Piotr Jabłoński


I was inspired by Piotr Jabłoński. The man is the art equivalent of the Terminator. Tireless, merciless, unstoppable. He uses de-saturated colour palettes with splashes of intense colour, and limits his value range to create some really subtle paintings.

I started this on Sunday evening. I don't know what the hell it is to be honest hahaha

But I hope it seems Jabłoński-ish.

Alphonse Marie Mucha

One hour ago I remembered that tomorrow is the deadline for this month's theme. Here's my very, very quick tribute to Mucha, the first artist that I have seen in my childhood. My mother painted on glass a copy of the painting that inspired this little drawing.

Ridley Scott

The visuals in his films are great but he's also a great drawer and does a lot of storyboard panels. I'm trying to capture the style of them here.

Rebecca and Steven Sugar




I've a lot of love for Rebecca Sugar, who built a wonderful show based on her brother, Steven! Said Steven is the lead background designer on the show, and his stuff is phenomenal! Super inspiring!

X-Men: The Animated Series

Got inspired by Joe Madureira, Carlos Pacheco, Stuart Immonen, and  X-Men: The Animated Series of course!

Alphonse Mucha and Ray Harryhausen

Georgia O'Keefe

One of my favourite artists is Georgia O'Keefe, I love her use of colour and how she paints landscapes and flowers. She has always been a real inspiration to my work.

Welcome Back Bouldermedia Artblog-New Theme!!!!

Hi Everyone,

A huge welcome back and an even bigger welcome to some new members of the Bouldermedia Artblog. I am delighted to announce that the Artblog is back up and running after a few little changes.

The rules are basically the same:
  • One theme running for roughly one month.
  • Themes are to be stuck to as near as possible.
  • Any medium will be accepted.
  • Keep it clean, this is a professional Artblog!
  • You can post as many times as you wish.
  • All submissions are to be done in your own time and you are not under any obligation to submit, this is all a bit of fun, so don't put yourself under any unnecessary pressure.

There will be an inhouse vote done in Boulder at the end of the month and the winner will receive a prize for their work!!! This is a chance for Boulder creatives to showcase some of their personal work.



So without further adu, let's be having the first Artblog theme:
  • Artists/Artist who inspire me
Good Luck and I cannot wait to see what you guys post over the next month.

Gill.

Iorek Byrnison


Thought I'd best post a picture of an actual bear too. Here's a smudgy charcoal drawing of the armoured bear from 'His Dark Materials (the awesome book version not the crappy movie).

The Old Bear

A very liberal interpretation of this month's theme; The Old Bear, Commander Mormont from 'Game of Thrones'.

Bear Story


I'll kick this theme off with a story. In the Lorena Province of Afghanistan in 2001, or thereabouts, a toddler belonging to a nomadic tribe wandered off from his tent and was missing for three days. He was eventually found, safe and well, in the hills miles away, in the cave of a she-bear. The bear was curled protectively around the child and had apparently been nursing him. He was taken home to his relieved parents; no record seems to exist however for what happened to the bear. One likes to hope for the best.

The Thin White Duke

Mr. Boo-ie

This was the first weekend I got a chance to finish this stuff off. 

I thought I’d do something a bit more grown up.  This comes from his Lazarus vid, loved the lighting in that and wanted to do most recent Boo-ie.   (He said himself once even he didn’t know how to pronounce that.  He thought “Bowie” was a Scottish name and did actually think it was pronounced “Boo-ie”, but I just say it that way because I’m being deliberately stupid)



..but then,  there’s only so much grown-upness one can take…

Rey Sketches

Doesn't look anything like Rey, but you get the idea...wicked character nonetheless!

Also, here's a Darth Maus sketch:

Darth Dominator


I've wanted to do more fan art of Wander and Star Wars, so I figured it made sense to kill two birds with the one stone!

Dark VS Light


If you kinda squint your metaphorical eyes, these guys have a lot in common with Darth Vader and Luke, aside from the obvious, Lord Vader rhyming with Lord Hater. One determined to hate, the other running around helping space folks. They also traverse the galaxies thwarting each other and/or trying to get along with each other. Not the most ingenious mash-up, admittedly, but I certainly had fun with it! - Lynn

Something for the Star Wars theme. Not sure what this Star Wars thing is. People really should talk about these things more.
