Tenderness and Anime Girls: Illustrations by Ilya Kuvshinov
Ilya Kuvshinov is an illustrator who mostly draws delicate and incredibly stylish portraits of both real and fictional girls. Among his works are portraits of Major Motoko Kusanagi, Yennifer, and other legendary heroines of mass culture, but the main thing is that Kuvshinov himself creates equally cool concepts.
In 2014, Ilya moved to Japan and worked on the anime The Wonderland, where he designed characters, locations, and even served as animation supervisor – rules and supplemented the animators’ work to make the film look seamless in the end. And last June, Kuvshinov became the lead character designer for the new anime Ghost in the Shell. Isn’t that a success?
