I haven’t been posting much lately because I am traveling/working in Japan at the moment! 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
And I just love your art in general! Especially for the wild range of color, as well as the perspective in pieces like this one!
I don't think many artists could pull this off.
May I ask why you flipped colour scheme for the bridges?
On the left it is all reds and yellows and the right green and blues.
Is there any aesthetic reason why you chose to make the bridges the exception or is this symbolic?
My current theory is that they are running in parallel to cross roads thus adopting their respective colour scheme.(thus symbolic)
However, I have a feeling that there is also a more technical reasoning behind this decision.
can't i draw like that? noooo
i'm just going to go over here and obey the master
