Daily Deviation

First of all, the texture is amazing. I like how you made the patterns closer together in the darker sections, and farther apart from each other in the lighter sections. I like how the pattern spirals, but not in a smooth way. I like how the spirals have sharp edges at the point where they turn. The effect of it gives it a nice geometric look to it. Overall, the use of texture is amazing, and the colors blend in perfectly. I think this could still use a few extra patterns here and there, but otherwise, keep up the great work!
What do you think?

It started out as a line drawing in pencil. Then I went over it in pen, erasing the pencil as I went, and filling in the patterns.

Have you tried experimenting with different formats, or leaving open more space?
Reply
:iconpromethicon:
Promethicon Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
To an extent, yes. The lighter spaces are the result of my experimentation with different patterns. However, I have always used rectangular formats and have always filled most or all of the available space with my patterning.

I don't know if you are making a point of repeating yourself with the same formats and motivs, but I definetly think you can profit on experimenting further with stretching out the lines, making some even smaller, leaving empty space or solid areas of color. Or drawing installation even outside the flat paper! 
I've just had kind of an epiphany on the huge potential on drawing myself.

I think you've got a point; I think I'll try to experiment more with the medium itself in the future. There is great potential for art outside of the boxes I make for myself.

Drawing is a medium with absolutely infinite potential, so there is not a point in restricting oneself without reason! I flipped through the book Vitamin D(book full of amazing drawers, a must have), and I found a few people that might be in the same area as you. Of course not exactly the same, but check them outand maybe you find some points of interest. Frances Richardson, James Siena and maybe even Daniel Zeller.

Okay, thanks. I'll take a look at them. It's always nice to meet someone (online or otherwise) with whom I can carry on an intelligent conversation about art!

Yes, let me know what you think of them! Not that I know a lot abut either of the artists, but they have a few pages each in the book I mentioned. I agree! Most of the times, deviantart is not really the place for art or art talks, I think.

Having looked at some of the work of those artists, I must say I like them. There are definitely some similarities between their work and mine. Thank you for telling me about them.

I guess you're right.  If I never started drawing terribly and kept on drawing until I improved, I would have never been able to make animations.  Thanks ^^

Thank you! Although, to be clear, the others in the series are digital edits of the original, and not drawings themselves.
