And not just monsters and robots, they draw from referance and life, they study real world fauna, flora and cultures. So I decided to go back to drawing, no concepts for now (ok maybe just one but its a WIP.. and to justify it its been inspired by the drawing... ok I know thats a crap exscuse but your on the other end of a computer screen and I dont truly have to explain my self to you ;) )so I've been sketching away looking through the increasingly vast library of natural history books that I've been collecting sinse I was born. Im finally doing what I said i would do with these books, use them for drawing.
At the same time I've also been trying to break away from my traditional style of drawing which seems to involve far too many horendously straight lines. Wether or not I've succeded in doing that is up for you to decide.
Heres some DA pages of artists I've been looking at.
All are incredible artists in their own right. Theres also my two biggest inspirations aswell, Wayne Barlowe and Kieth thompson, both are professional concept artists/illustrators and their work is unbeliviable, not only do they have the skills but they have unique imaginations. They represent everything I like about concept art in that they can create truly original worlds that we can still relate to in some form or other.
And danny I didnt forget bout the address, just got it off Ash now. It's Bennett St. SK14 4TQ (inside the uppercut Barbers)
Heres one of the tattoo designs I've done, I've never coloured one of these designs before so I'm not entirely sure that I've done it right, crits would be much appreciated on this and the drawings above aswell.
