Faux Book Cover Project - The Oni and the Fox

Well, here's something completely different from me and not really recognizable as something I'd do except for the fact that there's a fox in it.

I wanted to work on my hand-lettering skills and my book cover design skills, so I had an idea to create some fake book covers as a personal project this year. With any luck, I hope to complete at least one a month, ideally many more than that.

This one was inked with a Pentel brush pen and Micron pens, and colored digitally.  It's been a while since I inked anything; it was kind of fun. Maybe I'll have to incorporate black outlines back into my style. We'll see.

Oni, by the way, are Japanese demons.
