Taikoubou by Len
Taikoubou by Len


Okay...I've been thinking whether if there'll be anyone who'll believe that I drew this......Anyways...*transforms into a Nataku attitude*, heck care 'bout it and just shoot.<br />
<br />
I've been having the urge to draw something from this fantastic manga Houshin Engi by Fujisaki Ryu. BUT! Fujisaki's style of drawing is a somewhat 360 degrees difference from CLAMP's. It's simple and rough, like some kind of sketching style, and it gives a kind of 'hard feeling', unlike CLAMP's smooth and complicated one. Anyways, I'm still trying to explore a bit in this area. The very first time I started drawing manga pics, (which was about 5 years ago) I started off with a style similar to Fujisaki's, but I switched, a year and a half later, to CLAMP's (because I'm attracted to their complicated-ness). So when I reverted back to my very, very old style, it was a lot easier to handle. (But as to what's my true style, I'm still trying to figure it out...humans are proned to changes...heh heh.)<br />
<br />
Okay...back to the pic (but I'm more proned to changing subjects^^;) It's my first time drawing Taikoubou and he doesn't look very much like him...oh well......And as for the Chinese character ('lan' in Chinese, 'arashi' in jap) written on the pic, that's the nearest word (that sounds good ^_^) I can find for the pronunciation of the word 'Len'. Had a hard time putting those Chinese words on the pic with Photoshop and a bit of help from Paint, but it turned out quite nice.<br />
<br />
Pic was done by watercolours and was played around with Photoshop (heh heh! I'm getting familiar with this stuff...) Chinese Translation on pic: Year 2004 month 2 date 9, Len, Houshin Engi. (By the way, GRAB THAT MANGA!!!! IT HAS THE BEST PLOT EVER!!!!)<br />
<br />
(To Angel_Kairi: I'm still working on your request ^^. Don't worry about the style, I'll try and make it CLAMP-ish.)

Dark_ShadowY'know what? this REALLY confused me cuz I didn't know that the TV show, Soul Hunter, came from a manga until I looked up Taikoubou... But I'm still confused!!! >_< Is Sibuxang in the manga?
