I wanted to try drawing on ATC/ACEO paper, but never quite thought of what to do with it other than making a playing card deck or a trading card game, so I finally thought of what I can do – draw mythical beasts with the Japanese brush pen in sumi-e style! Still need to practice as I’m not good at drawing samurai with it yet.
These are some of the cards I drew over the past couple of days:
This is a Nue, a chimeric beast from Japanese folklore that creates storms and bringer of bad luck.
This is the Fei-lian or Feng-bo, a celestial wind lord in Chinese folklore that creates storms.
This is a Tatsu or Ryuu, the 3-clawed Japanese Dragon using the Tidal Jewel to create tides.
I posted more mythological creatures on ACEO/ATC at my website: http://shinrinart.weebly.com/aceo.html
