Tsukioka Tsukiho (月岡月穂)
When I was presenting Chinese artist Byakuya Reki some time ago, I had been talking about the cream of the generic stuff, as well as higher standards.
Well, Tsukioka Tsukiho is just that: the higher standard, the level-up.
Some of you might remember me posting a few of her artworks in the early days of Neregate. Her style has evolved a lot over the years, and it can be tricky to associate both her old and new artworks to that same artist.
Tsukiko’s artworks usually feature mature, bishoujo/bishounen characters, with a strong focus on the clothes’ details(mostly robes/traditional stuff) and some recurring elements, like flowers or hair. The amount of detail is pretty insane, and the result is literally jaw-dropping. While different, she definitely reminds me of Japanese artist Radu on some aspects.
There’s no particular pattern on her artworks regarding colors(except maybe the tones, which aren’t too bright) or the number of characters. As for the execution, well, it’s just as you see it. She’s gotten a lot better on proportions now(especially the faces), and you can see that she keeps challenging herself by adding more and more details on her artworks, much to everyone’s delight.
The sad points are, she rarely publishes new content, and she removed most of her artworks on Pixiv (more than a hundred I’d say). Better throughly enjoy the new stuff whenever it comes out.
As a general rule, I’ll never post more than 5 pictures of an artist when I feature him/her.
Somebody sent me an email, asking if I could re-upload some of the charts that were not accessible anymore (all those uploaded on Minus, that is). It is done.
We’ll have a Japanese Artists post(or Korean, depending which one I find first) a bit later this week.
