Artist Comment

This drawing tells the story of a magic trick performed by a child. His trick is being able to bring story books to life that are close to his heart.

Lately I've got a lot going on and don't have time to do much personal drawings. I'm going to miss them when I actually get a job T_T *can imagine myself doing random doodles even at work*

chubbykitty never fails to impress with her quirky compositions and flawless lineart. Both playful and thought-provoking, the colors and overall concept really draw the viewer into the piece and showcase chubbykitty's high level of talent. It is definitely worth the credits for a full-view!

    I really like this one...
    My favorite part has to be the hat though,
    really cute. :) Good job.

    The guy kinda reminds me of Light form Death Note. :)

    As for the doujin, excellent work once again!

    Ha! I checked the Indy Art section today (lol, for once!) and I knew this was yours~

    Why are you so awesome? Can I have your imagination/creativity/drawing skills/hands?
    I really love this guy's face *_* His eyes are so cool! The idea is great and the lineart looks fab. I wants his hat D:

    Excellent job!

    Pretty as always I love the colours and neat lineart. :3

    Loving the simplicity yet rather detailed look of this doujinshi! It really does look like it came out from a young boy's imagination, what with the colourful streamers and beads, the blockish, collage-like street and yup, that awesome, checkered Magician's hat! ^.^

    There is such a soulfulness and innocence in his expression and eyes.. Something about this reminds me of D Gray Man's Allen.. I think that it is because of his pose. And the pentacle (albeit on a different side). And I think I have seen a manga page with the houses like that.. Well, I I am currently a fan of D Gray Man and besides, even if I wasn't, I would still fall in love with this art simply because it is so good.

    I like the abstract details like the sheafs of papers that make it look like his body is metamorphosing into.. and the crumpling parchment as well as those lines that make me think of music bars for some reason. :) Oh and how the clocks dangling from his hat, show different times. Could it be to show that when you are reading your favourite books, totally engrossed, time is of no real relevance? Or am I over-analysing again.. I think I am..

    Wonderful lineart (love his hand! ^_^ ) and textures, creative concept, great mood-setting... Yes, this deserves its highlight! And my fave!

    Oh and forgot to say, that the perspective is absolutely cool, with the diminishing, windy road, and the roundish, stretched look of the buildings, and the cards fanning out around the prodigy! Okay, that's it, I think! Thanks for sharing your lovely work!

    You know, I haven't entered minitokyo in a long time. Anyway, I got in today and browsing through some pages I say this drawing and I HAD to see it. It one of the most unique drawings I've seen this week. ^_^ Even the meaning it has is beautiful. It reminds me of my childhood. I always wanted to bring the stories my mom used to read me to life using this piece of wood that I carved like a wand. Great work... =]

    everything was already said, so i'll keep it short
    great job on the concept and coloring. even tough its abstract-ish, everything its in its place finalizing the work with the harmony it should have

    simply amazing *-*

  17. priincess Aug 04, 2008

    i like what you did with his 'body' and hand
    nice artwork

  18. Anjhurin Sep 27, 2008

    Ahah, it really does have a 'magic' feel to it. Great color composition, character design and concept are just awesome, and there's so much detail (i love his pointy hat with the clocks ;)). The hanging heart actually looks like something to hypnotize somebody !

    Thumbs up and fav :D

  19. Asra Oct 11, 2008
