A little bonus image for the weekly!
Something is watching...
This week's challenge uses a palette called Japanese Woodblock and requires you to make a film storyboard. One of my favourite actors is Toshiro Mifune. You can see how this came about. Imagine this as a stylized storyboard for an unmade early 60s film starring Mifune and a mishcievous, malevolent tengu.
Apologies to any Japanese speakers for the Google-translated text in the preview (I hope it says 'Pixel Halloween') and for the fact that it's just written in an approximation of Google's standard font. I'd love for it to look like it was done with a brush but I don't know the direction of the strokes.
I copied Toshiro Mifune from this Yojimbo still.
The style of the trees is based on The Gion Shrine in Snow and Fuji from the Left (The First Village of Fuji), both by Utagawa Hiroshige.
