Better Late Than Never: Usagi Yojimbo Pinup Process:

Postby Maka » Tue Nov 20, 2012 7:20 +0000


For my pinup of Usagi, I decided to go for a four seasons theme. It would allow me to draw the character a few times to show the range of storytelling Stan does...The spring kite flying shows some levity, the summer has a bit of action and focuses on Usagi's training, Fall is about how interesting a mundane task can be, and Winter is all about severity, focus, and mood. I sketched out the four poses on scraps of bristol board. At the time for Mouse Guard, I was trimming down 14" x 17" pieces into 12" x 12" pages, so I had scraps like these all over the studio as scratch pads.

I would love to get a print of this!

I have two quick sketches by Stan in a similar seasonal theme.... still have two to go (summer and fall).
