龍狩りの春祭〜桜花舞う季節
Ryugari no haru matsuri - oka mau kisetsu (Dragon Hunt Spring Festival — The Season When the Cherry Blossom Falls)


どラも、伊藤ベンと申します。
このような晴れの場に、またもや参加が叶い光栄です!
今回は『日本』そして『季節』がテ一マということで、私が好きな季節『春』をモチーフにテーマを膨らませてみました。
日本から古来より伝わる伝説のモンスタ一『龍』をメインとして登場させて、画面のキャラクタ一には天使の翼を付けて、そして自分の絵らしく、刀の武器も持たせて――。

しかし今回は難産でした。実作業はもちろんですが、特に構図でひたすら悩んだ時間が多かったように感じます…。
難産ついでに、この際なので昨年描いたキャラクターも登場させてみました。前回の図録をお持ちで気にされた方は、確認していただければ幸いです。

と、こんな苦労をした結果からなのか、それとも制作に掛けた時間が長かったせいなのか、近年描いた作品の中では一番好きな絵になったような気もします。

桜はいいですよね!ラブです!ビバ日本です!!
昨年とても色々なことが起こりましたが、やはリそれでも私はこの日本が大好きです。

この作品を御覧になった方も気に入って貰えたら、それに勝る幸せはありません。
ありがとうございました…!!


Hello, my name is Itoh Ben.
I am very honored to be able to participate in this event again.
This year the themes are ‘Japan’ and ‘seasons’ so I decided to use my favorite season, spring, to enlarge upon these.
I used the dragon, a monster from Japanese legend, as the main subject, giving the characters in the picture wings like an angel and having them carry swords, as is typical in my work.

However, it was difficult to do. Of course, it goes without saying that the actual illustration was hard, but in particular, I seemed to spend an awful lot of time thinking about the composition.
As well as it being difficult to create, I also added the characters from last year’s work and I hope that those of you who have last year’s catalogue will look and check this out.

Perhaps it is because it was such a struggle to create, or because I spent so much time working on it, but I think that this is my favorite picture in recent years.

Isn’t cherry blossom great? It’s love! Viva Japan!
Lots of things happened last year, but even so, I still love Japan.

If people like this picture, then nothing could give me greater happiness.
Thank you very much.
