    I drew this for a browser game illustration contest. The game takes place in the Sengoku period of Japanese history, so I decided to draw a showy and tomboyish princess.

    This was my contribution to Nitengo's Princess Royale Chronicle.
    It's a modern/near future take on Little Red Riding Hood.

    Here's a ninja that, while quite "exposed," does not seem too concerned with concealing herself.

About Me

infinote

Illustrator / Japan

When I was very young, I enjoyed drawing pictures, but after entering high school I became enamored with the guitar. I continued playing music in a band for a few years afterwards, but we broke up as soon as we graduated college.

I then moved to Osaka to pursue music. My current creator name and logo are the remnants of that time. While helping a friend make flyers for an event, I discovered graphic software. After this, I became interested in desktop publishing design and began working as a graphic designer. As I did my work, I started using more digital tools and pen tablets, and eventually began working as a freelance illustrator.

    Q&A

    Why did you start drawing?

    I started doing digital work after seeing an illustration tutorial video online. It was about the impasto technique, which is completely different from my current style, but at the time it made me think "I want to draw pictures like this."

    What are you particular about in your work?

    When I'm drawing for myself and not a client, I try to not make all my illustrations the same. I am conscious of how I draw things like the eyes and nose and I do my best to make them different in each illustration.

    How long does it take you to complete a work?

    It depends on the work, but sometimes I can finish in a few hours, other times it can take 2-3 days. If I can take my time with an illustration, sometimes I will spend a few hours just adjusting the colors after I finish drawing.

    When do you get the ideas for your work?

    I don't usually experience any kind of divine inspiration during everyday life. Usually my ideas come to me when I'm thinking about a particular theme, or something else that I want to try to draw. Often, its once I start drawing that other ideas come to me.
