KABUKI Copic Illustration -Vibrant- by Orcagirl2001 KABUKI Copic Illustration -Vibrant- by Orcagirl2001
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Original Copic Marker Illustration for original manga concept KABUKI.

"KABUKI" is my original story concept set in early Edo period Japan. Kabuki theater first appeared when Okuni of Izumo shrine traveled to Kyoto and danced in the dry beds of the Kamo River for charity. The colorful samurai enjoy her stories of the drama of common life and the freedom of her dance. They ally with her and stand up for this new form of entertainment, when the affluent Noh theather group, steeped in tradition and prominence, seek to stamp out this blossoming art form. This is the WIP premise of the story.
Will it be a novel? A manga? I don't know. Basically for now its an outlet for kimono motif research. :XD:

It could work as a manga. But, a novel would be hard one to pitch to people.

It'll probably end up as a short manga. But for now, its an illustration journey, to see how much detail I can fit into these character designs! :XD:

Right! Maybe these guys could go round the country performing and going through many other adventures through life as well. :)
