Kazuo Oga (various watercolour works c.1988)
Kazuo Oga is one of the most inconspicuously famous artists, which is inspirational in its own right by how humbling it is. You would think they were digital from an immediate approach, however upon closer inspection of the textures, lighting and layering it’s clear they’re perfectly hand crafter watercolour pieces.
His works, featured in the backgrounds of various Studio Ghibli films, are subtle enough to blend into the background of the films yet stand out alone as perfection of watercolour techniques and command of lighting.
Just considering there are scenes where the camera pans across his works for several long moments reflects the sublime quality of his work. And that he was able to develop enough artworks to supply several films with stunning backdrops is nothing short of breathtaking.
That’s a good word for it, “breathtaking”.
super dimensional dance off
Creative Uncut updated their FF12 gallery with much bigger images of the character concept art!
I love FF12 so much, and Akihiko Yoshida is one of my favorite character artists.
If you’re going to dress a female character in battle-lingerie, it better be as exquisitely designed as Fran’s.
Look at the new artwork for tepig and pignite cards omg

From Murata-sensei’s twitter:
Me: It appears that they’re hiring animators for Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)!
Editor: You can’t, sensei.
I didn’t even say anything and they cut me off, tsk—
If Murata-sensei decided to draw anything from Attack on Titan I think I would implode.
omg SENSEI IS TOO CUTE
