Tezuka by BurntStrawberry Tezuka by BurntStrawberry
my 6x6ft portrait of osamu tezuka. if you download the high res version, you can see that the background is a collage of shounen jump characters.

This was my "recycle" piece for AP art. I decided on osamu tezuka because he almost single handedly created anime.
that and i had a shit load of shounen jump to get rid of.

the border is spraypaint, the portrait is acrilic, the rest is collage, modge podge and the sort. i dont remember how long it took.

Ah, very well done! This must have been hard to do, especially at thirty-six square feet. The layout is really, really cool and innovative: The dense paint in the center, fading into the actual comics as you go out, and with the logo of the magazine issues as the borders is, in one word, genius. I love it! :D

If you didn't get an A+ for this, then this is one screwed-up world. Something like this ought to be in the official Tezuka Museum.

Keep up the great work! :)

haha thanks! it's one of the few pieces i can look at without hating. (i'm a self hating artist) and that fact alone is what proves to me how good it really is. Thanks for the compliment, i worked hard on it!

Well, be humble, fair enough, but try not to hate yourself or your art. Everyone has room for improvement, and though it is good to aim for perfection, not settling for anything less is a bit extreme, wouldn't you think?

That said, you're welcome. Keep those cogs a-turnin'! ;)

Its a collage, so I did everything except draw the original comic pages. I had been a subscriber to the N. America Shounen jump for about 2 years or so.

It's like one of those huge memorial paintings that were made for musicians like Jimi Hendrix. Tezuka definitely deserves such a lovely tribute like this for all he's done.

The collage idea on comic pages is great. I really like this :heart:
