Not many Tintin books (by Hergé- real name Georges Prosper Remi) took place in Japan so it took a bit of imagining to work out how Hergé would have drawn and colored Mt. Fuji, a samurai and the clothes necessary for this scene based on my client's recent trip to Japan.
The poster/book cover has been framed and is hanging in their home.
Here are some work in progress images:
Using reference to keep the style as close as possible to Hergé's.
Samurai outlined. Calm gardener in the background.
Almost finished. We did a bit of back and forth deciding on the colors of her yukata. Finally ended up in the blues. Also, my Mt. Fuji needed flattening.
