Agedashi - 1 of 7

Hm... Let's see...

This is a Wall Scroll of some sort for a Japanese Restaurant called Agedashi. Too bad that it closed down back in December... *sigh*

This was the first drawing I made for them to be their mascot... Maple leaves and autumn colors were the theme, so there are lots of reds and oranges here. Me thinks the blue sky is a good compliment in this scroll.

Oh yes, that Haiku (a form of Japanese Poetry) is also written by me. :D

Hope you guys like it! (´ ∀ ` *)

A.illusions Gallery: Temaki Feast

A croped version of the original 5ftx4ft painting in Temaki Japanese Resto, done to fit a 1024x768 screen resolution. ^^

The characters featured in this painting are all original, except of course for Maki-chan, the resto's mascot. The other characters are mine, and featured in an on going webmanga called "A.illusions". You may find the webmanga over here: [link] or click on my website on my profile. :D

The characters' names are as follows: (clockwise, starting with the mascot)
Maki-chan, Shijirou, Azorite, Tori Avalon, Feanne, Syun Ukiya, Tifa, Rei Kuassary, Jemma aka "Aya-kun is Mine", and Lain.

Of course, there's the three waitresses in blue... They're random so I haven't named them yet. ^^

So why is this so flat? No shadding? Nothing? Well... That was the order of the Resto's Owner. He wanted it to look more cartoony instead of anime like... Go figure... ^^;

Hope you all like it anyway. :D

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the characters are cosplaying their favorite anime characters... ^^;

Maki-chan as herself
Shijirou as Hiko Seijuro from Rurouni Kenshin
Azorite as Kurapika from Hunter x Hunter
Tori Avalon as Kinomoto Touya from Card Captor Sakura
Feanne as Freya from Chobits
Syun Ukiya as Squall Leonheart from FF8
Tifa as Li Mei-Ling from Card Captor Sakura
Rei Kuassary as Ray Yozora from Shin Hakenden and Maria Tachibana from Sakura Wars
Jemma aka "Aya-kun is Mine" as Aya's biggest fan from Weiss Kreuz
Lain as Marik Ishtar from Yu-Gi-Oh

I love drawing cosplaying characters. ♥

A.illusions Gallery: Don't Mess with Us...

When Tori gets a little carried away with his jokes, he brings out the "very scary" side of me... ^^;;;

I remember we use to have these "100 hit combo" moments in the chatroom. Those were very carefree days I miss... Everyone grew up and went on with their lives. It's a sad, painful truth.

Perhaps one day we will meet again~

Temaki Chase

Hm... ^^

This is a picture of the original painting in Temaki Japanese Resto. It's a local restaurant here in the Philippines located in the Congressional Area in front of Cherry Foodarama. That girl is the restaurant's mascot, Maki-chan. *kawaii* XD

Done in Acrylic Paint on Cartolina. ^^ The original size..? Hm... I can't remember... But Maki-chan is about one cartolina in size, so you get an idea on how big the painting is. ^^

Hope you all like it. ^^
