Week 1-Artist found on Tumblr
The only name I have for this artist is their Tumblr name which is:
http://thedarlingandthedirty.tumblr.com/, on there they have more artwork. I chose this particular image because of the style it is drawn in. With my drawings I often like to use more of an organic line style and varying line weights. Though this is not the only reason I chose this artist, I was drawn to this work (all of the artists work really) because of the grotesqueness of the drawing. In the last few weeks I have tried to draw some of my own works with this same style, the open mouths with uneven teeth and skin with age lines covering it. The piercings covering their faces are also something I add into many of the faces I do in my own drawings, there are just many comparisons that I can make to my own work but at the same time I don't think I am any where near as close to gold as this artist is. In the end I just think the tiny little details in the lines are what really make the piece great, a lot of times there can be too much going on or too little but there is just enough here.
