Greetings, my dear followers!
Following my previos post Fantastic Artworks and Where to Find Them
, I would like to introduce my favourite traditional artist!
He is known as ALeksecond
or even AlternativeJane
, his works can be found throughout the internet starting from 2012 or earlier. I've been following him from the early days and it is interesting to see how different themes has evolved through the years. One of his main themes is hanging, consensual or accidental. By looking further you can also find mirrors, girls couples and a lot of latex. What caught
my eye was a fantastic mixture of doubt (like - what am I doing?), curiosity (just to try), pleasure with a good part of self-admiration (yes!!) and regret (what have I done?! Oh fu...). His artworks do not include any stories or explanation, except for the short one-line captions. And I think it's fine, because viewer's imagination is far more powerful than any story.
From what's available on DA, we can track the evolution of a wall/door hanging series:
Another interesting invention is the seated hanging:
I believe one of the best ways to get better at art is to follow and study fellow artists from your niche, especially the exceptional ones.
Here are some of my attempts to learn from him:
They might not look alike much, but what I tried to do was catching the mood and incorporating it into my own style.
Most of my experiments can be found in Hanging Case Study
, and also 6 Cases
There are also several tributes by another great 3D artists
(One more tribute not suitable for DA you can find on desadov forum, Cheremosh
gives a clear description on how to find more of his works on his page
That was my quick overview of
- one of the artists who affected me the most.
Finally, I'd like to know, what art inspired you as an artist?
