Challenge: Japanese Monsters & legends – Day 1 Momotaro

14 May

My friend and great illustrator Mireia came up with a new challenge about drawing Japanese monsters & legends. The rules are such simple as you have to draw the listed monsters/legends one each day during 30 days. (weekends free)

As I wanted to improve my drawings skills I accepted the challenge Ò u Ó let’s see if I’m strong enough and I can keep it jejeje

First day is Momotaro day! \ º D º / and here you have my illustration

Momotaro (桃太郎) legend – read it here –

For no reason I wanted to dress him with actual clothes, and he has that face because he’s gonna tell to the Onis (devils) “ooi!! stop being so evil!!” the monkey is just copying him ¬ u ¬ !!

I hope you like it, and you’ll find another monster tomorrow º D º !! thanks Mireia for that challenge, and you readers, remember to check her blog if you want to see amazing drawings º 0 º !!
