RE: Tonys Sketchbook
@tony-barber welcome to the forum tony. What kind of work are you looking to produce? Seems very graphic novel stylized. Hope to see more!
Yes! very stylized, my main influences are mike mignola/ Jack kirby * black and white , simple shapes/ heavy shadows. I really like mikes use of impressionism and negative/positive space and composition too.
Ideally I would like to create poster art that tells a story in one image.
I’m Tony from Adelaide ,South Australia.
I’ve always been a creative type but its only been the last few years that ive been drawing consistently and taking my art more seriously . In those few years my skills have improved at a steady pace.
- Currently experimenting with style and digital inking/ painting. * bought a ipad pro and procreate :)
- My work flow starts with a red pencil sketch then black ink over the top.
- Inspirations are from tattoos, pop culture and the human figure.
- My instagram is where im most active. [https://www.instagram.com/tonybarberartist/](link url)
Im hoping joining SVS forums with give me support,advice and direction in my art.
Nice to meet you all!
