I made this piece as a part of a presentation that I had to make recently to a potential client. 

 

It is based on a woodblock print by Kuniyoshi and the original name of the print is Princess Takiyasha summons a skeleton spectre to frighten Mitsukuni. I've never seen an original print of this that was in good shape and I thought it was a shame because it is a very nice print so I decided to make my own version (with a few changes here and there). I hope you enjoy.

Really Nice Work — question if don't mind me asking. How did you get your images to show in your post and not as a attachment? 

 

Thanks

ONSO,

 

Thanks for the kinds words. At the bottom there is the option to either "Drag files here to attach, or choose files...." and I just clicked on the "choose files" and then added the images that I wanted to add.

Ros,

 

I'm glad that you enjoyed my work.

 

ambiroa,

 

I do have a website but it isn't very good and to be honest, I would be embarrassed to post a link to it. I hope to redesign it soon and when I do, I'll post a link to it. I have posted another piece of Japanese themed art before, if you search here in the "Share your work" for The Siren, you'll find it. I will post some more Japanese themed work hopefully sometime soon. 

 

Thanks,
Hokusai

retrograde,

 

Thanks for the kind comments and the funny word play too! This piece is based off of a print that was originally a triptych but the pieces don't all fit together exactly as they should. I had to create some elements from scratch that fit in with the original piece so that aspect of it was very challenging.

Okay, what's frightening "me" here is that insane amount of detail... great job! Looks like it was probably quite a challenge.

...couldn't have put it better myself.

Are you using a combination of Affinity Photo and Designer? 

Fatih19,

 

No, I only used Designer. I do use Photo but normally for other things, for drawings I use Designer only.

Funny, often when I try to start something in Photo I realize I can do this in Designer and switch back... :-) silly me of course but Designer can do everything I need it to. I even bought the Photo workbook but haven't really embraced Photo yet, Designer won't let me. ;)

retrograde,

 

I'm pretty much the same as you. Most of what I need to do, I can do in Designer. I like Photo, it is very powerful but for what I've been doing recently Designer can handle it. Plus I normally work with vectors more than raster images so Designer works out best for me. I do like Photo's Red Eye Removal tool though:D

:-) Yeah same here. I tend to use photo for colour correction and pixel based tweaks and adjustments... much of which can be done in designer. I come from a long history with illustrator so the vector side is home for me.
