There’s something about eyes that, when done right, look absolutely beautiful. The good majority of my saved (and bookmarked) images have something to do with really, really good eyes. And y’know what makes eyes even better? Glasses. And, as I’ve said before, I can’t draw worth a damn, so I really appreciate what a skilled artist can do with eyes.
Ichiju is by far my favorite artist out there, mostly because of what I just said. The man knows how to draw wonderful, amazing eyes (and glasses). It helps that he’s got an incredibly distinctive style, too! You can look at an Ichiju thumbnail and say ‘Yep, that’s Ichiju’s work.’
Another great part of this guy is that he does a lot of Touhou fanart. And you all know how big of a Touhou fanboy I am. Another thing is that he does a lot of Mystia, or Okamisty, if you want me to be really specific.
Also, one final note about this gent’ before I head off. If you look at his profile, I strongly recommend you look at some of his R-18 tagged images. I mean, yeah, it’s hentai or porn or whatever you want to call it. It’s made to arouse. But it also looks really, really nice. It’s not just something to get you off. It’s well-drawn, it’s not rushed, it has that good Ichiju feel to it. And I appreciate that.
So, while this is a small post, I’d just like to give massive, massive thanks to Ichiju for being as amazing as he is. Keep up the good work, man. You are a gentleman and a scholar.
