    I've been meaning to make this thread for at least 3 years now, but for some reason I never got around to it. Until today.

    This is a place to share (and discuss) art and artists you like, and stuff that inspires you in general.
    I know I love to discover new artists' work and can spend hours scrolling through the deviantArt favorites and tumblrs of other people. I also know that the bit-tech community in general has great taste and I see people buying artbooks every now and then in the Latest Purchases thread, so I'm eager to see what stuff you guys bring up.

    All images of paintings and drawings, sculpture, architecture, graphic design, etc. are welcome as long as you like it, and you think it might inspire others. :thumb:

    A few rules/guidelines:
    - Image resolution: just use common sense. Yes, I know most of us aren't on 56k modems anymore, but in most cases a crop instead of that 4K original file will suffice.
    - Attribution: if possible, provide the source of your image(s), the name of the artist and perhaps a place where they share their work (deviantArt, Tumblr, personal website/portfolio,...). If you don't know who made it, there's a good chance Google's Reverse Image Search will turn up the answer.
    - Multiple images/artists per post are allowed but again: apply common sense.

    Scott Wills, amazing background artist.
    Worked on Ren & Stimpy, Star Wars: Clone Wars and Sym-Bionic Titan, but his work is probably the most recognisable in Samurai Jack.

    A lot of his backgrounds are posted on this blog, which I think is his.

    Only a limited selection of his more recent work on his website, so a google image search is your friend.

    I love those soft watery lines. They're so loose yet controlled at the same time.

    Yes! Craig Mullins is a legend. IIRC he was one of the first people to seriously start painting digitally.
    Stuff like his work on Bioshock and Age of Empires 3 is pretty much what got me into concept art.

    Scott Robertson has a youtube channel with lots of tutorials, for those who are interested (and not subscribed already). He's a great teacher.

    Thomas Scholes
    Wonderfully unique style, instantly recognisable.
    I believe he has worked on Guild Wars 2 and one of the Halo games.

    Personal website: http://www.artofscholes.com/
    DeviantArt: http://tomscholes.deviantart.com/
    Tumblr: http://tomscholes.tumblr.com/

    He has a youtube channel too, which has some nice workflow videos (sped up and in real time!). His process is very interesting; he creates loads of reusable assets beforehand, which he then "kitbashes" to form environments.
    EDIT: I see he deleted a lot of his older videos, a shame.

    Nice! I like how it looks both drawn and painted.
    What I found quite funny is that he spent a lot of effort in painstakingly detailing all of the buildings' little ornaments, but then when he got to the individual bricks he clearly said to himself the 18th century Italian equivalent of "ain't nobody got time for this ****" and just put down a few quick vertical dashes here and there. :) (can't blame him, there are few things more tedious than drawing bricks)

    Yeah Syd Mead really is something. He did the concept art and design for Short Circuit, one of my favourite childhood movies. :)

    I think it's more a case of reflecting the prominence and unevenness of the detail through omission. It's a common technique.
    Imagine every mortar joint draw in a uniform manor on a large area of flat wall. It would just look amateurish and wrong.

    Van Eyck - The Ghent Altarpiece

    [​IMG]

    Be sure to click through for the outstanding level of detail.
    Maybe zoom in on a flower or two, or some embroidery, or a staff, or a carving, or robes, or body hair... It's just a wonderful wonderful masterpiece. I went to Ghent last year to see it.

    Amazing detail indeed, really impressive.
    The mystery around the stolen "Just Judges" panel has always fascinated me, it's like fragments of the plot of a detective novel, only real. I wonder if the panel will ever be found.

    I love how he paints in so many different styles, yet the results always look unique.

    I really like the composition in these four paintings. A "landscape" format filled with large,vertical figures is quite unusual, gives them a very solemn atmosphere IMO.
    He's also famous for his illustrations, but I don't like those half as much.

    Works at Disney Animation, was one of the main animators of Paperman and did the character designs of Big Hero 6.
    I'm always amazed at how great animators can convey so much with so few lines.
