Style Experiment by MicahJGunnell Style Experiment by MicahJGunnell
Study of a photo by Irving Penn(not sure who the subject is). I wanted to try some different things stylistically with this one...I'm a big fan of Sergio Toppi's work, and I've always wanted to try some of the distortion techniques he uses in his work. I simplified the shapes in this but still tried to keep an element of realism. The color scheme is analogous with a complimentary. Hope you like! check out my blog where I'll be posting the majority of work like this: [link]

Aw man, I adore this. My own style has always been recognized (as I'm told by others) for having very sharp, dramatic lines and angles. Lately I'm getting more into high detail paintings, and the more realism, the more I'm losing that flavor, or so I fear. This is a great example of how one can keep both qualities - very inspiring! I'd love to see you toy with the technique in future.

I can tell - Your work is very broad in the best kind of way, and I'm sure your knack for really stretching your arms with style and technique a big aspect of that. I think the pieces in which you've gone out of your norm have the most energy and life. This is still one of my favorites though :'D Awesome work as always, Mr. Gunnell!

Thank you very much for that, its nice to hear! I do enjoy "designy" type work, so maybe that shines through in those pieces. Thanks again for the kind words!
