So I FINALLY finished the Style exercise! It was so fun! I couldn’t stahp!
This time around I practiced with the style of the AMAZING Nargyle
Everything this woman draws is fun and interesting to look at. I love the way she uses angles and curves to compliment and work with one another. It gives her designs a very unique silhouette.
I had originally thought I didn’t have much to learn from a style like Nargyle’s simply because her designs were so different from my own. But now having done this exercise, I’ve realized just HOW much I can soak up from her art.
She is a MASTER of body language, her characters always have this delicious sense of movement and her action poses are so fluid and dynamic. I once read in Tom Bancroft’s Creating Characters with Personality (excellent book btw) about how important “pushing” you’re design to its full potential is. And I can think of no other artist that pushes their characters to the brink of awesome like Nargyle does!
Least to say, Nargyle is amazing and if your aren’t already watching her than you should get on it because you WON’T regret it. Of all my favorite artists, I’d like to see her art style animated the most.
Also I REALLY need to do more action stuff, because its the cat’s pajamas
