Beast in the Beauty
What started out as a Photoshop custom brush tutorial for the Biomech Encyclopedia has turned into a much more significant piece for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This character represents a woman’s confidence, resilience and serenity in the face of the horrors of all kinds of abuse.
She is alive. She is at peace. She is unafraid. She is permanently scarred. 
Yet she is ready. Ready to begin again. Ready to live as the vibrant, confident, stronger than ever gorgeous creature she was always meant to be.

A new piece for my 'Elegant Horror' series. Created in Photoshop, custom brushes and shapes on steroids here:D
Inking Brushes

What you'll get for ONLY $2:).....:

  • 20 brushes in one .abr set
  • All brushes are ready to rock! Shape dynamic and brush tip shape  settings have been finely tuned by me to get that juicy 'Marco' look!
  • ***brushes made in Photoshop CC and can be used in CS6

I have long been a fan of the the living legend, Marcos Mateu-Mestre. If you don't know his work, please look him up and prepare to fall on your face;)

In my utter adoration and mad envy of his work, I tried to hunt down a set of his brushes( for years) to no avail. And I'm glad I didn't find them, because it forced me to make my own and ask the right questions while studying his work. Mainly, 'what are the brush settings he's using to get those looks????'

These brushes are my humble attempt to emulate his style of work in my own drawings. 

Ultimately at the end of the day, it really is lot's and LOT'S of drawing practice that will get your drawings to have the confident strokes that you see in Marcos' work. But I hope these brushes will give you a little insight and creative boost that can help create that awesome inky-thick-thin-dynamism you want in your  drawings.

I've been following this guy for a few months now, a true modern day 'alternative' guru. CEO of a health and fitness company, author, and podcaster. Fascinating guy to say the least. By 'alternative' I mean, he partakes and promotes psychedelics alongside strict health guidelines and sprinkle in open relationships...seems oxymoronic, but his methods to this madness ring true in my life experience.
Creature study created in zbrush using the Quicksketch feature, symmetry on. 
I love doing straight on portraits, it really allows you to stare back into someone...or something;)
