This is going to be a shorter edition this week. I had a really hectic, kind of rough week, and I’m heading home somewhat unexpectedly today. That being said, I think I have a nice variety of pictures for you guys this week. I’m nearly always awed by the talent I find on Pixiv (and just as often horrified at how perverted that talent can be ^_^”).
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the pictures. Don’t forget to chime in down in the comments with your favorite picture or requests for subjects or shows for next week!
Anime Artwork Adventures #1 | Anime Artwork Adventures #2
You could probably consider this a Summer 2014 issue of Artwork Adventures, as shows that ended this past week feature pretty heavily.
Fanart is an interesting thing because it represents a level of fandom engagement different than what we often experience on blogs, Twitter, Reddit, or on anime forums. It’s always fascinating to me that there’s basically another entirely different segment of the fandom (a ridiculously talented segment) that spends their time creating artwork of the shows they love, rather than just yakking away about it. Anyways, on to the pictures!
Hello all! This is a new, experimental recurring feature that I want to start up here on the blog. Inspired by Nate Ming’s Fanart Friday articles that happen over on Crunchyroll each Friday and by my love of pretty pictures (as I can’t create them myself) and by my newfound friend Pixiv, this is intended to be an opportunity for me to showcase some of the cool fanart that I find that otherwise might go unseen by the English-speaking, non-Pixiv-using anime fandom. Depending on how things go, I may reach out to some other platforms (DeviantArt, etc.), too. I’m no art critic, but I’ll at least try and explain what attracted my attention to each picture. For now, sit back and enjoy!
