[fanart] Ao Kuang and artdump
This week, I realized a dream - I am now the proud owner of a printer/scanner! I've wanted one for years, but have always been too poor to afford one, but even fancy ones like mine now come at pretty low prices. It's an HP Photosmart b110 model and it's gorgeous. One massive upshot of this is that I can now scan stuff pretty soon after actually drawing it, and lo and behold I have some pretties I've been doodling in between working on the family portrait.



First up, I have finally consolidated in my mind how the illustrious Ao Kuang does his hair:



Also had a go at an up-do for him which I'm super-pleased with :3

Had a mad desire to see if I could draw babies, so Jun-Jun yet again provided the muse:



I kinda want him more pudgy, but then that's more a mammalian thing...

Then a random goddess and a water-cat-come-sprite decided it wanted to erupt onto the page as well...



Aaaaand finally the guy who started this all of, my demon prince whom I have christened (heh) Tild, in honour of the friend who looked at the head and said "Cool,", inspiring me to carry on with the rest of him:



So yeah, pretty productive month for once. I blame work for being so busy then so dull that the creative juices went into overflow :)

Ooooh, pretties! Also, I REALLY like your demony guy. He's NICE-looking.

I'm not sure I get the correlation between the Chinese names for the dragons and the Japanese ones.

Is Ao Jun = Gojun, or is Ao Kuang = Gojun?

(NOTE: I've used @ou@ here to indicate a long 'o', because I can't type them)

Ao Kuang = Goukou (East)
Ao Qin = Goukin (South)
Ao Run = Goushun (North)
Ao Run = Goujun (West)

Annoyingly, both Jun and Shun are 'Run' in Journey to the West. There's other literature out there that gives them different names, but these are the ones I go with.

From wikipedia article @Dragon King':

The Dragon Kings are:

Dragon of the East: Ao Guang (敖廣)
Dragon of the South: Ao Qin (敖欽)
Dragon of the West: Ao Run (敖閏)
Dragon of the North: Ao Shun (敖順)


Hope that helps!

Maybe you can ask Kuang if he got in another tiff with Goku over Nyoi-bou, what with that tsunami and all...

(my sketchy knowledge of the original myths makes me think some might have been folk-explanations of tsunamis and other mysterious ocean pranks...)

Yes, or dragons loosing their temper - that can cause floods, tsunami etc. That's why they need to be placated with offerings and gifts to keep them happy :)

These are lovely - so great to see your art again. I will poke teru.bozu.ebi and be sure she comes and takes a look, too, since you and she are the two most dragon-loving folk I know!♥
