More digital sketches......


I have recently been inspired by the works of Beksinski to try to more solidly define my level of fantasy surrealism. Beksinski had an amazing ability to give you just enough reality to make you think that maybe his visions could actually be alive on some distant planet, or in some alternate reality.... at least during his "fantastic" period. Not so, in my opinion, with a lot of other surrealists. Even Giger's work can drift too far towards the abstract for my taste. I think a good rule of thumb is: 70% fantasy, 30% surrealism... well, for me anyway. I'm excited about sketching this way, I could see taking any one of these and doing them up in a style like the Globe Chaser. At least, that is what I am going to try.

I totally agree about the 70% fantasy and 30% real. The contrast in your shapes and colors are real nice. Rock on!

Hey Sean, the atomsphere in these are great! I really like the first and fourth piece on there. I do think the fourth piece can be pushed further with a more dynamic angle perspective to really show that thing coming to life. But great sketches duuude.
