    It’s been cool to see his work evolve over the years. I’m always drawn to his more loose immediate fantastical work, as opposed to the more developed and polished pieces. The first one is incredible!

    Definitely the first, perfect amount of color and detail. Still the whole set is fantastic.

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami


This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
