Illust. Book - White Crane by einlee Illust. Book - White Crane by einlee
On a winter day, a young peasant named Makoto finds a white crane trapped in the woods as he happened to pass by. He sets it free, never guessing that his life was about to be changed...

my second illustrated storybook le secret de la grue blanche published by nobi nobi! is available online and in french bookstores now!

---

this book was actually released back in may, but i never got around to making a proper preview. thanks once again to nobi nobi! for guiding me through the making of this second book--it wasn't easy, but really turned out awesome (there, i said it!)
this book has only been released in french, but the story is not overly complicated so it shouldn't be too hard to follow along, for those interested in the art ;) (nudge)



about this preview--i thought it'd be cool to use sliding paper doors as a backdrop but it didn't turn out the way i imagined so i ended up cropping the photos all funky. thanks to mom helping me out with the lighting!

UPDATE IN REPLY TO QUESTIONS:

:bulletblack: haha no, i am not french (wondering where you're getting that idea), but i am working on the language part ;P

:bulletblack: the story is a retelling of the japanese folk tale "the crane wife"

:bulletblack: the book is not available in other languages at this time.

:bulletblack: it is purchasable online with shipping worldwide through amazon.fr, or if there is a french bookstore nearby you can try ordering with them.

...anything else i missed?

So I'm a big fan of your's and I love your artwork! And I especially love the way you color! Do you have any step-by-step tutorials on how you color? That's my biggest challenge right not. I'm not very happy with how I color and I haven't really found anyone who has a coloring style that I like. But I love your's!!! How do you do it???

That's interesting, this story book, with your beautiful images. I like this story but it was always with simple drawing for children... (of course it's told for children at first)

I bought this book at the Japan Expo in Paris for my little sister, and she loves it! In fact, now she wants the rest of the nobi nobi! books (like Princesse Pivoine and that other one, I forget the name). She read the whole book to the end by herself even though it tired her out at 10 pm (she's just learned to read). And I ADORE the art!

I kind of LOLed when I saw in the afterword that you had been discovered through dA; that's so cool! Go dA artists!

Ah, now I will have to buy the other book for Christmas. Fantastic art! I love it so much. (and dayum, Makoto is really cute, I don't see many cute heroes in children's books... not that I should be looking for that kind of thing anyway, but I digress...).
