Maruyama "Kingyo"

I went to "Maruyama Kingyo" of Japanese restaurant in Sapporo.
There is no decoration in the door of this restaurant.
This restaurant has atmosphere feel a adult hiding place.
A broadcasters and designers gather at this restaurant.
A menu popular at this restaurant is the dish which boiled the Japanese radish.
And the snack of camembert and asparagus is indispensable to a wine lover.
If you come to Sapporo, let's surely go together.
Probably you want to come to live in Sapporo.

"Baton Twirler" making report -Day 1-

I have work of sculpture besides work of an illustrator.
I published the report of the exhibition in which I participated by this Blog before.

However, since a sculptural manufacture process has not been reported, I think that I will carry the work report of the "baton twirler" under present work.

First, let's carry out the talk of the cause which makes the sculpture of this "baton twirler".
Miss Kristina Blalack gained the title of Miss Majorette of the Southeast in the U.S. southeast part baton-twirling convention held at the Georgia savanna city Armstrong Pacific university.
And the design of a character and a logo was requested from me by her as title acquisition commemoration.

At first, The sketch of a logo and a character...
There was a request "the girl who is doing baton twirling was main and the character of four leaves
and Good Luck AYOP 2006 and her name were arranged."
I watched the video of Kristina repeatedly and sketched one impressive pose.

The work which adjusted several times and was finally finished is this posing.
This design in which four happy leaves will overflow if this girl turns a baton was able to take out her fine atmosphere.
It seems that consequently, Kristina and the family were satisfied very much.
And I am the plan which sculptures this character and I'll sale at the collector shop or my online shop.

First, it is the work which deletes the section of a plastic stick to a semicircle.
This work is the preliminary work for determining direction of joint.

With an alcohol lamp, a plastic stick is warmed and it bends to the angle of an original illustration.

The frame of the part of a leg was made.
The portion of the waist needs to arrange an angle.

I make form with a plastic stick and poly putty this time.
As for poly putty, after hardening is easy to cut.
However, since the smell is tight, sufficient ventilation is required.

The part of the waist was attached.
The joint made with the plastic stick is under poly putty.

Similarly the part of the shoulder makes a core with a plastic stick.
The joint of the part of an arm is made easy to carry out by making this part.

And today's last work.....
Poly putty was added to the part of a leg.
Has the completed type appeared somehow?

To be continued
Have a fun!!

#4th World Wide Drawing Session

It is an event to enjoy drawing, software, hardware,
art supplies or a talk of a hobby while drinking coffee.
It is a drawing session.

The drawing session of the Sapporo area was held in the SUSUKINO area in Sapporo.
There were few participants this time.
However, a small number of people is suitable for the crawl.

We dropped in at "Daimaru Fujii Central" in the crawl.
This store is a popular store treating drawing material in Sapporo.
There was a trial corner of a solid watercolor painting by 3F.

There were many great places which we wants to take a photograph.
Many great places which I can't introduce still more are located in Sapporo.

We became crazy and enjoyed a sketch and photography.
When we had noticed, night had come.
However, there was much scenery which can be seen only at night.

And these are the sketches which I drew.

This is "Ryuku" who is my Drawing Session Friend.

This is one of Coffee Shop "Noguchi". It has old japan style.

I regard the owner of this store as a sense being very good.
The atmosphere of a motorbike and a store matches very much.

When I was crawled, I found the red very characteristic bicycle.

This is a very old drugstore of Sapporo.

I drew five pieces of sketching this time.
At last Sapporo became warm, too.
Therefore I got possible to sketch at outdoors.

Sketching of other participants will be updated with this link soon.

Otaru Crawl

Hello Folks,
I went to OTARU CITY.
Otaru is a city of Hokkaido that is famous in a canal.

This is "TABACCO shop"
There was a small window in a Japanese tobacco shop and purchased a cigarette at the window.
There are few such shops recently.
tabacco shop
This is a lot of antennas and an apartment of the wall which cracked.
Since there are many apartments which have adopted the set antenna, there is little such scenery in recent years.
Moreover, Japan is a country with many earthquakes. The numerousness of the cracks of this building is serious.
Antenna apartment
When I saw sky, I found this Street Light.
The spiral design was very beautiful, and the portion of glass made the "float" consider and thought that it was an apt design to Otaru currently reflected in response to a marine benefit.
Street Light
This is "a moneylender's advertisement" often seen in the country town in Japan.
A wooden building and this wooden signboard exist like a set without knowing why.
I am an alley maniac.
If a thin dark alley is found, a photograph will surely be taken. And I like seeing the empty clipped by the building.
This place call to "HANAZONO" area.
There are not "Horizont and verticality" in this place!!
A countless electric wire is connected with a signboard and each is freely attached in the wall.
However, it is a place very interesting as a motif of a sketch.
Have a fun:)
