"Morality & Dicipline" Digital Illustrations
There are many, many great artists out there, and it's kinda impossible to know all of them... but it's pretty great to get to know a super badass artist that you didn't know before. For me, Russian artist Yuri Shwedoff is one of these talented people, and I'm glad I found him. Here you can see his super mesmerizing work. These are some pretty awesome compositions, with some great storytelling behind. I'd love to learn more about the idea behind these.
How do you like old school, vintage illustrations? I really dig old magazines with ads featuring illustrations instead of actual photos due to the lack of technology back then, and it's great to see that some artists also enjoy that. Timba Smits comes up with some super stylish, quirky illustrations. These are super great, and you can see that he really enjoys this vintage style. Great technique also! His choice of colors is definitely remarkable. These are only a handful of his works...
On of the coolest things in action comics are the showdowns! Different characters, whether with special powers or magnificent weapons, facing each other in a deadly battle. Sanford Greene has done some super cool battle scenes between Marvel characters. Here you can see his pieces. Pretty dope, huh? For more of his work, please visit his portfolio at DeviantART. He'll definitely enjoy it. Cheers! ;)
