/mystery genre, but the characters, the style, the pattern, the cinematography agh
can't say enough!
If you know what I'm talking about, my favourite story arcs are Umibōzu and the initial Bakeneko from Ayakashi (that big first impression). If you feel like checking it out, it's a different kind of anime and might be not for everyone because of its 'mature' story, but it's really worth a try ^^
(or if you're into Takahiro Sakurai's voice LOL he sounds great)
With that all said, it's a fun experience. I hope you like it, and Mononoke if you see it ^_^
