Takehiko Inoue Water Ink Manga

Examples of Inoue Takehiko's work

From Slam Dunk and Vagabond to Real, the Manga work of Takehiko Inoue has been a focus for me for more than 15 years. Not only is his work entertaining and stunning, his unique, classical, elegant and gorgeous water ink style can make it irresistible to anyone at any time. It’s just a few simple neat lines with Japanese tattoos style background rendering together, but it gives me a sense of new life and value. Through his talented hands, his variety of brush strokes with the ink blooming effect (even when it’s just black and white), Takehiko Inoue clearly demonstrates an amazing depth of field and creative tension. I hope one day I can work with him, and help create a new generation of Motion Graphics.
