Today is the day for another top interview with another top artist and this month I bring you the immense digital art of Alex Ruiz. With an intense surreal feel to his otherworldly, abstract art, Mr. Ruiz is one of the most uniquely stylised artists I have come across.
What I love the most about his work (other than the scifi & fantasy elements), is the way he constructs his subjects. If you could imagine a giant magnet in a junk yard pulling thousands of metal objects towards it and then forming orderally into, say, a titan sized elephant (See Here), you can begin to see sort of what I am talking about. But, with a magnet, there is an element of randomness to the way in which the metal objects would stick. With Alex's work, I don't feel that randomness.
Alex teaches art and often posts "How-To" digital art tutorials on his Deviant Art page. SO as a treat, I politely comendeared 3 of these and reworked them for the blog (with permission of course) and will be posting them up every Thursday this month, starting next week.
Until then, read the awesome Interview.
