Japanese Guardians of Ga' Hoole book covers

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 17, 2012, 10:45 AM
Hello everyone!

These are the Japanese covers I found, I first discovered them from this thread on the Owl Fantasy forum:

www.owlpages.info/fantasy/view…

I find these covers are darker then the Americans and portray the story better. They are drawn better, the composition and rich colours give them more depth.

Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 1: The Capture: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 2: The Journey: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 3: The Rescue: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 4: The Siege: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 5: The Shattering: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 6: The Burning: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 7: The Hatchling: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 8: The Outcast: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 9: The First Collier: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 10: The Coming of Hoole: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 11: To Be a King: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 12: The Golden Tree: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 13: The River of Wind: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 14: Exile: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…
Guardians of Ga'Hoole Book 15: The War of the Ember: i1204.photobucket.com/albums/b…

Could you imagine if the Japanese made a Manga or even an Anime film/ series of Guardians of Ga'Hoole and did it in a 1980's style like Akira? This would blow my mind.

I saw this post on Tumblr and I've wanted to find out more but I can barely read the signatures on the artworks.

Oh! Nice find! I am going to make a blog about this on the group. :P

I uploaded the images to Google Images to search for the origin of the pieces and I found the following links – other than Thumblr – bellow.

The first link is a link to a Twitter tweet in Japanese that reads: “# adventure of Faoran the official site I wrote the reading material "owl Armament consideration". Contents because they wrote while thinking is diffuse, but identification and, story of mask decoration of Cotai affiliation.”

twitter.com/MitsuhiroArita/sta…

It then links to this link:

www.mediafactory.co.jp/faolan/…

Which reads in Japanese: “Kamen story (owl mask, mask of wolf), if it is too put a fine historical research in the main illustration, for the possibility of later inconvenience comes out increases, the original elements are not designed ahead. But, currently series final volume " episode 0 beginning of the story so I end work "also, and I would like to draw a little more owl warrior that incorporates the original historical research.

The film "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" Kamen (helmet) owl wearing will multiple appeared. It is to show off the decorations. Existence attached to the helmet of "placket" (Japanese armour that shines video, to increase the morale of ally with is seen) design was a role to prevent Aiuchi. From modern people were quite containing the hard "placket" or coat of arms understanding "flag". Targeted than was dressed that stands out about great people likely, the target The opinion that either not be in it is often heard. However, not attached, such as in the battle weapon you have to hand collide thousands several tens of thousand at a distance, such as reach the opponent, once distinction when it comes to melee friend or foe N. between Reflexes avoid, as to act to keep the chain of command is the military, you need to understand who or where you are for.

This volume "Guardians of Ga'Hoole" appeared a scene to determine someone just the sound of flapping is owl, but bear, because there is also a united front with other animals such as wolves, how to be able to identify the other individual and affiliation it would be necessary.

Possible the first, is the smell. Potpourri but would be implemented by scent bag (fragrance to make by mixing such as flowers, leaves, fragrance, oil), It does not work on birds and snakes that does not work the nose, use scene that can be is likely to be limited.

Then sound. As real battlefield trumpet and conch is blown, whistle it is the idea of ​​wearing the mask a. Kamen to have crafted, it is possible to play a sound that can be used to identify and receive the wind while flying , that thing. If the whistle of non-snake is likely ready to other animals.

And light. Owl our sacred tree of Fool has or transport put the often burning stone in a bucket. I signal using this light is likely to be available.

Although I tried to various imagine, vultures and hawks, all until the united front and the like snake is equivalent to the difficulty seems to that the cover to identify means. Although still seems to be reasonable to think that the Ki There identification by the design of the mask , is not a decoration of decorated notation of helmet like a movie to the original. However, cultural level, such as masks, which has been subjected to engraving to think from a technical level would naturally prefer to think there was The. personal delusion But it tied with the technology of "bone sculpture" wolf in "The Adventures of Faoran", and stray to work in the blacksmith and the pair, the teeth in steel (iron that was trained and hardened at a specific temperature in addition to carbon. Normal chaser of wolf wearing a tool of higher rigidity than iron), because is interesting.

While thinking such a thing, and I tried to draw a mask which has been subjected to engraving of sacred tree of Fool to spread the crown to the starry sky. Black part is a set that is black with an oxide film, that is rust. Era there is no paint is actually technique to issue a color by using a chemical reaction of these metals was used. In order to prevent the eyes and around the back is unnecessary reflection of the mask would be reasonable more you have to black corrosion.

Retractable combat nails and flip-up of Kamen (visor) I want to remixing such elements There are many, but in it for the picture once there is also a serious thing, and I would like to proceed little by little.

Era combat nail Ejiruribu has been made, draw the war of northern kingdom " Gafuru Heroes episode of 0: beginning of the story "will be released in April 2014!”

I also found another link that contains more drawings and more information.

twitter.com/hashtag/フ&#…;

You are going to need a translator.

Overall, it seems to have something to do with something called ‘Adventure of Faoran’.  It might be a manga, as I have read that some people have said that there are 5 volumes to this. But it seems that it is only in Japanese. 

Sorry about the long post, I just wanted to get all the information I found in one place.

No offense to the other illustrator/cover designer but these really portray the story much better-
also the English versions are kinda awkward in design
