This 88Graph is from the opening illustration for Moeyo Pen in "Manga Artist Book vol.3: Kazuhiko Shimamoto".
On the Original, from Kazuhiko Shimamoto
The first comic did not have a cover picture (color illustration), and I had to draw one color illustration later. I didn't expect the comic to be this good, so I put a lot of effort into it.
The illustration turned out very well, with a three-dimensional feel, and it became one of my favorites.
On the 88Graph, from EDITION88
In addition to the red and yellow, the subdued blue-green tones give depth to the entire image, and the character's pose is expressed in a very three-dimensional way in this illustration.
In the production of 88Graph, we were careful to replicate the color tones so as not to detract from the three-dimensionality of the illustration. We sprayed the entire image by hand with a thin coat of pearlescent paint and partially hand-sprinkled with white ink.
