Silly Band – Classical Asian cartoons

Haha, I pick five classical asian cartoons, use pen tool to trace them to be silly bands. I m sure that most of the asian who around 18 to 40 would know those character.

From left to right, the first one is Prince Mackaroo, Bomberman Jetters, Anpanman, Doraemon and Chibi Maruko-chan. In Mackaroo, Doraemon and Chibi Maruko-chan, the stories are around the normal lives in Japanese family, there are full of fun and comedy. And Bomberman Jetters and Anpanman are about they protect people and the earth, also full of fun.

Simple Characters

Black panther is the animal is wanna design this time, and i want it looks like a rice ball, fat and cute, has short legs and big tummy. Also, I want to add some cat’s element in it, like the peaceful face of cat, and their lazy movements. It is not an aggressive but peaceful panther. People wont feel scary to see it.

Artist A Day

Actually, there are so many different artworks in the Artist a day website I really liked. Those artworks made by different mixed media, photography or painting. And eventually, I picked an artwork made by Ronna Nemitz in Phoenix.

The work calls ”Diver”, it gives me very strong impression by its black and white color. The diving board is all black and the legs are white.It shows that in the diver’s world, they practice a lot and only left diving board and legs in their world.  And why there are only the legs left on the diving board? It seems that it is showing how hard of a diver’s practice is, they jump down by their legs into water a million times, and their legs works a lot and have a powerful muscle, if i can only pick one thing which replace the diver, the legs are the best choice.
