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!
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.
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.
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.
