Yogisya is a Japanese illustrator who describes her work simply as “a search for the beautiful”. Her deviantART posts – which include everything from sketches and WIPS to complete commissions and competition entries – regularly attract hundreds of comments. And it’s not hard to see why.
Her work is a kaleidoscope of colour, featuring beautiful but forlorn subjects rendered with indelible line work. Her secret lies in a mix of old techniques and new media.
“I like to use watercolours,” Yogisya says, “but mix them with digital. I’m trying to draw illustrations that incorporate both the academic and manga techniques.”
Yogisya’s work has attracted the attention of TCG, the toy and games company, which has invited her to draw illustrations for card game Last Chronicle. Her art has also appeared in various books and mobile games.
1 Princess “Princess is the artwork that appears on my business card. It’s an illustration I created using my preferred mix of media – watercolour and Painter.”
2 Concerto for us “With the musical instruments in your heart, a person can play the sounds of the soul. Again, it was created using watercolours and Painter.”
