This is a panel from my Cartooning class's final project; I did a retelling of one of Amaterasu's myths. The style is sort of a mixture of Buddhist thangka, manga, and my own particular thing. Uzume, the goddess of joy and happiness, is also known for her dancing, so I reflected that in the way she appears in the comic (here, dancing atop a fire), and in her costume, which makes references to Chinese theatrical costume and Indian dancer statuary. Drawn with brush pen and technical pen.

Nice - it's not often that I see something so unique while looking through random pictures. 2 I love the way the lines look and the life given to the picture by the pose of the character. 2
