I'm honest to a fault, I probably love everything you hate and I'm definitely NSFW

It’s always our pleasure to introduce to you to new artists. We dig skateboarding and obviously we dig women. When you put the two together as Australian artist Rhys McDonald does with his custom illustrated decks, it’s instant brohood. YUHMM readers, meet our new pal Rhys.
Give us the low down on how you got started as an illustrator.
I wasn’t one of those lucky people that was born drawing. I was in my late teens before I started really getting into art and probably 21 before I even touched a Wacom. I went to study art but only lasted a year. Where I was studying didn’t offer much by way of digital arts which was where I was leaning too heavily so I just dropped out and decided to teach myself. Not sure I would recommend that technique to everyone, but the DIY approach has been good to me so far. I just kind of started and I’ve been lucky enough to get away with it.

I’ve got this done at the 2010 Singapore Tattoo Show. It’s an illustration by Audrey Kawasaki, and I have been admiring her work for a few years now. Decided to get a this done by a renowned Japanese artist, check out his work here: Knuckle Energy Tattoo.

The Art of Alphonse Maria Mucha
Muramasa’s Kongiku, painted by Vanillaware artist (and Habanero-tan creator) Shigatake. Not only is it notable to have one Vanillaware artist contribute his take on the work of Vanillaware head George Kamitani, this piece is notable for another reason: it was created using DSiWare’s Art Academy!
In fact, it was actually made using two DS games. First, Shigatake drew Kongiku in WarioWare DIY. He then took a picture of a screen displaying that image with the DSi camera, and, using that as a template, drew over it in Art Academy’s “free paint” mode. If you’d like to see the all-DS drawing process for yourself, there’s a video at Nico Nico.
hahahaha nicely done
