The Magician of Backlighting. Be charmed with Rias' drawing of light
Sometimes we find ourselves wanting to apply light on a character we’re drawing in order to make their face stand out. But the artist Rias (リアス) possesses an enigmatic charm; they amplify the presence of their character without always relying on the techniques of light and shadow. Rias manages to masterfully produce depth in their artworks by creating a composition that charms our eyes with the bright and lit places before guiding our gaze to land on the character in the shadows.
This time, we’re featuring illustrations drawn by “Rias” using an impressive technique of light and shadow. Perhaps, it is exactly because there’s a beautiful play of light that what’s in the dim light becomes fascinating. Enjoy!
