Kaye Kang (@kaye_bin) 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
Kaye is a Korean artist based in San Francisco, she does character design and visual development and approaches paintings with different styles and showing a ton of expertise. On her profile you’ll find subjects of all kinds from everyday life scenes to realistic characters to cartoonish characters. Actually the characters are present in a few versions, there are some that look to me more like an oriental kind of characters, others that feel more on the western type of styles, and I find it difficult to explain the difference in feelings they give to me, I’m sorry… I guess you’re gonna have to take a look at her artworks to see if you see them differently like I do. Worst that could happen is you get to see a lot of fantastic digital paintings, so I’d say it’s totally worth it to give it a shot.
The first pic is an amazing study, I think it looks super realistic and the work on the low lights, the marks on the road left there by the tires, the plants.. are all super well thought. On top of that those are quite some windows right there, and they all feel different to each other so it definitely took her some time and effort. Also the tones she used for the buildings are so good, it’s the perfect touch for a night scene.
The second image is a thing of beauty, it’s rare to see someone introduce an element like the fence disturbing the light and she did it.. I mean.. godlike mode. The texture on the jacket is beautiful and its geometries cutted by the shadows from the fence are magnetic. The way she was able to distort and warp the dark lines create such a 3D feeling I can’t stop looking at it. The fact that the background blurs out then is the cherry on the cake, this artwork is fantastic!
