There are some people out there that are so damn good at what they do that I don’t really know how they accomplish things. Really good artists, for example, are people that I usually get totally blown away by if they are good at what they do. And as we all know, some are quite awesome. They are almost good to the point where you start thinking their work is done in 3D, but it isn’t. The art that is done by using a paintbrush is usually the kind that looks the most real in my opinion. There are some artists out there that can actually create stunning art with watercolor or just pencils also.
Just have a look at these pieces of 2d paintings from artist Serge Birault, aka PapaNinja as he is called. This is the kind of stuff that you could look at all day just because they are beautiful. You’re probably thinking, “Well, of course you think they are, you’re a guy.” Forget for a second that these are pin-up posters made to poke the interest of men. These are actually really good. It is stunning art if you just allow yourself to look at it that way.
Each of these paintings must have taken ages to finish, or maybe I am just inexperienced in drawing awesome 2d art. It could possibly be both, or could it? Well, the bottom line is that once you start checking them out, you just want to see every single one. So tell me if I am wrong, but didn’t you just look through them all before even starting to read what I wrote about them? How many of you actually read what I wrote first? Or, were you too busy checking out the female attributes of 2d art? Be honest! #JustSaying
