Artist Shintaro Ohata Seamlessly Blends Sculpture and Canvas to Create 3D Paintings
When first viewing the artwork of Shintaro Ohata up close it appears the scenes are made from simple oil paints, but take a step back and you’re in for a surprise. Each piece is actually a hybrid of painted canvas and sculpture that blend almost flawlessly in color and texture to create a single image. The cinematic figures are sculpted from polystyrene while the backgrounds are made from traditional painting techniques.
I love this! And you should too.
If I ever finish my story, I want illustrations that look like this. Please and thank you.
All of SPACE and TIME, indeed.
This, this right here is crap. Not just because Doctor Who has lost its luster for me, but because if these illustrations were an actuality none of the characters pictured would go on to complete their individual and rather important destinies.
Mulan would not have gone on to save China, Belle would not have met the Beast and probably would have given into Gaston’s insistent advances, Merida might not have reconciled with or saved her mother. There is also a sub-theme of the Doctor rescuing a few of these characters, as if they need to be saved. This is not okay!
This is big, you guys. I get that it’s cute to fantasize about two of your favorite fandoms colliding, but there are bigger plot points happening here. Respect the stories and destinies of characters!
