SW10: Mononoke in Spring by hakumo SW10: Mononoke in Spring by hakumo
I am, yet again, an elf for :iconsantas-workshop:

:bulletwhite: Secret Santa #3, OC Haru for *LethalPepsi :bulletwhite:

He yes he is so pretty oAo! i just assumed his name means spring :XD: 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 :love: 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 ^_^


pattern from ~gimei
texture from ~akinna-stock [link]


*i'm..very speechless...oAo t-thank you =Topicality and ^Nyiana-Sama for the DD! thank you all of your wonderful comments :happycry:*

An extremely beautiful traditional Japanese style drawing. With bright colors and several astonishing details, SW10: Mononoke in Spring by *hakumo gives a wonderful impression of Spring. ( Suggested by Topicality and Featured by Nyiana-sama )

OMFG Someone else watches that series! I am so happy! And you captured the striking art style of "Mononoke" so beautifully!

The Medicine Seller would fit right in here. ^_^

I think it is underrated, well, because of the theme and story of course. But it is without a doubt beautiful and mesmerizing and fresh and, dark yet have that hint of happy ending? I guess xD I love it! :heart:

DEM EYES! SO PRETTY! And may I know the lineart settings you used here? It's so soft yet hard at the same time LOL! I dunno how to describe it xD And the colours *q* You matched it perfectly!

hakumo Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2012
sorry for the late reply. I believe I was in SAI for the lineart, just the usual pen setting, did not change much. If photoshop, the brush tool at 100% hardness would work fine too. Thank you for the generous compliment :blushes:

OMG I LOVE Mononoke! You know in the train arc after the guy is thrown off? I saw a flash of color and after twenty minutes of attempting to press the stop button at just the right moment I discovered that if you pause it just right~ you can see his body on the wall.

Mononoke IS pretty awesome. The Bakeneko arc from Ayakashi was also my favorite. :)

This style inspires me. These colours are well done and besides, they have this original Japanese atmosphere. I cannot say, that spring is my favourite season, but simply this drawing makes me feel of japanese young girls, who are meeting the spring from blooming sakura trees in kimono. (I know, my comment is flashy, but i just have a lot of emotions in this moment)
