This image, Girl and Hercules Beetle, is by the artist Barnaby Ward aka, Somefield. He often makes drawings of girls with varying animals in the compositions. Some of his work is very intricate and detailed, while I tend to be more attracted to his simpler compositions, like this one. There is little variation in line weight, yet still heavy contrasting light and dark areas; which helps the image not feel too empty. The color is limited to the girls eyeliner and her scarf. This almost makes the scarf the focal point of the image. But the placement of the beetle, with its horn protruding so far away from her hunched position, creates a more general interesting form. So even though the scarf is the brightest thing you see, your eyes have multiple things to be entertained by. There is no tonal volume in the drawing, and there are also no areas of white. The pale yellow backdrop makes this image kind of serene and soft, it is one of my favorite colors as well. I also admire the rough texture of the beetle and her shoes. The image, though completely flat and stylized, does communicate some sense of dimension because of his careful usage of color and texture. It's so simple, and so nice.
