I thought I had asgr (or あさぎり) figured out — dark, machine-horror, with lots of black, orange, and red. They have proven me wrong.
Asgr is defining a new aesthetic not only for their own art but for the entire genre. I don’t know exactly what to call it, but it is still on the darker-side… just without as much darkness anymore. Futuristic machinery is still a pretty important part of each piece, but it isn’t exactly serving the same role anymore. Their new color scheme that involves a lot more white/off-white, as well as bits of blue, is working extremely well with the style, and is also giving some nice contrast to their past work which used a lot more black. And their intricate details and rich textures are as beautiful as ever.
UPDATE: Thanks to some of you, asgr’s new Pixiv has been located, as well as their Tumblr. (also, I switched one of the images for a newer one)
