These artworks by emperpep ( http://emperpep.deviantart.com/ ), an anime/manga artist on dA are certainly more than worth a look. The artist’s art seemed to me like digital art, as it was too detailed and vibrant. Oil paints are often soft and yellowish, and with water-paints, I have little experience. So, now i see that water-paints can be used to create paintings that preserve the vibrancy and don’t get all dull as oil paintings ( though oil paintings have their advantages too). I can only wonder that how much time it would have taken to create a single piece…. One also, notices that although most of the paintings here display moon-light scenes, they still are clear as day, and not dark; the details are same as one would do in a daylight scene….
