Digital watercolor comics studies, 2019
One thing that helps inspire me in the studio is going back to my favorite media from childhood. I’m a big fan of the Legend of Zelda series and can’t remember how many times I read through the graphic novel adaptation of A Link to the Past by Shotaro Ishinomori when I was young. For years after its release by Nintendo Power, it was out of print. (It’s back as of 2015.) I still have my original copy, and I recently decided to choose some of my favorite pages to recreate digitally in Ishinomori’s original watercolor style.
