Happy Holidays everyone! ^_^ This is an illustration I recently finished of my Ronin Yoshino characters. I drew this by hand with non-photo blue pencil, manga pens and colored with Copic markers.
Yoshino and her companions are celebrating the holiday season!
Yoshino (red haired character) is eating osechi – a special bento box meal served on New Years. Akatsuki (girl in blue kimono) is serving the osechi. Kagekiri (guy dressed in white) is drinking o-toso – special sake “rice wine”. Inori (guy with fox tail) is wearing Shishi-Mai outfit “Japanese lion dance” performed during the New Year. I drew the nekomata “two-tailed cat” playing with the bonsai pine ornaments. The alter has a kagami-mochi which is a rice ball offering wishing good luck in the New Year.
