Hmm, I don't really see it reedo. They do share some similarities in that both Aitor and Shinkawa use sketching as their primary artistic vehicle, but other than that, Shinkawa is primarily brush, Aitor is pencil, ink and marker. I also feel that a lot of Shinkawa's art is about mood and ambience and not necessarily the details or the human form as such. Much more similar to ukiyo-e print style work and of course the works of Yoshitaka Amano. His characters also lack the degree of motion that Aitor's possess. A lot more static poses and pastiches of 60s/70s spy-fi promo art.
I would say that Aitor does bear a resemblance to the art of Ashley Wood who has done some work on Metal Gear Solid as well (I think he did all the comic cutscene art for Peace Walker on the PSP among other things) even though most (all?) of the work he puts out is painted.
Yeah I saw those actually, but neither are in my size
. I got in touch with darklands a year or two ago now about picking up a pair of the trumpet pants, but the 50 had gone by then and I was assured that the 48 would be too small for me, lol. I did see the calf pocket trouser in a 50 on Superfuture a couple of months ago...don't think anybody picked it up.
I also think I will just save up for AW13. Means very few purchases until then lol. Maybe we could start a "No-cop until Aitor Throup AW13 club"
