At The Crossroads by yuumei At The Crossroads by yuumei



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

I swear, from the back, this girl looks like Max Caulfield from Life is Strange.

Also, are you aware that a YouTube music channel used your work for their wallpaper?

beautiful!  My main reason I faved this is it looks just like a place my dreams revisit every night!  Only its always busy with traffic and trains passing in near- misses!  I am usually in a vehicle(bus or train).

That aside, doesn't "crossroads" usually mean a place where you have to choose one of at least two directions? I wonder why the other option is a railroad? It makes me think of going outlaw or suicidal.

I'll definitely look up Shinkai sensei. I really don't know if it's only Japan, but I think the urban scene there is just more beautiful. I've finally gotten to see trains and the like here in Europe, but I have yet to stumble on a place that reminds me of my favourite anime like pictures like this do. It feels so sentimental, and I'd really love to see them.

Great work Yuumei!
