Kenji Tsuruta Art Book


18 years from the comprehensive art book "Comet" (published by Kodansha), 11 years from the theme art book "FUTURE" (published by Tokyo Sogensha) specializing in Captain Future's illustrations, now in 2022, the world is being questioned by Hisabi. , Kenji Tsuruta publishes a gorgeous color art book!

The unique beautiful girl, the delicate touch, and the details that make you feel the sense of wonder of science fiction.
Kenji Tsuruta, a manga artist who is also known for his works, continues to play an active role in the field of illustration.

He has published several art books in the past, but he hasn't published them for some time. Illustrations used for binding various books, new books, and paperbacks, CD jackets, setting images for works in movies, posters, cards, and other illustrations drawn for variety projects have been drawn for about 20 years. Slowly, many continue to accumulate.
A part of them, the illustrations drawn for the new edition of the "Captain Future" series published by Tokyo Sogensha, was published as an illustration collection "FUTURE" in 2011, but it remained. Various illustrations are still left untouched.

As an attempt to randomly and shuffle about half of the unrecorded illustrations, as a comprehensive and all-natural color gorgeous art book that contains many illustrations that are said to have been drawn since 2004. It will be published twice in spring and autumn.The first art book this time is titled "Tsubuan".

The contents include the illustrations of famous novels such as "Emanon series", "Sky Crawlers series", "Brave Story", and "White glass", the illustrations attached to the text of various works (colored versions are the first to appear), and electro. In addition to the original illustrations of rock band Judge Johnson's CD jacket art, "Shin Godzilla" and "Evangelion" and special effects, only some people saw the play pamphlets and posters for local governments. We also collect rare works that may not be available.

As the name "Tsubuan" suggests, this is Kenji Tsuruta's art book, which is packed with grainy sketches for the first time in a long time.

Nice and cute
Beautiful and official visuals. For learning to draw or just appreciate. More personal and touchy than jpg.

Excellent book for starting
It has a specific art-style but it's also a good one. I found it especially useful for it's overall heads and faces. Drawing a good body is one thing but you need a well-shaped head and face to really give life to your drawing.

Really helps give you the references you need going forward.
One of the most important things about drawing, is knowing what you want to draw before starting. Reference is probably one of the most integral parts to art, even if it's from another's art. Asian Fantasy (and girls) is something many love for varying reasons. I love that traditional culture aspect and this is good for that.

It can be easy to forget how hard is it to draw eyes.
This book will definitely give you ideas and references on how to start your journey into drawing better eyes. Even if you don't care to get too into the super high detail, it will help even with simplistic style before it gets more complicated.

Hair is very important for showing a unique personality
These kinds of books are always good for reference if nothing else. Of course, there is more than just reference. Hair can either be very hard or very easy, depending on how much detail you put into it. If you want to try your hand at getting better with the higher detail kind, this will give you some help and ideas.
