Winter Season Week : Day 4
I actually wanted to post a Death Parade picture, but unfortunately Pixiv had no decent art for this series.
Bear with me and Maria-chan on this one.
We’ll have a Chinese Artists post coming this Friday as well (or at least I think I’m gonna pick a Chinese this time). On another note, I’m a bit tired these days so chances are that I won’t start working on the Spring chart until Saturday evening.
Was thinking about doing a themed PotD week next week. If you have ideas, the comment section is just below.
Version 3 of the Spring 2015 Anime Chart is coming this weekend. I’ll be livestreaming the entire making as usual, so feel free to come and say hi. No registration required, hopefully.
Inaugurating a new category titled “Korean Artists”, which itself is part of a parent category called “Another Artistic Side”. These will feature Asian artists (mostly from Pixiv) that are not Japanese. Pixiv has a lot of talented Korean and Chinese artists, and I always thought it was a shame not to talk about them. Historic reasons made me focus on Japanese artists, but Korean and Chinese ones deserve just as much praise. For those of you who subscribed to posts by email, do not forget to update your subscription preferences if you didn’t choose to receive emails from “All” post categories.
As far as Korean artists go, Emily stands among my favorites (but I’ll show you many more awesome ones in the future, don’t you worry). Her style has evolved quite a bit, and I quite like the current one. Although, I feel like her new artworks are becoming (slightly) visually more “mainstream” and less unique, which is a bit of a shame. An example would be pic n°5, which is from Emily but quite harder to recognize due to its more generic style.
As her name suggests, Emily is a She. It’s always awkward when you find a female artist drawing erotic and explicit content featuring exclusively female characters, as you’d think that this would be exclusively done by men (but fact is, people like her are quite common).
She’s been in the drawing business for quite some time actually. To the best of my knowledge, she’s been publishing doujins since at least 2005! Also, she recently had one of her adult mangas animated. For your reference, the 18+ anime is called Love Colon. As far as art goes, it’s as good as you’d expect from Emily:
To talk a bit about the art, the goodness lies more in the execution than the actual style itself (which isn’t quite as unique as some other artists out there), i.e its moe-level, which is pretty high. Her art is not always easy to recognize, but a few characteristics are redundant, like the size of the eyes and brows, as well as the shape of the face. Content is usually on the ecchi side (well, she does doujins you know), and features a lot of references to the MMORPG “Tera”. This means a lot of kemonomimis and lolis, just like previous artist Peragura. This also gets a high score on the Shabadadoo meter.
If there is one thing I’d reproach to this artist, it’s that half of her artworks are unfinished, as the coloration is left in a half-done state (the lines themselves are often left not too rough). This is not bad per se, and is understandable given the number of sketches she produces (and coloring takes time).
Overall, a rather delicious artist you don’t wanna miss.
