The characters are designed in a minimal, geometric and clean style.
All the game has a really ironic taste, and the character poses want to reflect this.
The game is set in a fictional ancient Japan; that’s why the chosen protagonists are:
1. the evil Kappa;
2. the tempting Geisha;
3. the virtuous Priestress;
4. the frivolous Princess;
5. the mysterious Monk;
6. the agile Ninja;
7. the wise Martial Arts Master;
8. the vain Samurai. via Mikhail Semaev http://bit.ly/1nMT7NZ
A series of three personal illustrations with handmade lettering, inspired by Japanese icons.
This series features historical and mainstream Japanese icons, which are treated with a graphical approach similar to branding. Influenced by Japanese character design and traditional minimalist art, I created an identity containing several designs.The character subjects are very stylized and combined with handmade lettering.
The message creates an extra dimension to contrast the original meaning of each subject.
