RSOM entry - Gagaku Berceuse by ryusuke RSOM entry - Gagaku Berceuse by ryusuke
For the past year or so now I've been working on a new story idea with Erick Melton, who handles all of the writing and characterizations for our published works. I was inspired to do this story with the idea of submitting it specifically to Tokyopop's Rising Stars of Manga contest. And as I stated a few days ago in my journal, Erick and I have been chosen to be one of the 24 top entries for the contest.

The people's choice voting is going on right now, and I would GREATLY appreciate everyone going over and voting for me here at Tokyopop's contest page.

You do have to register with Tokyopop's website to vote, though. So... register and re-register as many times as possible!! (I'm kidding)

EDIT:
The title of our piece is Gagaku Berceuse and is on the second row three titles over from the left.

For the picture itself, I wanted to recreate one of the scenes in the story, loosely, and have contain several of the key elements of the story; the snooping neighbor woman, the shamisen, the beer and the ghost. Also, the poster on the wall hints at the kind of music that the protagonist listens to and plays.

Construction for this is phenomenal! Enjoyin' the color scheme for the characters in a dark room. I also like how you got the computer screen to look realistic. And I voted for your project. Hope you win man. :)

And three is my favorite number! :giggle: Because I'm the third Roy in my family. So I guess that means this news must be really special. LOL :) Awesome. If you ever have information where I can purchase the book, let me know. ;)
