How Nostalgic by ChanpART How Nostalgic by ChanpART
Photoshop CS2

Heres a digital painting I did recently. Had it on my mind for a while now. I posted a rougher version few months ago on my blog, but recently I had some inspiration to finish it. So here it is.

Its of my childhood...quite nostalgic. I grew up with these characters, as with many of you, probably..

It was fun to do this, also thanks to everyone who bought a print of this at AX 2008 this year.

Also for those interested, here is an animated gif of the process of the painting, from start to finish.

Love it. Just wondering what the fall out would be if Pikachu summoned some of his Lightning.

Doraemon! Tetsuwan Atom (or "Astro Boy")! Pikachu! Totoro! Gozilla(right?)! Ultraman! (the other boy, I'm not sure of...sry). You've got it all~~~!! I love how you put them all in a scene from "Totoro"! It's beautiful and surpisingly congruous. I mean, the characters don't stick out like a sore thumb, like I would normally expect from characters from different stories in different styles. Oh, and it feels like no one knows Doraemon, so I'm really happy to see him here! :woohoo: It makes me miss Japan that much more... ;>_<; Anyways...FAVE! Such talent!
