Pixiv

Pixiv is an amazing artist website if you enjoy mostly anime. The site is pretty much Japanese and a lot of the artist on there are from Japan.

A lot of the art is top quality and very inspirational.

A lot of the artists are also in their late 20s early 30s so It’s nice if your looking for that age group.

Most of the tags you have to write in Japanese rather than English. It helps looking up name of title in Japanese on Wikipedia.

Blog Post 2

There is this anime I’m currently watching named Pripara. It is an idol anime and It uses 2D and 3D art. It is also an arcade game, which lets you use special cards to switch outfits on the characters.

 

The anime style is pretty cool because every idol has their own style and personality that different then the other. The 3D design is also mixed with Neno lights during concerts which I think is really cool.

 

The concept of having a game and changing characters appearance with cards into a game would be really cool to me.
