At The Crossroads


I haven’t been posting much lately because I am traveling/working in Japan at the moment! :D I’m still working with my team to make Fisheye Placebo and the new Knite, but at the same time exploring new techniques and a new country.

I was inspired by Makoto Shinkai’s beautiful work, and how he uses photography as a base for his paintings. So for this one, my bf took a photo of a crossroad in Japan which I was able to use as a base to paint over. I’m still fine tuning this technique and I’ll make a tutorial for it in the future :D

Did you draw the whole picture by heart? Or did you copy it from an existing photograph? Because it looks extremely realistic, like pretty much flawless!

Oh my God the images make me so homesick.  You really capture the place well.  (I have family and have lived in Tohoku, which is the area of the world I call home.)  And I also have friends and family in and around Tokyo area.  I really miss Japan, hope to move back in a year or two--hopefully for good.  I hate being away, and these pictures really feel like...well...  they capture the feeling of being home so perfectly.

I think the orange on the left represents Hell and the blue on the right represents Heaven, also, this image reminds me of Children Who Chase Lost Voices
