Tokyo Crawl in January

Postby kumi matsukawa » Mon Jan 13, 2014 1:29 pm

We had and will have sketch meeting several times in January. So I'd love to share our “Sketch meeting in Tokyo in January” result here :D

First, we had sketch meeting on January 5th at Tokyo Dome city in Tokyo.

We rode a Ferris Wheel which took 15 minute for a round. So we made a sketch during that time. That was quite a fun game.

Next, we sketched the view of Tokyo Dome City lot. Actually, later when we were almost finishing drawing, a guard came to us and said that we needed a permission to sketch within the site... Maybe we might have intimidated visitors :-b

After having lunch, we went to a building where one of members works. There we were able to draw leisurely each other.

Then we went to a coffee shop. Ended our sketch meeting sharing sketches each other over a cup of coffee.

Second, we had sketch meeting in Shibuya, Tokyo on January 13th.

These were done while waiting for the members to come.. In front of the most famous Japanese dog status, “Hachi-ko”. It was a very cold day...

Then we went inside of Shibuya station building and sketched the view through the window. It was inside, but still very cold...

So we took shelter from cold by drinking hot coffee and kept staying inside the restaurant :thumbup:

Third, we went to Shinagawa aquarium, in Tokyo on January 18th. It was a small but lovely place, wish it were much warm day so that we could have drawn not only inside it but also it's beautiful Japanese style garden... Anyway, here some of my result from the aquarium...

Dolphins show.

These guys were relatively less moving, sketchers friendly creatures.

But of course these were the most sketchers friendly creatures: sketch friends at a table in a restaurant :-))

I am late getting these up, but here I go!

Getting on the Ferris Wheel to do super speedy sketches at TokyoDome!

Image

Here's my sketch from the moving Ferris Wheel...I made a bad decision to choose a subject outside of the car that was changing perspective every few seconds haha...
Image

Next we sketched in Tokyodome city for a little while before we got kicked out by Tokyodome security?..oops ;)

My wife's first sketch crawl EVER!! She did great!
Image

Here's my sketch before getting kicked out...I still want to add more colour to it, but trying to fight the urge.....
Image

After this, we sketched in a Tokyo office and were surrounded with comic books :)
I did a cartoony version of everyone....
Image

After this was a coffee shop...I did more chatting than sketching as I usually do haha.....
Image

After all of it, I made a comic of the whole day!
Image

A great day, thank you Kumi and everyone else! Looking forward to making it out there for another one :D
