I freaken LOVE this :) I'd love to see this pattern build up the shape of some letters!
These are absolutely beautiful. Totally agree with @Laura Bohill, some lettering would look awesome.
Holy crap shadow.
wow, the depth is redonkulous.
glad to see more hand drawn stuff. love the colors.
Damn Ryan, why can't you learn how to draw?!? lol
Beautiful man, I have those same awesome pens and you are making a great use of them! :D
Love it! Are those Copic markers?
@Nelly Mercado Yup, Copics all the way!
Diggin this! Love the color choices.
Put this on a shirt. That's awesome, Ryan.
Man, so awesome.
Somebody's got a lot of time on their hands... Looks great! :-)
@SojoCreative Even though this is for a real project, I like to make time for personal stuff or else I go crazy!
@Ryan Putnam Agreed!
Looks fantastic. These markers in your recent works seem to be made for you exclusively :)
What is your process for moving this from paper to computer? I always struggle with losing integrity of lines.
@Robyn Britt I really depends. Most of the time when I move to computer, I intentionally loose the line quality. I'm usually drawing clean vector lines.
For example, here is a sketch:
And the finished vector:
If I am trying to keep the line quality and general ascetic of the sketch. I usually just scan, play with levels, and pretty much use as is.
However, I have recreated this sketch style of work through vector with a number of Art Brushes, Styles, and Live tracing techniques. Below is a project with all the shots using this style.
Thanks so much @Ryan Putnam for taking the time to provide your insights and processes. Much appreciated. Your work is so original and an inspiration. I feel like I am still trying to develop my original style, which means I need to do a lot more experimentation and risk taking, especially with my sketches and different mediums to use.
