A tiny 2″ tall sketch of a location from That Project.  It’s where one of the stories begins!

A first sketch from my and Kana’s new project called “City of Waves” (temporary title). I will be talking more about this in my next YouTube video.

This is just a sketch of a house - a part of the setting we are planning to slowly design. I wanted to make a space that is warn in the old-Japanese style but also has some modern elements. I painted this based on some photos I found on the Internet and some visits to museums showing Showa-era buildings around Tokyo.

Technical details: 

  • Paper: Muse F4-HOMO drawing block
  • Lines: Mitsu-Bishi Hi UNI 3B pencil
  • Colors: Holbein watercolors set based on Hayao Miyazaki’s

I wanted to try a new watercolour sketchbook I bought recently for my plein-air painting. I did a simple sketch this time with my lightweight Holbein set in a style similar to concept-art works found in Studio Ghibli art-books.

 I painted this based on a photo of a tea house located in a Japanese garden belonging to a hotel located near my house (It’s a shame I can not paint there).  You can see the painting process in the making-of video but to make things short I did not like how the paper worked with the watercolours really much. In the end to “save” the picture I decided to use ink on top of the watercolours to give it a little bit of depth.

Technical stuff:  

  • Medium:  Canson Montval WATERCOLOUR F2 sketchbook
  • Sketch: Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni pencil grade HB & 2B
  • Line: COPIC Multiliner SP 0.5mm
  • Colours: my main 48 colour Holbein set

外で水彩を描くために買ったスケッチブックを試したくて、シンプルな絵を描いてみました。コンパクトな12色のホルベイン水彩セットと2B鉛筆を使って、スタジオジブリのアートブックにあるスケッチのスタイルを目指しました。 以前撮った写真を参考にして、近所の日本庭園にある古い茶屋を描いてみました(ホテルの敷地内にある庭園なので、その場では描くのはやめました)。 最終的にキャンソンのスケッチブックの紙が水彩と相性があまりよくなくて、完成した着色はフラットになってしまっておもしろくなかったです。なので、奥行感を作るためにインクの線を足してみました。
