Illustrator Turns Strangers Into Anime Characters
American artist Robert DeJesus continues to transform perfect strangers' photos into anime versions of themselves (previously here) and we thought it's high time to look at his new character designs. "I got into drawing and Anime during high school," DeJesus told Bored Panda. "Dr. Slump and Akira were the very first manga I owned and collected."
"Years later, when I started attending anime/manga shows as a guest around the US, the Anime drawings became a favorite with my followers and since then I kept making them." Now, Robert offers custom anime character portraits on his eBay store, where people can participate in auctions if they want a personal pencil drawing. "I wish I could draw all of [the requests], but I fear I’ll get burned out trying. My plan was to do these pencil sketches as a side thing to help fund the other projects I am also dying to work on."
