After having a chat with Stas I decided I need to be more free and have my own style because in my previous work it is very unoriginal and straight down the middle using soft shading and simple round brushes.
To vary my style I first need to look at other artists work and imitate it into a piece of my own, first of all I will look for some artists/illustrators styles I like then later try to do them myself, this will help me get out of my own habits and find my own style I like.
I tried to find different to styles I already do and lots of variety.
Avner Geller is currently working as a Visual Development Artist at DreamWorks Animation. Geller has created concepts, color keys and character designs for DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
His art is very cartoony and over exaggerated which is different to what I normally do so will look forward to trying to imitate his style. He uses nice and bright colours and is never realistic with. He often does his art work from stuff that happens to him in the street or things that have happened to him in the past for example he did a bunch of stuff on conversations he had heard in the street while out.
Miquel Montlló is a Spanish comic artist and illustrator based in Berlin, Germany. Miki is currently working on his own comic book, Warship Jolly Roger
Miki’s work like Avner’s is also cartoon like but instead of having un human-like and over exaggeated features they are closer to the real human anatomy while staying cartoony. I liked looking at the hollywood monsters concepts and progress on how he made and developed each character.
Jamel Akib was born in Leigh-on-sea, Essex, England, on the 4th November 1965 to mixed English and Malaysian parentage.
He moved to Sabah, North Borneo at the age of five and returned to England to pursue further education at the age of thirteen
He gained a BA honours Degree in Illustration in 1989.
I really like Jamel’s style of work it looks very free which I feel like I need to practice on as I am very reserved with my work. With his sweeping brush strokes, you can tell from Jamel Akib’s energetic illustrations how passionate he is about painting. He loves the feel of paint on the brush and its naturally pleasing effect on canvas. I will be imitating his work in traditional style as he does.
Is a Japanese manga author from Satte,Saitama, Japan. He is perhaps best known as the creator of a four-panel comic strip Lucky Star which has been serialized in Kadokawa Shoten’s Comptiq magazine since January 2004. He is also credited for creating Comptiq’smascot character Comp-chan
I really like to watch anime and I like the style so I decided to put a manga artist in here to replicate his work and to try it myself as again it is nothing like what I usually create with my own work.
