Happy new year steemians!👏
I am RYO!
I was spending the New Year very slowly…
In Japan, the New Year is called "Shougatsu(正月)"
There are Osechi cuisine to celebrate the New Year, we go to the shrine to pray for peace of the year…I did both of them, but I did not take pictures.
Smartphones are very important items, but I value the time I leave from them.
So I reduced the time to touch my smartphone and I enjoyed the Japanese Shougatsu😃
Well, I spoke a bit about my past in my last post.
I was almost away from the art world for about 10 years, but regained its passion in 2018!
So in 2019 I would like to emphasize passion and enjoyment of art more importantly in me😀
Why do I draw pictures? Why draw manga? because it is not work. Because I like it!
Many people forget about the feelings of "like" and "fun" as they become adults ... and it becomes merely "work".
I do not want such a life, I do not draw art for companies and society.
I always failed when I was conscious of "work"…But when emphasizing "fun" my life was always successful.
Apparently I am not a businessman, I seem to succeed in various ways as a "hobbyman"
So I saw my old art to evoke my old memory!
That is the picture before I lost my passion to art
This is a picture of Jurassic Park3 I drawing when I was 12 years old!
I was crazy to draw the dinosaur scales at this time😆
And this picture is Spiderman I drawing when I was 13 years old. It used a colored pencil!
And this is a drawing about 10 years ago, I used the color pen used by a Japanese professional cartoonist named COPIC in color!
Also this was about 10 years ago…It is an eerie picture but it is a character of a Fullmetal Alchemist!
And from this time around I was almost away from art But until then I really enjoyed the art.
I think that I can further enjoy the art world in 2019!
Let us enjoy this world steemians!
And Japanese Shougatsu greetings↓
