Have you ever been inspired by an anime or manga? I’m a huge anime and manga fan. I recently discovered an anime called Ergo Proxy. I highly recommend it. It’s beautiful and intellectual and lovely.
So I decided to create my own version of Vincent’s ship The Rabbit. I didn’t want to copy directly because I just don’t do that. And I wanted to be true to my own style of art. So for me, I found a photo of an old 18th-century sailing ship and I added my own little tweaks to it. Going for a futuristic but antique look.
This piece is as much a photo composite as a digital painting. It just proves you can take inspiration from your interests. This is probably one of my favorite pieces I’ve created lately.
