bento sketch book #7 July 12, 2009

Posted by AnnaTheRed in bento blog (all), bento blog - sketch.

It’s time for another bento sketch book!

Bento #46:  Totoro with cherry blossoms

The drawing wasn’t completely finished, but I like how this bento came out. I had a hard time filling the space in the middle part of bento, but it worked out fine in the end. Totoro inari-zushi was fun to make too.

Bento #47: Ano-niku bento

As you can see, I only finished the half of the sketch, I was too lazy to draw them. 😛 But instead, I wrote down a list of what I was going to make “ano-niku” with.

Bento #48: : Laputa robot with cherry blossom

Originally, I was going to put him lying straight in the bento box, but I realized that he was too long and I’d have to make him really small… So I changed to the angle of his body so his body would be the same size as the inari. I didn’t draw too many details for this one, but I did a detailed drawing of the fox-squirrel as reference on a different piece of paper.

Bento #49: Patapon

For this bento, I only drew one Patapon. I was going to make a more complicated monster, so I drew it, but I ended up making the easier monster. I drew a round shaped tree from the game in the sketch, but after putting Patapons, I ended up making trees with snowpeas.

Bento #50: Prinny
I didn’t trace it, but I basically copied the cover design of the Prinny game for this sketch. I drew many characters for this bento in the sketch, but I couldn’t even make the half of them. I really wanted to make the tomato head worm though.

Anna you’re really really talented and your Totoro bento really amaze me. Me and my elder sister have been a big fans of Totoro since we’re a kid and thank you so much for creating the Totoro bento 🙂 Thanks again for sharing on how to do Kyaraben. I like your way of making Kyraraben very much! It’s easy and do not require buying a lot of moulds and cutters which is very economic for amateur like me.
Keep it on!

God bless

I absolutely love the cat bus from Totoro lol… I know I comment a lot about Totoro but I can’t get over how great of a movie that is, especially for it’s time. The whole american anime craze didn’t really take off till the mid nineties, right? Or am I just too young to remember anime popular here before pokemon and sailor moon.. hmm.
