Artist's Inspiration

Greetings all. We have a new series for you. Artist's Inspiration is written to highlight several art based articles at once. Each article we feature at least 3 sketchbooks from different sites that are in some way note worthy. We also search out interesting articles from news sites to help inspire you. There is even a section highlighting interesting art books.

Without further delay here is your first dose of Artist's Inspiration.

Sketchbooks

Sketchbook: If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six hours sharpening my axe
Artist:  Spudonkey
Site: Imagine FX
Link: http://community.imaginefx.com/forums/13/378706/ShowThread.aspx

Spudonkey has a really quirky style which looks fantastic. Line art is crisp and clean. The sketchbook has a great combination of studies and imaginative pieces.







Sketchbook: Vices Sketchbook
Artist: Vice
Site: Conceptart.org
Link: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?200074-Vices-Sketchbook/page8

Worth a visit just for the shear amount of studies. You can tell Vice is a hard worker. It would be nice to see more of an emphasis on shading studies as I feel he is pretty confident with anatomy. Also brush confidence could use some work in places but these are little things. Cannot wait to visit this sketchbook again in a few weeks time.








Star Sketchbook.

Sketchbook: Garret AJ's Sketchbook nonsense
Artist: Garret AJ
Site: CGHub
Link: http://cghub.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13771

Fantastic colours, great variety of works, and amazingly realised finished pieces. Really impressive works from start to finish. Garret is extremely talented, especially when it comes to colour, producing to very eye catching pieces.
