We are rolling along with more art from Collateral Damage Studios, and today I'm honestly excited to show off some work from TC, founder of CDS. Just look at this stuff: there's a level of detail within the watercolor-esque pictures here that just makes each thing look so impressive. There's subtle blur, harsh exposure and tricks with the coloring that makes each piece have it's own incredible amount of feel and polish when looking at them.
Now, aside from the art, if there's anything that I can praise about TC's work, it's the material that he draws from: stuff like Cencoroll, Ghost in the Shell, Madoka Magica, some Warhamer 40K (!), and a lot of Asuka Langley... it's almost like this stuff was catered for me to love the crap out of this dudes art.
Don't miss out on this stuff: there's nearly a hundred other pieces on TC's Pixiv account, but if you're too impatient for that, quickly catch up on some of the highlights below the jump.
CDS is a Singapore-based doujin circle that was founded when a bunch of artistically inclined friends decided to do something new. With lofty aims of conquering the local art scene and the excuse to draw pretty anime girls (or guys) all the time, the circle had grown over the years to include a diverse team of illustrators and had done plenty of doujins/ fan products for fans and otakus. The crowning glory of it all is the Superscenic 2 artbook that collects the original and commissioned artworks that the team had done from 2010 to 2012.
