Opiumyum!

I will be exhibiting at Hyper Japan Convention in London this weekend!

For this occasion I wanted to draw something that celebrates the japanese aesthetic I am very fond of.
So I went all out and created this piece on A2 paper (59.4 x 42 cm... so BIG!!) coloured pencils, marker, white ink and ballpoint pens
Took me a long time to scan it (A4 scanner) and merge it in Photoshop X___x Colours do look better in the original, but this is the best I could do with my scanner.

Progress Shots: fav.me/d7rs1x4
Might do detail shots later.

Very nicely drawn! Just drawn with the few Japanese stereotypes such as the kimono, the orange/red shades of the illustrations with the mountains and the sunrise ("The land of the rising sun"), as well as the dragon... :)
