Mid Autumn Festival!

Tonight it will be a perfect full moon.. Have you tried any mooncake? XD

If you are unfamiliar with the story behind (not that I am that familiar either) but it's roughly about a heavenly couple who was banished to earth.. The guy (Houyi) became a great archer and was given a holy pill to become a deity again after he managed to shoot down 9 suns before it was going to scorch the earth. He needed to fast for at least a year before consuming the pill so he kept it under his pillow.

One day, Chang'e (the lady) his banished-from-heaven-wife found it and consumed the pill without bearing any knowledge of what could happen and she began to levitate. It was too late for Houyi as when he got back, she was already flying towards the moon. In the end she was stuck there after she coughed out the pill

The moon rabbit is actually something like a chemist for the heavenly beings and he was told by Chang'e to make a pill in order to get her back to the earth. However, the rabbit I drew is making mochi (rice-cake) instead (it's the same rabbit but it's japanese version of the rabbit)
But the rabbit is also a recurring character, hahaha, check it out here

Here's Prof W's rough story about Mid Autumn Fest for your better understanding
and here's Prof W's explanation for the rabbit ;)

I obviously need more time with my drawing tablet hahaha. But yeah! Happy Mid Autumn everyone :)

Getting a job is like getting a girlfriend

Yes, this time's release is colored! I think it's still a bit messy. But hopefully my next releases will be better ^^
I'm trying to describe how similar getting a job and getting a girlfriend is although literally I haven't been gotten either in my life. T.T

The last looks familiar to you? This is the scene from another post
And don't forget to give a thumb for my fb page if you like my comics ;p.. Thanks

Ukiyo-e with digital attempt

Ukiyo-e is an ancient Japanese brush painting style where the artist will use a wood plank, draw on it with brush, carve it, apply color, put paper over it and then "print it".

I just attempted to draw a self portrait by using this style with brush on plain A4 white paper drawing book and with normal ink-brush and chinese ink.
After that I processed the edits with photoshop (mainly only coloring with brush, add texture, lighting effects and saturation). The black portions (the main sketch) are still handrawn.
Here goes nothing:

the small writing at the bottom left (wiriamu, jibun no eizou = William, Self Portrait)

Meanwhile, this is how Ukiyo-e was done. Below is a picture of Sharaku (kabuki actor Otani Onji II)  which has become an iconic figure in japanese art.
