Alright so to better understand art and specifically digital painting and drawing, I'll be copying the styles of some of my favorite artists on DeviantArt. This is not to steal any of their work. All the pieces I post on here will be an original concept while they may have certain aspects of the artist I referenced. I will not copy any piece in its entirety. Period.
so in short please don't think I'm doing this to steal the hard work put in by other artists, I'm doing this to better develop my own style. I'm not good at deadlines but I'm setting one for myself. Next week I'll have a couple pieces inspired by the beautiful kawiku!
If you don't know who this artist is I highly suggest you get around to changing that. Kawiku likes drawing vividly colorful pictures of fictional creature's she has made up. Her creatures are fantastic and her style is gorgeous. This girl knows her color theory and it shows. Every one of her pieces features gorgeous color on creatures whose designs range from simple puff balls to complex gazelle-like animals.
I've already sketched out a couple of my own animals. They're not any species she's created though they do use body parts and techniques from her pieces.
Well here we go. Expect something next week and please hold me to it. Thanks and please comment, what do you think of this project? I want to go through this process with several of my favorite deviantArt artists. I'm trying specifically to focus on character drawing and painting. Would you like to join in on the fun?
