Shingo Araki has died today, 1st december 2011, at the age of 72 y.o.
He was the genius who turned into cartoons, many Japanese manga: Versailles no Bara, Devilman, Babil Junior and Saint Seiya (Probably The Most known)!
But for me he was much more: Shingo Araki was the person who, through his works, lit in me the passion of the design definitively. He was one of my biggest inspirations, the one I am most deeply tied because he is the one I took inspiration for the characterization of the human body.
I think this is one of those sad news that must be written here, also on DT: I think I'm not the only one artist in the world (also in the microstock world) that have to say "thank you" to him.
Thank you for all!
