Eeeeey everybody. What's up wit' you?
Today real quick, we're going to take a close look at the super high quality art that's going into JAD. As mentioned before, Spoon has been hard at work, designing, drawing, and animating the colorful cast of the mod. This update we're going to take a critical eye at his work.
So let's start off with Holley's Homeroom Teacher: Mr. S.
Wow, just take it in slowly. Slow measured breaths. I know it jumps off your screen, the lines, the shading. It all just gels. Let's take a quick close up look at this.
Note the expert brushwork on the lines, obviously inspired by the great Norihiro Yagi-san. The raw subtlety and winding thicknesses just bring a whole new dimension to this.
And the shading! Let's talk for hours on this subject. If Noburio Watsuki-san were to look at this, he might've mistaken it for his own work! This is how art comes alive, how it grabs you in. You can just see the years of experience and thought put into this.
Ah, and if we look at those brush strokes, carefully added, I think I see... Yes, I think it is. That is none other than a brilliant reproduction of the lettering done by the great Takeshi Obata-San! Many have tried to come within 10 years of this achievement, and all but one has failed.
Finally, we take a look at the unique fashion that this teacher has donned. Spoon has decided to pay homage to, who else, Hirohiko Araki-san, whose brilliant clothing has inspired a great many young artists to put some real effort into their choices.
Next time we'll look at Spoon's take on the female body type. I can see the Ken Akamatsu styles just flowing off of it.Until then!
