The new Tokyu Plaza building that was recently completed earlier this year. The roof terrace offers a great view of the crossing below along with plenty of places to sit around and relax.
Some great concepts from Google Creative Labs.
The other day I started to sketch out some concept art for my next major project, a strategy game that I hope to release by mid 2013 on iPhone and possibly other platforms. The game is still in the very early concept stage, but I have a good idea of what I want to create gameplay-wise and I’m already excited to get started. Here’s a rough sketch of a possible character.
The other day in Shibuya, I spotted the elusive endagered species Yamanba in their native habitat. I’ve read, and heard about them before; I even have a friend who used to be one, but this is the first time I’ve actually seen one in person. Luckily I had my new camera in hand, and just managed to snap a pic of them from afar. If you don’t know what a Yamanba is, you can read a basic description here on wikipedia.
Yamanba, seems to be an almost extinct super subclass of the more mainstream Gyaru ギャル, “Gal” fashion style that’s can be found on the streets of Tokyo today.
I haven’t been drawing as much as a should be lately, since I’ve been spending a lot of time lately sharpening my UI Design and graphic design skills. Slowly trying to get back in the flow of drawing more polished illustrations. Strangely I feel like my drawing skills have actually grown a bit although I haven’t really been practicing at all.
I figured drawing an existing character would much more low stress than having to draw something entirely original from scratch, so I decided to take a stab at drawing on of the lesser know Vocaloid characters, called Cul.
