Artist Showcase: Hrvoje Beslic

Hrvoje Bešlić is a Croatian artist specializing in digital painting who graduated in 2007 from the Art Academy Zagreb. He learned how to draw on paper and only got his first PC a few years ago. Long hours since then spent with his Wacom tablet have brought him a long way, as you can see from the gallery. He has an affinity for fantasy, and scenes where a fight is just around the corner.

When I don’t know how to start a work, I just let my hands begin the job and try to exploit all the unexpected accidents as a base. Most of the time, that gives me all I need to begin an illustration.

Artist Showcase: Mikhail Rakhmatullin

Rakhmatullin’s characters often confront the viewer head-on, whether the subject is an alien with skin as variegated as an artist’s palette, or a mechanic who is, beneath all of the technology, aging, grizzled, and subject to the wear and tear of time. The environments he creates range from the nearly abstract to the thoroughly-realized worlds of his concept landscapes and battle scenes.

I had wanted to do a steampunk-themed piece for some time before the inspiration finally hit for “The Cartographer.” It’s such a uniquely diverse genre to work with, and there are all sorts of interpretive ways to approach the subject matter. I suppose it depends on my mood, but if I had to choose I’d be part of an airship crew. I’m a huge adrenaline junkie, so I’m game for anything that gets me off the ground and into the stratosphere!

I think my dream illustration assignment is to be asked to work on the vehicles for the next Avatar movie. I wouldn’t mind spending sleepless nights trying to come up with exciting designs that would end up on the silver screen.

For me, Dartmoor is at once strange and familiar, possibly because some of the art that inspired me as a kid was created by people who live here. There’s a curious mix of cosiness and otherworldliness.

Usually I begin with outlines and perfect them, and then do the painting. This time I decided to begin with a tonal sketch without the outlining.

Light, shadows, and atmosphere are all part of my essential work. I don’t like all the cold and artificial images that some artists are creating with the computer.

Artist Spotlight: Elena Bespalova

My art is influenced by Japanese animation to some degree. I still like anime a lot and I watch it when I have free time. I think that anime have a great graphic style and often as not their plots have unusual twists.
