This week Rooster Teeth is pleased to present James Flames’ “Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang Forever”. James has been doing really great work this year for artists like Phish and the Avett Brothers. There’s a real whimsy in his illustration that matches well with the world of RWBY and Brian of Roosterteeth thinks that holds true in the final piece.
Here’s what James had to say about his print.
“I’ve been captivated by the Forever Fall forest ever since watching that episode – there’s something so magical about it, and I knew right away it would be the perfect setting for my RWBY print. I thought it would look really cool to combine the leaves of Forever Fall with Ruby’s cape to create a dancing pattern of brush strokes all around. And I also wanted to give a glimpse into each of the four girls’ well-defined personalities – Ruby playfully hanging from the tree limb, daydreaming of becoming a Huntress; Yang flat-out ready to throw down; Weiss looking un-amused, as if there might be better things for her to do; and Blake, ever soft spoken, but ready to pounce at a moment’s notice. I drew the entire scene by hand with india ink and a fine brush, and I hand-printed each piece of the edition using 5 colors on French Paper.”
“Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang Forever” is a 5-color 18x24 screen print and is a signed and numbered edition of 250. $59.95
