MOEBIUS [JEAN GIRAUD]
I was introduced by Moebius by my teacher in 2D Design, Brady Haston. Moebius' art was very familiar looking to me since Toriyama Akira and Miyazaki Hayao had such resemblance to his style, especially the hatching and the dusty dirty look of their illustration. This illustration shows such a significant difference by letting Moebius touch the canvas and put his take on american comic books. American comic books are known for its dominant black inks and this piece clearly shows more hatching more than everything. Not to mention the light and contrast is all signified by the hatching while the colors are technically one flat color per element.
