ARTIST RESEARCH- theDURRRRIAN

I really admire his neat but sketchy style and the way he uses his colours. He uses a lot of dark vs light values in his works that really make the character pop out and the painting very dynamic. His style focuses a lot on fantasy, Asian style characters but as well as some sci-fi game ones. In most of his paintings you might see that the characters are much darker than the background they’re in, which makes them stand out much more. The tones are quite blocky and contrasted, while the lighting is quite desaturated.

The colour he uses is mostly greens/ dark yellow tones and browns. Most of the colours are also quite desaturated and the smaller details are saturated to make them stand out more, as well as give the painting small details.

He is definitely one of the biggest inspirations for me and I most definitely wish to be on his level in the near future.
