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
can't i draw like that? noooo
i'm just going to go over here and obey the master
Also, are you aware that a YouTube music channel used your work for their wallpaper?
Is this based on a crossroad close to Yoyogi station? It looks familiar!
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.
really beautiful capture!
Great work Yuumei!
