Touhou Jibun Katte Emaki 東方自分勝手絵巻

Touhou Jibun Katte Emaki was a joint release illustration book between Momiji Mao and Ganjii for COMIC1☆4. This 16-page, short illustration collection features dynamic portraits of several of the Touhou characters along with a cross-talk interview with the two artists involved.

While I have a few doujinshi from Momiji Mao, this was the first I've bought from Ganjii, though I had seen his work before. Momiji and Ganjii have very distinct styles, so there's little chance you could confuse the art work by the two. Momiji Mao's style is soft and sketchy, with a more detailed, watercolor like finish. And the character designs tend to be a bit on the curvy side.

Ganjii on the other hand, has a very sharp style that looks like vector art works. Lines are thick, shadows are black and colors are cel-shaded with gradients. Yet strangely, the cover art work which combines both artists' work doesn't look that out of place. Even though I bought it with Momiji Mao's art in mind, I ended up liking Ganjii's take on the Touhou characters a lot more.

Though it's a cute little collection, I wouldn't really recommend it. I tend to buy doujinshi like this because I enjoy following artists as they take on different genres (though to be honest, I've seen Momiji Mao's Touhou illustrations before, I was just thinking these would be more updated ^^;). But if it strikes your fancy, it's still available on Toranoana for a low price.

Can't believe I'm missing out on nice art like this. I just refuse to buy art books with so few pages because of shipping :(
