dA Tuesday: Stylized Characters
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but what about people who don’t imitate and instead make their own style? Carving your own stylistic features into illustrated characters can be the most difficult road an artist can drive down. To create a distinctive style, an artist has to first understand all the basics of anatomy, perspective, composition and more. Only then can they twist, exaggerate, and truncate that information they’ve acquired to come up with their own design. Here are 10 great examples of highly stylized characters
from artists on DeviantART.
