Anime-Inspired Drawings & Illustrations
Here is a collection of my favorite anime-inspired illustrations from artists all over the world.
I know there are many of you out there that love drawing illustrations and sketches inspired by the anime style or less realistic styles – So I hope seeing artists who have successfully made this their dream job inspires you to continue practicing and crating your own unique forms of artwork.
Perhaps one day, you can also create art as a way of living as well!
Links are provided below the images, so make sure to visit the artist’s page, like and support their works! Share the love!
Here are some illustrations created by Jiwoon Pak – I absolutely love the surreal worlds that are created, along with the muted, almost melancholy colors Jiwoon uses. Make sure to check out the website here and click here for Jiwoon’s Instagram!
Here are some oh, so magical anime-inspired scenes created by 防人 on Pixiv.
Here are several works from 優 on Pixiv. I love the more darker colors that are incorporated in these works. The feeling behind these works are so unique to the artist.
Here are several stunning illustrations from Xuan Loc Xuan. Find more works from Xuan here through Behance.
Some of my favorite things across Xuan Loc Xuan’s pieces are the use of texture that makes Xuan’s works so unique to Xuan. I also love the bright, airy feel I get from each of the works through the colors used. It is definitely light on the heart – and I love that feeling.
These two are gorgeous anime digital drawings from 芦屋マキ on Pixiv. I love the underwater-scapes that are frequently used in many of the pieces. Make sure to check out their page for more works!
Here are two gorgeous illustrations from Choi Mi Kyung – Visit her Instagram here and her website for more stunning works!
I absolutely love the minimal style of her works, along with the use of more muted colors to bring a more softer feel to viewers of Mi Kyung’s art.
These beautiful drawings are created by Tofuvi on Pixiv.
Tofuvi has such a unique style of drawing and coloring that I love! Make sure to check out her Pixiv profile for more of her beautiful creations!
Here are some gorgeous anime-inspired digital drawings from 飴村 on Pixiv. I love the level of detail in each of these works, the colors, as well as the world-making. It all adds to that magical, other-worldly feeling that comes along with Anime.
Here are several digital anime drawings from Re from Pixiv.
What I love about Re’s drawings are that despite the use of colors being very light, the feeling behind each of the works is sad and tragic. There is something potent and heart-stopping about that.
Here are several anime-inspired digital drawings from Y_Y on Pixiv. He has so many works on his Pixiv so make sure to check out his beautiful digital creations there.
Y_Y uses a lot of darker colors in his works, but that just makes his use of light in each work stand out even more – so much so that the feeling behind is works don’t feel dark at all.
