Paint like Arthur Rackham, with Sean Andrew Murray

He's been working for the past several years on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, an action-RPG that's due out in February 2012. All artists should look beyond themselves and their contemporaries for inspiration, both in subject matter and in technique. I love line work, so it's no wonder that Rackham is one of my all-time favourite illustrators from the early 20th century. Rackham's work was a big part of how I developed my own traditional and digital painting techniques, all of which rely heavily on good drawing and well executed line work.

Dramatic Finger Paintings by Paolo Troilo

Instead of paintbrush he dips his fingertips in black and white paint and guides them across the canvas. Troilo tries to express the uncomfortable condition of being trapped in a void where the rules of society don’t apply. There are no dresses, colors, or objects, and we are liberated from useless accessories. His style developed one day, when attempting to translate his drawings into paintings. He found himself using his fingers when he couldn’t find any brushes. Like this: Like Loading...
