Dessiner une fille gothique Nous allons voir étape par étape comment dessiner une fille "gothique" dans un style très influencé par les créations japonaises sur ce thème. Le noir est essentiel dans le style gothic, il est donc temps de placer un maximum de noir sur votre dessin, mais sachez bien gérer des zones de lumières pour ne pas «l’alourdir». Quand j’ai placé les grandes lignes de mon style, je peux repasser le tout dans les détails. Ce style s’accomode très bien de petits détails soignés, donc n’hésitez pas à aller dans ce sens.

Mathematical Art of M.C. Escher For me it remains an open question whether [this work]pertains to the realm of mathematics or to that of art. —M.C. Escher Introduction Self Portrait, 1948 Maurits Cornelis Escher created unique and fascinating works of art that explore and exhibit a wide range of mathematical ideas. He was born in Leeuwarden, Holland in 1898, and when he was in school his family planned for him to follow his father’s career of architecture. His work went almost unnoticed until the 1950’s, but by 1956 he had given his first important exhibition, was written up in Time magazine, and acquired a world-wide reputation. Escher-like motif on a building in The Hague, Netherlands. His work eventually appeared not only in printed form, but as commissioned or imitative sculptures on public buildings, as decorations on everything from neckties to mousepads, and in software written to automate the reproduction and manipulation of tesselations.
