Ok, I think I got an idea going! I decided I’ll have Ronin Yoshino: Gaiden (side story) chapter taking place at a Matsuri (festival). However, like everything else in my manga (comic book) series, I like to do my own spin! I was inspired by the Obon Matsuri (youtube.com/watch?v=I90wkctyui8), re-reading some of my favorite books on Japanese folklore and watching some anime ^_^
Here’s the sketch I just finished inking in! I messed up on the lanterns a bit, I’ll have to fix that… This might be the cover art for my new manga chapter special. No title yet. Story synopsis coming soon.
Yoshino (foreground) and a new character (background); a kitsune (fox spirit) with a neko-mata (two-tailed cat spirit) and chōchin-obake (paper lantern ghost) at a matsuri.
