Character/art designer thread.

Let's talk about the ones that take their bold, individual aesthetics into designing the characters and the show they're a part of overall.

Pic related. It's Sushio, next to Araki, he's the best in the business
>>
Honorable mention goes to Hajime Isayama. He would've reached for greatness, if his publishing company given him more flexible deadlines that didn't make his art look like absolute shit

Togashi

His designs are simple, yet interesting and memorable.

This is Unfortunately why I don't read the manga.

>>121396045
I doubt giving isayama a flexible deadline would make his art better, Inoue takehiko improved despite being in a weekly.

>>121396479
I know some people here that called Sushio's designs "nothing special" when shit like this exists

Only the Zodiacs have lame designs.

Shingo Araki. This man managed to pull off the fiery shonen protagonists of the 80s so well that it still works perfectly today, to the point where the artstyle is emulated as much as possible even thought the man died a few years ago.

Ume Aoki is not a Shaft character designer, she has worked on only one show by Shaft in that respect.

I'm a huge fan of Uki Atsuya's designs.
>>
>>121397469
His art is improving but not in every domain. The faces are better, the anatomy is still shit, the shading is way better, the action scenes and titans look better, the characters's looks are still not constant.

I really like Atsuya Uki's art, but it doesn't seem to survive the transition into anime with the exception of Cencoroll (naturally). Tsuritama didn't capture the appeal and I doubt Digimon Tri will either.

By the way, you might know this already, but the picture you posted is by Mebae, not Uki himself. They're friends I believe, Mebae helped out a bit on Cencoroll.

The short jackets are designed this way to not hinter the 3DGM, which use the leather straps.

>>121400247
>Mebae, not Uki himself.
Yeah, but the designs are what I wanted to show, so I just grabbed it off of google.

I feel like Tsuritama did a decent job matching up colors, background, and atmosphere with those designs. But I suppose it didn't manage to capture the detail of those fine lines.
>>
Lets talk about why Sekiguchi is the best character designer to grace anime.
>>
>>121400680
Yes, let's. What, in particular, do you like about her work?
>>
>>121400424
To be fair he was only the original character designer for Tsuritama. Animation designs were by Yuichi Takahashi.
>>
>>121400285
Lucky he found a way to bypass that so that fangirls can furiously masturbate to Levi the way housewives furiously masturbate to Christian Grey
