The Infamous Contrast Brothers by AugustinasRaginskis The Infamous Contrast Brothers by AugustinasRaginskis

A pair of notorious bandits who are known for spreading fear, destruction and confusion everywhere they go. Mostly known for spreading confusion, though.

This idea spent probably about a month brewing inside my skull. I wanted to draw this, but I was rather intimidated by it because I wasn't sure whether I would be able to draw this well and was just too lazy to do a time consuming piece like this, but I'm glad I finally got to doing this. It was fun designing the robot parts and goofing around with these delicious colors.
Whenever I start doubting if I became better at drawing and want to assure myself that I, indeed, I did, I have a very simple method to do so. What I do is: I turn around in my stupidly large armchair in which I usually draw and look at a little thing I call “The Wall of Crap”. This Wall of Crap consists of all the drawings I did more than a year ago hanged on a wall behind my chair and part of the sealing. It takes about 0.2 seconds to assure myself that I made significant progress since then. Or I can always look into the Drawer of Shame which holds even older works, but I really don’t want to. But with this painting I didn’t have to take a peek at the Wall of Crap, I could instead be happy while staring at the wall in front of me which I don’t have a name for, but if I did, it would probably be called The Future wall of Crap( I hang never works on this wall).

For one thing, who are the brothers? Are they the two riders? Are they the two mounts? Are they a rider and a mount of the same "species"? If not, does each rider takes offense that the other rides one of his own kind? I AM CONFUSED! Consider it a compliment. :D

Thanks. I did have unproportionally large amount of fun while drawing those rocks. It sounds like the most boring thing ever, but it wasn't, don't know why.

I can tell, they look awesome. :) Sometimes just zoning out and painting texture is the best part

Another really great piece with bright, vivid colors and really cool shapes- I love the design of the mechanical robot and horse and how they have a texture almost like brick and wood.  The bright red gives off a great contrast to the almost neon green of the furred horse and rider.  Speaking of those two- while the robotic creatures look made up of wood and brick, the furred, green, organic creatures almost look like fire- two elements you would not generally think work well together.  And though the colors are bright, bold, and vibrant, I can see where you trying to make sure they all fit under the same lighting and mood.  Well done!

I always feel extra high when I look at your art...It's very psychedelic.

I will take that as a compliment. I don't know if your comment was meant to be one, but I will take it as such.
