For Pixiv's 5th anniversary illustration contest
Took a lot of time finding a satisfactory composition.
- The flying papers are speedpaints of Temple of Heaven (China), One Pillar Pagoda (Vietnam), Brandenburg Gate (Germany), Harmandir Sahib (India), Chichen Itza (Mexico), Giza Necropolis (Egypt), Eiffel Tower (France), Statue of Liberty (USA), Sydney Opera House (Australia), Cristo Redentor (Brazil), Parthenon (Greece). Credit goes to Wikipedia for the references. I wanted to show that Pixiv is connecting with artists from all over the world and not just Japan, so I went with pictures of famous places from all continents.
- The binaries (if you can see it...) aren't random numbers.
Tools: SAI, Photoshop.
EDIT: Improved coloring and lineart.
I also post art on my anipan account[link]
