Newest Deviations




...with hand drawn illustrations.
100 books in total, 50 are done, another 50 to go.

Publisher is going to use these books for some kind of campaign, but
I'm not sure which shop these will be sent to.

(pako, a character designer of UN-GO, is my friend and
he wrote recommendation comment and illustration for
wraparound band on my comic book.
He also contributed nice illustration inside the book, as a guest artist.
Thank you pako san!)

I use mostly CS6 + Comic Studio pro.

I love dark and mysterious world. :-)

I've been in Connecticut USA when I was a kid, and
though I came back to Japan long time ago
I still remember some easy English.

I'm not used to here yet,
I'm sorry if I did anything odd. XD

9th Story Nein, Chapter 3: World Connected by Food led me here. Nice work right there. I must say that the said publication is a neat retelling of the story told by the song that was composed by Sound Horizon. It illustrates the struggles of a woman who lives in a world governed by the principles of Social Darwinism and Machiavellian-ism, where only the strong survive and the ends justify the means, explaining the need for people to defraud, betray, and harm each other in order to make the most out of life. In your interpretation of said story, some causes of fright resulted from some Lovecraftian-looking creature which reminds me of a similar concept from the Sega Genesis game Contra: Hard Corps, a pile of corpses behind a mural, illustrating the world's hypocrisy, and a severed head for display in a shop. I mean, those elements fully described what you have illustrated in the story as a "beautiful, yet sickening world". The ending of the story that you have illustrated was also a nice touch, where you have shown the predatory flow of living things, describing humanity as the top of the food chain, which in turn was reversed with the strengths of the creatures behind humanity, illustrating what biology calls a symbiotic nature. I also like how you connected the story told in the song Rinne no Sunadokei to what you have interpreted, in order to put the supposed tragedy of the protagonist, which was yet to be undone near the end, into perspective. With that said, I have highly appreciated your contribution to the illustrated collaboration between Sound Horizon and Kadokawa. I therefore give you a kudos for that.
