Continuing in my project to work my way through the lesser-known images from the Choju Jinbutsu Giga, we come to this image of two rabbit washing a deer. This is probably a ritual bath for the animal, preparatory to a blessing by a priest.
This first one is a traditional ink-only rendition in the hakubyo style of the original.
This one I got a little ambitious with the color, I think. These hues are way too saturated.
This one I just did the outlines, but with colored paints instead of just ink. This is not as dark as the second one, but it’s maybe too light. The deer is like a ghost deer.
