The Artist at Play by TheVisualGuy The Artist at Play by TheVisualGuy
This piece is a first for me as it marks the first time I attempted to scan an original sketchbook drawing into the computer where I then finished it in Illustrator. Normally my digital art pieces are started and finished in the computer.

I had a ton of fun working on it and can't wait for the next one to come.

Pencil>Illustrator CS


EDIT: My first DD!! Thank you everyone for the appreciation...it means a lot. Getting recognized for doing what you love is AWESOME. Also thanks to Ryshu [link] for the submission

The Artist at Play by =TheVisualGuy. ~ryshu writes, "The stylistic approach portrays an understated 80's retro aesthetic that's difficult to not be charmed by, while the composition and extreme amount of detail invite the viewer to come in and stay a while."

This is a fun picture. Having all the hardware and blueprints neatly organized makes it seem like the project wouldn't be too difficult to carry out. Your attention to detail is really amazing when noticing said prints with their graphs and numbers drawn on them. And to me, I like how the two spools placed underneath the chest form a face of sorts with the unattached waist. It makes a nice focal point. Overall, excellent picture.

Felicitations on making the DD list. :)

Haha, thanks. I make attempts to explain what I like about a picture instead of falling back on simple "that's good" and such. :laughing: But, you're welcome. :)

Yeah, love Cowboy Bebop as well. (Took me a while to figure out why you brought that up. =p)

Woah! The detail on the tiny pieces is amazing, dude. Love the colors too, blue and technology have always mixed well to me (I've been spending too much time at Best Buy).
I definitely deserves the Daily Devaint! :D
