Manga Fan Brings 2D Art to Life Through Perspective

1 Gaikuo-Captain

Seeking to make himself a cool profile picture, a Chinese engineering student named Gaikuo-Captain had some fun with a camera and photoshop. He superimposed himself into illustrations of his most beloved manga and anime characters and posted his 21 images on the internet. In just a day he had received 10,000 views and a lot of fans of his work!

According to Crunchyroll:

In an interview by a local newspaper, [Gaikuo-Captain] said those characters he used in his art are the ones he dearly loves, that he considers them as a part of his life. He said it brought back many memories while working on them. He explains that he started with imagining a scene in his head then taking a photo of himself in a pose in that scene, then bringing in a photo editing program to draw onto it. Some images took multiple attempts to achieve his satisfaction. All of this attention he is receiving now is a suprise to him, since he only wanted to share the image so people can comment on the characters he loves.
