As wall as add the Kanji for Book/Main to my E.o.t.Y. Poster (I think I need to redraw it.)

I straightened the Kanji:

For anyone who doesn’t understand Kanji or why the Kanji for “Book” also could mean “Main,” that is because the Kanji meaning depends on the context that It is used in…

Like if that same Kanji is used like this:

Then the word “Book” is turns into the group word “Picture Book,”

And if it used like this then it turns into  name of the Country of Japan or Nihon:

By the way, did you that Kanji is the hardest character group in the Japanese written language. In fact, it is so difficult to understand that many of the “Younger” (roughly Ages 5-25) have a hard time learning & understanding the Character Group in general.


I then went through and condensed each layer into a easer to navigate format.

Before this, i was worried that ice accidentally mess up a layer, or misplace where something is supposed to go.

I also upped the drop shadow for the text from 3 points to 5or6 points.

There’s a only a slight difference, but its still noticeable.


I then also decided to change of the stroke around DEATH:
