THE MASTER OF Z-DEPTH
Kazuki Takamatsu is a japanese artist that mixes acrilic painting with the 3d technic of z-depth. This technic allows cg artist to recreate the effect of the depth of field in render or animations.
Z-depth is a map in black and white that works in this way: what inside the image is black appears nearer, what is white is farther and the grey tones in the middle make the sense of depth in the whole image. This is the traditional way but it works also with the contra.
This is Tazuki’s case. He make all of this with paint and his beautiful subjects are usually dolls that seems floating in a non well-defined space, in a pure expression of innocence that hardly hides a vision of a world violent and dark.
