Russian Illustrator and Comic Artist based in Yokohama – Ilya Kuvshinov
The photo on this page of ILYA KUVSHINOV appears to be the only one that exists of him online. It’s from an Interview he did with Russian website, Render.ru. All artwork photos are from his Patreon page, where you can show your support for him and his work.
HOW I FOUND HIM
I found Ilya via DeviantArt. I can’t remember which painting it was, most likely one of his Persona 4 paintings, but he was one of those people who once I saw his work I clicked the watch button and started following him without even thinking about it. I seem to love everything he creates. Whenever a new piece of his pops up on Instagram I can always tell it’s an Ilya, he has a really nice style :)
HOW HIS ART MAKES ME FEEL
WHAT I'VE LEARNT AFTER STUDYING HIS ARTWORK
After studying Ilya’s work I’ve come away with a greater appreciation of his ability to create beautiful eyes that seem to capture deep emotions. So inviting. The characters he creates are just that … characters. Characters that I want to know more of. Want to see more of. Each girl he creates seems to come with bags of emotion, individuality and stories to tell. Some of these characters I could see having their own comic book or Anime.
Visually I find his work incredibly tasty, the colours, the lighting, even the sceneries he picks. I just find them syncing up in a way that really speaks to me. I always look forward to seeing Ilyas new paintings. For me it’s all in the eyes, they say that eyes are the windows to the soul, well with Ilya, he doesn’t just open up the characters souls but somehow manages to connect with my soul too.
