    A lot of you are artists. After digging through some of TIG's backlogs, I've come to realise that a lot of you are also pretty good.

    This is the Artist Corner, where members of TIG can post their artwork, or websites, tips, useful tutorials or guidelines and sketches, like: How should someone practice anatomy? Is there any good reference on vanishing points? What kinds of paper and pencil do you use, or which tablet is most useful?

    You can also post some of your favourite paintings and illustrations - or other piece of beautiful art.

    I'll get the ball rolling by posting some of my favourites. (Note: not artwork. I'm not that good yet, but feel free to post yours.) In each case I'll post only some of my favourite pieces by respective artist, mostly because some of these outdo themselves everytime.

    Digital:
    World War Z - The Battle of Yonkers by Dan Luvisi

    Apocalypse Please by Dan Luvisi

    The Final Challenge by Dan Luvisi

    WhaleBoy by Bobby Chiu.

    Big Bad Bunny Eater by Bobby Chiu

    Color Practice by Makani

    Paved With Good Intentions by NorthernBanshee

    Traditional:
    Merry Christmas from Sam & Max by Steve Purcell

    Autumn by Steve Purcell.

    Sam and Max Season Two CD cover and Game cover by Steve Purcell

    Bubbles of Colour by Lois van Baarle

    Blonde Kiwis by Lois van Baarle

    I think that's enough for now.

    It's too bad, everything we've listed is digital art. Not that that's a bad thing, but it's getting harder to find really cool traditional artists.

    Well they aren't 'harder' to find. You just have to find them differently. Along with their more traditional medium, you need to search in more traditional manners.

    There are plenty of shockingly interesting artists.

    But then, I wouldn't say that, traditional art or plastic arts are well suited for the stuff we like either, so maybe that's where the disconnect is. The digital medium is still one held in disdain, so it fills me with quite a bit of hope when you say that it's easier to find.

    Yeah traditional pieces aren't 'harder' to find; however the digital medium has spread like a disease. The digital medium is being used everywhere because it's much easier to use and distribute. If you look at the background of this website you'll see a digital piece of two boxers.

    Anyways, most people dislike the digital medium because they feel digital work is cheap; which I understand, however that just brings about the never ending debate over art. If a piece looks beautiful does it matter how it was created? Besides, one could argue that digital art is just as difficult to master as traditional art.

    Digital art is equally as difficult, for sure.

    Hell, there is a lot of things that an artist must do to streamline his palette and arrange his piece, but they hold many parallels goign to digital. I find hotkeys and mechanical things in photoshop, far mroe challenging, than mixing colours and such.

    But I would call the background digital art! How ignorant of me. Unless you say it's art as photography and digial arrangement. It's not like someone drew that.

    I would consider it digital art, not good art, but digital art nonetheless. I mean think about Andy Warhol; all he did was discolor and arrange photographs.

    hmm, I'll forgive that you are comparing some textured photo from the cover of EA Fight Night to Warhol, but you are aware that Warhol used screen printing, right?

    Good stuff, StrixOwl!

    I particularly like your 'Shy Guy' character design. Is that an original design or is a modification of an existing character? I'm not familiar with Super Mario RPG.

    Andrew Wyeth reminds me of Fumito Ueda a lot.

    I found this guy the other day while googling for 'creepy pictures'

    His name is ZDZISŁAW BEKSIŃSKI (don't ask me to pronounce it!!!!), and I think he's Polish. He does a lot of album art so I've read.

    Here's his frankly AMAZING site: http://www.beksinski.pl/ (It requires Flash)

    - Check out the ethereal/ominous music! Very Ico.

    His work is really weird. It's beautiful but unnerving and scary at the same time. Particularly his Gothic architecture and graveyard pieces. He reminds me of a blend between H.R.Giger and Alan Lee.

    You can see more of his work here:
