I bought this artbook (極彩少年 尚月地第二画集) back in September from CDJ and it is just absolutely gorgeous! It’s by artist Nao Tsukiji (尚月地) and this art book is filled with art from her manga, Adekan. I love her art style a lot – it’s so detailed and so colourful! There’s a nice softness about it like a watercolour painting, I suppose. Sometimes I find that too much colour in an artwork is too distracting but her art is a feast for your eyes. I guess it’s also because she’s thrown in so much detail that the use of so many colours becomes acceptable to me?
Anyway, onwards with photos! Keep in mind I’ve had to edit the colours again so they don’t reflect the actual colours in the book 100%.
^ There’s a few drawings where it’s pretty much the same thing but different colour schemes or different outfits. Usually it’s different colour schemes.
This art book was really worth my money! I can’t get over how gorgeous the art is and the details and colours. It’s a little bit thinner than the Mawaru Penguindrum artbook, I think, and has a hardcover instead. I don’t quite get why they’d have the same image but different colour schemes though it’s all still beautiful art.
I’m definitely going to buy her other art book – I just hope it’s still in stock when I get round to it!
