OSCP3 - cover redrawn by romanshoubu OSCP3 - cover redrawn by romanshoubu
I might as well submit this. I redrew the OSCP3 cover a while back to the reprint I did a while ago. I need to promote my comics more. D:

The design of the front cover is a tribute to Suehiro Maruo. I wish that my comics were more exciting and detailed like his work. *sob*

Yeah, it is definitely a tribute to one of his illustrations. I really like the collage aspect of his work. :-) <3 Thank you for the comment. :D

I LOVE the work you do with...with...what do you call them? ;; Block prints? Like, you carve out shapes, ink up the linoleum, and then press it on a piece of paper? Am I totally wrong about this? ;;

ANYWAY, the point is, I love the grainy detail and repetition of shapes and your USE OF COLOR! I love your non-black lines. :heart:

It's called linocuts! Or linoprinting. :-)
I'm a bit envious of people who can pull off painterly like colouring techniques, but I'm glad you enjoy my colour style. :D

Linoprinting! Thank you! I will try to remember that. :)

I, too, am envious of painterly coloring, but I'm also envious of your coloring. :I

I have to say I really do love Jirou here ;; he looks so devious!! And I love that Oscar is now holding a book. He looks so... I don't know. Like he's holding many secrets or something. XD ;; it's wonderful, you're improving so much @_@!!

Thank you for the kind comment. I wonder when a devious, if ever, Jirou will ever appear in the comic. XD;;; Yeah- my drawing has been changing a lot, but I'm still unsatisfied... I guess I want to keep improving more and more! >o</

Thanks- yeah, several people have told me that the original cover was pretty good already. But my drawing style had changed a little bit so I wanted to update the cover just to try to get more people interested in the book. XD

hell yeah! (as usual)

this reminds me that I just got my hands on panorama island, and I must say that I liked older maruos works much better...
Reply
:iconromanshoubu:
romanshoubu Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2009
XD Aw thanks!

Panorama Island wasn't written by him though so maybe that is why you don't like it as much? Edogawa Rampo who wrote the original short story is a genius writer though. I guess Panorama is a lot more mature in detail and draftmanship and probably more accessible to a wider audience than his older works. But I have to say that I agree with you, and that my favourite is not this but his older works...

AnnaWieszczyk Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2009
yup, I knew panoramo is by ranpo, but even so I miss old maruo... but I guess we all change and drawing styles are changing with us...

Suehiro Maruo is great, I've only discovered his work just recently, but I'm already a big fan.

Oh thanks! I'm glad you like it.

I love Maruo's works. His stuff is so great. You should check out the manga The Laughing Vampire also by Maruo. It is one of my favourite works from him. :3

omg...now I must buy issue three again just for the wonderful cover =D
looks good...I like that it's so similar and yet...suble changes that bring their own unique personality to the cover?

XD The feeling of the cover seems more mysterious now that there is so much black. It was really different to redo the inking for the characters though!
