"Reincarnation: A Dance of Yin and Yang" created by Kevin Ngo
A few words from Kevin, "I'm an artist who loves to tell a story that brings a deeper message, strong emotions, and fully expresses creativity without playing it safe!"
Greetings ladies and gentlemen, my name is Kevin Ngo. So, what I've worked on is a series of characters from my epic adult science fantasy romance series. The story of Reincarnation: A Dance of Yin and Yang takes place in an Asiatic-like fictional world called Mortal World (or Mortal Realm), home to humans, animals, and spirits. The story is centered around the eight young adults from different nations and clans of two separate teams; Holy Beasts and Fiend Beasts. I made these images with colored pencils, watercolors, acrylic ink, acrylic paint, acrylic paint markers, and oil pastels. The inspiration for this project came from, tokusatsu, the martial arts films of Ang Lee and Bruce Lee, Akira Kurosawa’s samurai films, xianxia, and anime/manga. I’m also inspired by the Star Wars Original Saga (1-6), Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. The main reason I created this series of artwork is to showcase that creativity can still make something new and fresh without relying on existing intellectual property or being unoriginal or creatively bankrupt (cough Di$ney cough). I'm an artist who loves to tell a story that brings a deep message, strong emotions, and fully expresses creativity without playing it safe, or bowing down to censorship, cancel culture, and political correctness fear-mongering bullies. This reflects my project's themes of authoritarianism / totalitarianism, extremism, political power, corruption, indoctrination, war and censorship. But at the same time, I would like to highlight; love, freedom, hope, family, humanity, balance, and the strengths of traditional masculinity and femininity. I hope you enjoy my art, I hope this inspires you to create your own vision, style, and creativity.
