OH GREAT!

Posted on

 

Japanese mangaka Ogure Ito (OH GREAT) is a fantastic artist who draws the human figure with a crazy amount of skill and experience! His famous works include Tenjou Tenge and Air Gear.

 

Takeshi Obata

This is one of my favorite comic book artists, Japanese manga ka Takeshi Obata! His most popular work is illustrating the manga Death Note. His other works include Hikaru no Go, Blue Dragon Ral Grad, Bakuman, and even some video game illustration, such as the Wii game Castlevania Judgement.

His art has changed a lot over time and he’s developed a fantastically dark style. Recently though, his current series Bakuman is a much more cheerful story than Death Note and his drawing style has continued to evolve.

This above image is FANTASTIC and shows the evolution of his manga. The top image is from Cyborg Grandpa G Chan.

Check out this man’s manga, he’s teamed up with some great writers!

Welcome!

I’d like to make the purpose of this blog to showcase artwork that I find inspiring. It might be from widely known artists or more unknown people. I might decide to follow a certain kind of theme, art style, or time period; I’ll figure that out as I go! Maybe I can inspire some others along the way.
