If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Analisa is a traditional artist based in the United Kingdom. It’s been a while and I also tend to feature digital artists a bit more (not on purpose of course, they just happen to be more frequent). This time I’m very glad I can write about Analisa cause her pieces have two wonderful traits: first of all she is precise and knows very well how to draw human figures, in particular the face but there’s room for hands and bodies too in her posts. Second trait is the meaning she gives to her art. I haven’t seen very many pieces “just cause why not” and to me that indicates a sort of maturity in the drawing technique, she doesn’t need to “exercise” so she can focus on the emotions or the thoughts her artwork will convey. Then of course I believe every time you pick up the pencil you’re about to practice in some way, even if you’re creating the ultimate masterpiece you’ll end up learning something, but she definitely crossed the line of having to learn things and is now fully living her artistic inspirations.
The first piece is an amazing display of skills, this pencil drawing is not the only one she shared featuring complex and intricate shapes for the hair hiding wonderful little fishes. I love how they seem to live so well together with the lines and also the fact she used some little overlays to give them a clear position in space. They look like they’re swimming out of the lines, so cool!
The second piece is part of a series of 3, it’s graphite on Moleskine and the project is to deconstruct the human face. I like the line of taking away some of the major organs that usually let us experience the world. This is what I was talking about, the drawings are making me think a lot on what she wanted to tell, and I love it.
