Wow, you guys have such amazing pieces! I can't believe some of you have the original pages of the Usagi books!! From what I gather, Stan usually doesn't part with them very easily. Super cool!
If you are referring to the two pages I posted, they were both unused pages
I have a database for all of the pieces that Stan has done a while back. I call it the Database on his website, but I don't feel like it does the pieces justice. Too bad there wasn't some really neat online gallery where you could frame and display things, like a Pinterest? Is there something like that on the internet, maybe even a plugin?
www.comicartfans.com is still a great art database with a ton of awesome artwork hosted there, and it is searchable.
As far as something like pinterest, I have not visited it enough to know anything about it.
Okay, I've been on there a couple of times. It seems like a pretty neat site! Maybe I'll create a branch of the Dropbox to include Original Art/Covers and we can compile it somewhere in a more aesthetic fashion. Probably sometime down the line.
Second, I love this piece! I'm always a sucker for Usagi/Jotoro pieces. Did you digitally color this yourself for your avatar?
It's interesting how many fans seem to request sketches of Usagi, Jotoro, and Tomoe together. Wish fulfillment for all the fans who wish Usagi could just settle down already?
Thanks! Yes, I made a colored version of the commission myself. I asked for the three characters in a festive mood, and Stan proposed to use the Boys' day festival as a setting, because of Jotaro's presence, and because the carps flags which are typical of this celebration would look nice in the background. The commission was a gift from my parents for my last birthday (I got to choose my own gift). Probably wish-fulfullment on my part for Usagi to find happiness, if only in a commission.
