Sparthing Around.

Concept artist Nicolas Bouvier, aka Sparth has a new art book out: Structura 3.

I really admire his work. It can be quite graphic and messy but the viewers brain resolves this into wildly detailed images. The sort of thing that would take me months or years to create seems to take him no time at all. Pfff.

But wait! The book contains some of his techniques so the image below is my attempt at his smudge tool technique.

I used Manga studio rather than Photoshop, so I’m not sure I have exactly the same control or quality, but the results are interesting. Something to explore further, but I find the whole messy thing challenging after so many years.  You wouldn’t think so looking at my desk!
