Mushishi Tribute: Un and Ah by emla Mushishi Tribute: Un and Ah by emla
Woo, bioluminescence! It's a simple composition, but it was good for trying out some notions I had about painting dim lighting.

It's also Mushishi fan art of the snail-like mushi from the episode "Tender Horns." The Ah (coiled clockwise) devour sound, and the Un (counterclockwise) feed on silence.

If you like old fashioned fairytales or if you love seeing animation with pretty background paintings then I highly recommend this anime. It's even available to watch free (and legally!) online from funimation [link] and hulu [link]


Mushishi is written by Yuki Urushibara.

Thank you! Mushishi is probably my favorite animated show. I love the interesting fairytale/detective story crossover feeling that it has, never mind all the beautiful art in it! :D

I've never heard of it, but what you've said here sounds fascinating! This is an amazing composition too, I'm digging the almost monochromatic thing, which makes the hand stand out nicely.

hmm. Kinda the same for me, I've always liked them, but when I was little I saw a creepy horror movie with snails. It was...interesting.

I love that show, but never thought I would see a Mushishi fan art before( so few people seem to know it). So I glad I was wrong. :heart:

I love Ginko!

I've got a couple pages of Ginko from a few weeks back in my sketchbook. I'll probably upload some to scraps later.

On both sites?! That's really too bad. I guess they only got the rights to broadcast for the US. :(
