forumsdrawing discussionJapanese Theme'd Wall Mural
xswirvex (Apr 13, 2006)
im painting my walls and i went through a couple idea's for murals to paint on my walls such as Retro/abstract designs to "cartoons over the ages" to 'around the world" and settled on Japanese themed mural [how original right? :P] so im thinking like... archways, cherry blossom trees, Panda/bamboo, geisha's and such, i was just wondering if anyone would wanna make some concept art or give me some idea's cause i've kinda went blank XD.

and.. Mean wall paint... was lead based -i didnt know- and had a reaction to it BAH!

Well it wouldn't really be Japanese themed then. Just do a Chinese theme.
If you really want to do one with a Japanese theme, there are many very interesting Japanese woodblock prints to influence you.

How about Asian themed?

You could always do Bruce Lee......

But seriously google up things on China and art and especially the culture and you'll find something, or check your local library.

Or you could do Jakie Chan. :)

Wasn't tubgirl faintly related to Asia?

... better to stick to Panda's, actually.

Personally, i would say that painting a animal on top of the background would ruin the feel. Just a nice subtle background should work nicely.

I see I was wrong, your looking for Japanese themed scenes, nothing beats a beautiful sunset set against a backdrop of hills, trees and a beautiful old Japanese house or temple. Classic. Good luck with that xswirvex.
