Inspirations from Anime
Anime: A Japanese term for animation.Whereas the rest of the world referred it specifically to animation from Japan or as a Japanese-disseminated animation style which is often catergorized by their colorful graphics, vibrant characters and fantastical themes.
Anime was the initial inspiration that started my Final Year Project; Unreal/Real. It is a form of escape and is able to provoke our imaginations.
Upon exploring further into the background works behind an Anime film or series, I was intrigued by the development from research, sketches, renderings to the final production. Which I felt the familiarity and similarity when we design a space.
I discovered that most of the anime artists did their processes and sketches using the thumbnailing method. This method is also common practiced among conceptual artists.
