Then he proceeds to line work, flatting color, shading, highlights, atmospheric effects, and making the piece dazzle with finishing details.

About the artist

Syokuyou Mogura is a manga artist based out of Tokyo Japan who works in video games and serial novels. He’s a firm believer in working out the construction of an image first, realizing the characters in three dimensional space, creating the shape language, and constructing anatomy. Then he goes to work with his beautiful, lyrical line work and lighting, allowing the construction work to disappear behind it. The end result is a beautifully realized piece that feels both inspired and effortless, while still subtly conveying the precise construction that went into its creation.
