This 88Graph is from the cover illustration for volume 4 of " Nine in Adversity ".
On the Original, from Kazuhiko Shimamoto
On the 88Graph, from EDITION88
I had drawn it as a serious baseball comic, and finally, the special move appeared. It was embarrassing for me as the person who drew it, but I was like, "Let's go!
When I first drew Otokodama, I was extremely embarrassed. I wondered what people would think and what they would say.
Sometimes these challenges go well and sometimes they fail, but this one went well.
The red color is a complex mixture of colors, and we replicated it on the 88Graph while paying attention to its tonal expression. Since white ink was used for the background in the original work, we partially hand-sprinkled with white ink, one by one.
