Digital Paints and a Portrait... HURRAY!


Here we go again... more and more art over and over!


This week's Artist of the Week! goes to Ben_Olson over on concept art!
Not only is this artist impressive with their varying style, but they have a great tendancy to delve into the realms of strange and weird. His art tends to have this almost watercolor look to it with the stylistic flourishes of his digital paints. Not only that, but he seems to have good control over his pencil work as well... if you look on the last page of his sketchbook (posted above), he has some gestural drawings as well from life. This guy seems to have a great grasp on it all. Keep it up!
So this week has been filled with work... mainly really delving into digital painting hard! You'll see some of the experiments that I've been doing below. Maybe some critiques would do me well.

Life Drawing at MCA has come to a close yesterday, so unfortunately I'll have to start just doing my own drawings on the side (even though I do that already).

Either way, I'll probably just go ahead and dive right into the post as I have a ton of work to get done.

Here we go...

Scale: 5" x 7"

Notes: We actually used a regular old stick that we found, carved it into a brush type shape and then painting with ink on paper. It was a very unique and interesting concept for me and I think I might try doing more of this...
