Yuri!!! on Ice (ユーリ!!! on ICE)

This breakdown of the Yuri!!! on Ice key visual, illustrated by character designer Tadashi Hiramatsu (平松禎史), is featured in the Comiket 91 set for The Art of Tadashi Hiramatsu (Amazon Japan | eBay). The most notable difference is Victor’s position away from Yuuri and Yurio in the earliest sketch!

Code: Realize: ~Princess of Genesis~ Art Book Cover

Here’s the second otome half of tonight’s batch.The textless version of the cover illustration of the book, featuring both Arsène Lupin & Cardia Beckford. It’s only one more week until the launch of the game and I can’t wait for it! Very excited as it seems incredibly interesting with it’s steampunk setting and spin on gothic/victorian literary figures. Even though my main focus will probably be on Van, I do look forward to Lupin’s route very much, which is rare since usually in otomes I feel the title male character tends to be over-hyped, but I feel strongly Lupin is worth his salt every bit!

Since I got my iron-taloned claws on a set of very good scans of various LOTR art books, I figured I’d share some of my favourite pages here. No prizes for guessing which character they are primarily about.

As it happens… I actually like these designs for Sauron more than the movie one (and I like the movie one a lot). And I feel like the words “cruel majesty” encompass everything I have tried to do with the character in my writing.
