Otnaug (@otnaug) 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
Otnaug is an artist I wasn’t able to find a lot about, but his art is spectacular so I thought I had to share his works with you all no matter what. I was captured by the sketches and the portraits, he uses many different techniques and if you take a tour in the past by scrolling a bit on his IG feed you’ll see how the style evolved over time.
All the sketches (both the colored ones and the clear ones) and the portraits look fantastic, he is a master of details and I must say I just enjoy watching at his artworks.
The first image of the girl in black and white is super nice, if you take a look at the necklace you’ll notice how something as little as a few points of light can transform the jewel into a very wonderful detail. The girl of course is so well drawn, all the proportions feel perfect and once again the small points of light touching the head and the cheek add so much three dimensionality to the artwork. It’s almost like if light here played the big role to make a brilliancy out of an already great painting.
The second pic coming from a draw this in your style challenge is just beautiful, I love the fact he took the liberty to draw the fishes and the frog they’re quite funny. The hair of the lady tho.. those are the ones that really got me, they look fantastic and all the decorations on them are amazing. I want to see this character in action now!
