Momotaro by azurecorsair Momotaro by azurecorsair
Read Momotaro's tale and loved it :D

So this took me hours, and the worst is that I had to draw the pheasant twice
I was so dumb that I overwrite the pheasant I just finished with the monkey (I drew everything separately) and what make it worse, at that time the monkey was nothing but a lousy sketch and the pheasant was a fully finished drawing, I practically cried lol it took several hours to redraw the pheasant but the second one's much better so it worth every second :D :D

If you notice the kanji writings on everyone's kimonos, it's Shouten for the pheasant, means focus, Chuujitsu for the dog, means loyalty (it's unseen there lol), and monkey has Chie, means wisdom :D googled those words :D Was to give the monkey a naginata but minutes after I decided to give him a fan, which I believe is more suitable to the word wisdom :)

Okay I talked too much lol please full-view for details :D C&Cs are much appreciated :D

Oooohhh, very pretty! I love that story!

Seriously, you did a lovely job with this! I love the stylization with the designs and the colors here; it has a graphic, contemporary Asian twist to it. There are a lot of bright colors here and there are a lot of elements, but they work together, in my opinion.

I feel that the different elements were balanced out so that while the peach and Japanese flag symbol stand out a lot, they don't take away from the characters below it. Momotaro himself stands out from the other animals due to his brighter colors, so everything gets attention without getting lost in something else.

Momotaro was the fist story my Japanese room mate told me when we first started college! I've loved those kinds of myths ever since :)

At first impression I got dazzled by the bold and clean colours that compliments the piece so well, but now that I've had a second look, I am definitly favouring the character concepts for their personalities and many details. There is so much time and thought put into this, but it was definitly very much worth the effort. Picture looks amazing! :)

This is epic! And I love 桃太郎! Did you just decide to add their weapons or did you read a different version of 桃太郎 in which they actually had weapons?

I absolutely loved Momotarou's tale. It was a thrilling read :D You did an excellent job portraying them. Especially our lil' tough dude, Momotarou. ^ ^ I love the Japanese-orient feel of the art style of this picture.
