Illustration by Animation Artist Ilya Kuvshinov
If you’re on the hunt for cute doe-eyed anime art prints, you need to check out the manga inspired illustration style of Digital Artist Ilya Kuvshinov.
Based in Yokohama, the Russian illustrator and comic artist creates emotive portraits of manga styled girls. Some are fun heroine portraits inspired by memorable females from film, TV and video games, while others touch your heart without the need for recognition.
As a fan of Manga (considered a diverse art form), Ilya might not adhere to all the “style conventions” but it’s his facial features which scream Manga; expressive large eyes (which has became a permanent fixture in manga and anime since the 1960s) with exaggerated pupil glares. The effect brings his characters to life which he combines with button-noses and full lips. Adorable.
Ilya’s illustrations are made available through his Society6 store where you can pick up unframed prints (custom trimmed with 1″ border for framing) on quality matte paper. Unframed art prints start at $16.64 for size 8″ x 8″ and go up to 28″ x 28″.
