More about anime illustration
Anime is a Japanese form of animation now popular around the world. Like manga comic books, anime often features heroic characters with larger than normal heads, big eyes and plenty of energy and dynamism. This carries through to anime style illustration, along with the fantasy and sci-fi themes found in many anime stories.
Anime illustrators specialise in visual storytelling, creating astonishing characters, often in good versus evil scenarios, using a variety of media from pen and ink linework through to delicate watercolours. Strong female characters also feature. Anime’s cross-cultural references make it modern and enigmatic, applicable in editorial, publishing, advertising and more.
