My project was based on my daily buddhism practice.
In this image bellow you will find my first thoughts about this content.
I used GoodNotes to do this first step.
After that I start to develop my art concept for the first set and what I could do. You can observe this in the next image:
These are some of the objects I use everyday: my Juzu, a bell, candles, Lotus Sutra, my Butsudan and incense.
These are the final concept thumbs for this first set:
The next step was my sketches with more details:
The final Artwork was closer to my sketches. And the colors was trying to express a relaxing and peaceful felling.
On the next set I tried to explain the main concept of my practice. These are my first draws:
On my practice I need to pray twice a day (one time at the beginning of the day and the second time at the end of the day). On my ritual I need to be In front of my Butsudan (an altar where I keep safe my Gohonzon - it is a manuscript), ring a bell and say some words that basically means that I devote my life to the cause and effect law (Nam Myoho Renge Kyo).
When we practice and share joy to everyone we know we are able to reach the World of Buddha (Buddhahood). It is a simple and fast way to explain - but it is not that simple because that is a lot of other thing we must do. Hehehe
These are my Final Concept Thumbs for this project:
After this I did my sketches:
I wanted that my spot illustration project was like a lettering to support a text reading and be like a checkpoint to help the reader to remember important points of the text.
I hope you enjoy it. I’m improving my English, so sorry about any mistake I did in the text. Heheh I’m anxious about your thoughts about my project.
We all like a Buddha and we can reach happiness in this current life and in this moment we are living!
