the street dancer by GregStevens the street dancer by GregStevens
This is part of a series that I have been working on using the Liquid Ink brush set in Corel Painter 11 with my Wacom Tablet. These have generally been "minimalist" pieces with flat coloring (usually 4 colors or less) and very stylized design.

Some of my other liquid ink experiments include:



As you can see, I have played with spatter effects, "ink drop" effects, and calligraphy pen, sometimes mixing styles in the same piece. My initial experiments were all black-and-white, although I have been doing more 4-color pieces lately.

I love the effect of this kind of minimalism, and will continue to explore what I can do with it.

Nope! It's the angle and the shape of the leg. Legs aren't cylindrical -- at least, muscular legs aren't.

Nope, it's just foreshortening. The leg is angled back.

Very cool. The shadow on the wall reminds me of a Rorschach test.

Thank you! And yep -- I used the "spots of ink" effect in Corel Painter for the shadow, along with some shape manipulation. I wanted the shadow to have a stylized, almost abstract kind of effect to it.
