Hello everyone, tonight I’ve planned on introducing an artist who I’ve apparently have been following on Facebook for the past two years without any recollection of. Now, I reintroduced myself to this artist by finding some of his work on ArtStation, so it’s not like I just randomly went through a list of my liked pages. Today I introduce the artist, Victor Mosquera, a concept artist currently working at Ubisoft Toronto.
On a related note for myself anyways, today in my art course, I learned about the subject of photo-bashing. I know I’ve already talked about the subject here, so I don’t plan on explaining it again today, but Victor’s style consists of photo-bashing/textures. It’s something that can achieve incredible results, and create a more realistic standpoint for your picture. Some people are quick at creating good uses for this technique, and some are slow, regardless, if the end results are good, it’s a success. I’d recommend the artist’s in the group here to try it out. Paint something and use photos to create realism, or use photos to start up an image, so you can cover it with paint.
Here is a good video for creating environment thumbnails with photos.
Well, I hope everyone enjoys Victor’s work, and I’ll see you all next week.
Are cats the secret for good art or writing? All I can say is that mine doesn’t help.
