The Young Man from the East

Art trade with one of my favorite artists, megatruh! (I'm finally done, haha.) She requested a painting of Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke, which happens to a movie that I absolutely adore so I enjoyed doing this! I wanted to capture movement as well as this interesting perspective (I love his costume design here.) Ref images:… I might continue this portrait series... I want a San and Lady Eboshi to match this one...

Step-by-step process:…

Amazing piece I got in return from megatruh!

well drawn, but a few "archer" mistakes.

Only an archer sees it though....

Your picture was flat out stolen by someone else. Please report him.…

He deletes and hides commentsif they even mention the picture being stolen. Be careful. If he likes your profile picture, then he sexually harasses you. I'm one step away from reporting him on that alone.

I just saw that movie and that is incredibly good. I always loved this picture even though I was not familiar with the character.
