Character/art designer thread.
Let's talk about the ones that take their bold, individual aesthetics into designing the characters and the show they're a part of overall.
Pic related. It's Sushio, next to Araki, he's the best in the business
All hail Takami Akio
Shingo Araki. This man managed to pull off the fiery shonen protagonists of the 80s so well that it still works perfectly today, to the point where the artstyle is emulated as much as possible even thought the man died a few years ago.
Hidari, I was so happy she started working on Atelier.
His art is improving but not in every domain. The faces are better, the anatomy is still shit, the shading is way better, the action scenes and titans look better, the characters's looks are still not constant.
Isayama deserves honorable mention for dem costume designs.
I really like Atsuya Uki's art, but it doesn't seem to survive the transition into anime with the exception of Cencoroll (naturally). Tsuritama didn't capture the appeal and I doubt Digimon Tri will either.
By the way, you might know this already, but the picture you posted is by Mebae, not Uki himself. They're friends I believe, Mebae helped out a bit on Cencoroll.
The short jackets are designed this way to not hinter the 3DGM, which use the leather straps.
>Mebae, not Uki himself.
Yeah, but the designs are what I wanted to show, so I just grabbed it off of google.
I feel like Tsuritama did a decent job matching up colors, background, and atmosphere with those designs. But I suppose it didn't manage to capture the detail of those fine lines.
