David Zecua (@daviddoodlez) is my pick for today’s talent!
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
David is an illustrator also working on his 3D animation career. His profile on IG is very interesting and super funny, at least for me, cause he’s always posting some original fan art and I love them. There’s also quite a bit of matching between the shows or movies he refers to compared to the ones I like so it makes the feed even better, I scroll through the images and keep seeing better and better illustrations.
I especially like the fact that he doesn’t try to “copy” the characters, but rather gives his best to make an original illustration where you still get the reference 100% of the times. It could be obvious, but I still think it’s worth it to mention it. I have the feeling online someone illustrating a “perfect” superhero would get a lot of attention, when I instead vote for artists like David and artworks like his.
The first image here I found extra funny and well done, it’s obviously from “Up” but the timing was perfect cause he gave him the Bernie Sanders’ famous pose and look after we’ve all seen the meme and the jokes around it. You know I think he wanted to steal a smile from the audience and I’m here to tell him he can add one to the list. It’s also a very cute illustration on its own, even forgetting the meme part!
The second image is spectacular! Wanda and Vision on the famous Klimt pose (from his “The Kiss” masterpiece). David likes the show a lot and I have to say it’s been one of my favorites too, I absolutely love every choice they made starting from the 60s atmosphere to the story and everything in between. This illustration is fantastic and if you’re a fan too I suggest you take a look at the original post on IG cause there’s a “glitchy” surprise for you there!
