Passing a busy land

Floating on a cloud past a busy land

Somehow the story continues so that the guy has now hitched a ride on a drifting cloud. Hikaru is leading a marching band. This drawing is a bit more random since the focus was to illustrate particular keywords from the Inktober 2016 initiative by the awesome Jake Parker: mrjakeparker.com/inktober

The Inktober 2016 words were:
Fast, noisy, collect, hungry, sad, hidden, lost, rock, broken, jump, transport, worried, scared, tree, relax, wet, battle, escape, flight, squeeze, big, little, slow, one dozen, tired, box, creepy, burn, surprise, wreck, friend.

Afternoon in Kyoto

going toast

'Afternoon in Kyoto'

 

I left the inking like this for now. Maybe in the future I can colour it. It’s a fun combination of sketching, detailed drawing and cartoon illustration. I love the complexity of the scene with all the telephone and electricity lines. I drew this from a photograph I took myself. It was taken from a bridge of what is probably quite an ordinary street in Kyoto. The perspective was a fun drawing work-out!
