Kabuto: Silence by Yakushi--Kabuto Kabuto: Silence by Yakushi--Kabuto
Strange, the places you end up while on a mission...


I recently took a Japanese art history class and was very impressed with some of the snowy scenes depicted in the wood block prints we studied. Thought I'd try something in similar style.
With Kabuto-san of course.

Enjoy!

"The snow is so frightening. So silent, so still, and yet... so beautiful to the point which frightens me so."
"the pure white color of silence, gentleness, and kindness."
so what do you think of these lines? cool or what?

This looks like it was taken straight out of one of my Edo culture books. Seriously, and I minored in Asian studies.

REALLY well done!

i'd like to think he did the same thing with the orphanage he grew up in - would sort of watch over it on snowy nights like that...

I like this. And of course, I love the shading, even the delicate shading on the snow on the branches. it makes me very cold though, seeing Kabuto with a cap of snow on his bare head. The sky looks like you used water color. Or did you use the pencil that you have to use water with? [Had no idea how many pencils there were until I went looking for a friend.]

Before I read your commentary, I thought that Kabuto was outside his old orphanage and it made me sad for a moment. Lovely work, though. There's a calm, frozen serenity about it that I just like. Kabuto suits a Winter's day. ^_^
