Damn Skippy. This one took 21 hours and 47 minutes to finish.
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!
The Artist thought this was FAIR
9 out of 9 deviants thought this was fair.
How did you do that? thats amazing!
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.
I really like this work, man!
ERMERGERD this is just too amazign
Soo beautiful. Transfixed.
Have you tried experimenting with different formats, or leaving open more space?
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.
Amazing! I wrote a critiques on this, but I'm not very good at critiquing at all.
It's alright. You have to start somewhere. You'll get better at it with practice.
How much time did this take?!
21 hours and 47 minutes, spread out over about a month.
LOL at the title! )
Impressive job! Was it 21h47 in a row? That'd be some dedication and eye destruction
No, it was spread out over about a month. I would work for maybe an hour at a time.
Flashy tiles! (=
hOLY DICK HOW DID YOU E VEN
ALSO MIGHT I ASK HOW BIG THIS IS?
Cool. congratulations on the DD! and I love the title
Congratulations on the Daily Deviation!
